At the Movies: 'A Dog's Way Home' is sweet and sentimental

By LINDSEY BAHR
AP Film Writer

How much of a sweet tooth do you have when it comes to movies? It's a question you might want to consider before stepping out for “A Dog's Way Home ,” W. Bruce Cameron adaptation of his book about a dog who finds her way back to her owner across 400 miles of Colorado terrain, because this is one sugary concoction. Not that it's ineffective — I dare even non dog-lovers not to get a little misty eyed at the inevitable conclusion — it's just very, very, VERY earnest, like a PBS Kids morning show meets a cute puppy pics slideshow with much higher production value.
