 Plot summary

Los Angeles, California is the main and heartwarming scenario where life and fate interconnect five different stories as well as their characters with their respective canine pets: Elizabeth is a famous newscaster of a morning TV show; after a disastrous interview with former basketball player Jimmy, Elizabeth's boss decides to contract Jimmy as co-host due to the high ratings of the interview. On another side of the city, Tara is a coffee-shop server who passes her days talking with her shallow dog-walker friend Daisy. Tara, who is crazy about friendly but full-of-himself vet Dr. Mike, one day meets Garrett, the eccentric, shy owner of an animal-care center who is unable to tell Tara that he loves her. Grace and Kurt are a married couple made nervous by the arrival of their first adopted child Amelia; they note that she doesn't seem happy with her new home and her new parents. Dax is a teen in an adult body, leader of aspiring rock band Frunk; after visiting his pregnant sister Ruth and her husband Greg, he's forced to keep Ruth's dog, although the building where he lives doesn't allow dogs. Finally Walter, an aging, lonely widower, loses his pet when it escapes from his hand, receiving the unexpected help of a pizza-delivery boy named Tyler to find it. As time moves on, things get complicated for everyone: Elizabeth and Jimmy start to feel attracted to each other, making their work more difficult, especially after Elizabeth discovers that Jimmy has been hired for a more important job on another channel. Tara accepts Garrett's offer to work as volunteer in his animal-care center at the same time she starts to date Dr. Mike; meanwhile Garrett learns that the owner of the building has sold it and he'll lose the center. Amelia finds Walter's dog, which makes her happy, but Grace and Kurt fear that one day Amelia will lose her new friend if the owner appears; Dax is caring for Ruth's dog, although eventually it starts to put order in his life, even as it creates trouble to hide it from his neighbors. Walter decides use his formation as teacher to help Tyler with his academic studies, preparing exams for some of Tyler's teachers as Kurt. Tara's decision to organize a concert to raise funds to save Garrett's animal-care center will cause all of the stories to converge, revealing that life, fate, and dogs are more related than anyone can imagine

 A deff feel good movie great for a date night
Threw this movie on and watched with the wife and we both enjoyed it a lot

Acting is great, story lines are great and of course the dogs were great

One of the better feel good movies I have seen in a while

 A little too sweet, but still a good doggo
This is kind of the Hallmark version of Short Cuts. It has 4 interlocking comedic stories, two love and two about family. On their own the stories are pretty good, all a bit too formulaic and predictable. Together they add up to more than the sum of their parts. It's all just a little too pat and a little too sweet

One of the things I really liked was none of the characters were unnecessary mean or cold. Even the antagonists were largely nice people. It was nice break for films like these where one story is usually overwrought melodrama. Sadly the stories don't fully integrate and the film drags a little at the end because of that

But overall this is a charming droll comedy that has just enough freshness to be worthwhile. The director and cast keep it breezy, light and dogs are all very cute. Gertrude is the best

 Here for the Dogs
It seems like every month now I'm tackling a new film about dogs or that caters to dog lovers. 'Dog Days' was a small independent film that largely went under the radar in 2018, but released to mixed reviews. It's full of cheese-ball writing, cringe worthy romances, and even mostly unearned emotional depth. If that's your thing, then by all means Dog Days will please most rom-com casuals. But even I'm not sure this film passes the Bechdel Test, as almost every scene features women talking about men, and rarely about their own lives outside of romance. Not to say there aren't some incredibly sweet moments, especially with our four-legged best friends all over the film. For me, the characters were spread far too thin for my personal preference

5.8/10
