I am giving this movie 5 stars for Molly Shannon who was more than adorable and for the people who decided to make it.There are not many movies like this one and it does send out an excellent message so thank you very much for that!!If I was to make a couple of criticisms I would say that the scene in the house will all of the dogs was very exagerrated.My four dogs settle right down inside the house as do all of the other dogs that I have heard of including in homes where there are more than 10 rescue dogs and they are not all so devilishly destructive.I guess this scene was meant to have a dramatic effect.Also,I would rather have seen Molly's character go to a pet food store and buy vegan dog food or make her own in an animal rights-vegan movie rather than go to a supermarket and load up on commercial junk dog food.Lastly,the guy that worked at the SPCA(Newt) really bothered me when he took it into his own hands to euthanise Valentine.This is something else that I do not want to see and does not make sense coming from a vegan character like him in a film like this.The DVD is definately entertaining and worth watching though so I highly recommend it!!

I loved this movie. It's funny in an unusual and offbeat way, but it is also kind-hearted and sweet at the same time. It tells the story of Peggy (Molly Shannon), a shy, lonely woman who has in the past been hurt by the people around her. She shares a close bond with her dog, Pencil. Pencil dies early on, and the rest of the film follows Peggy on her journey through grief. The film's strongest point is that it successfully depicts Peggy with dignity. Her genuine love for animals--instead of being a weakness--is actually what helps her become a courageous and strong person. While in another writer-director's hands Peggy might have been the butt of patronizing jokes, or dismissed as weird and unhealthy, Mike White manages to turn Peggy into a beautiful person with a lot of love to give. That love may be unconventional, but it is no less life-affirming.

Even the unlikeable characters in this are likeable - a hallmark of good writing in the lighter vein. Great movie for people who like dogs and other animals and/or people who go their own way. Thoughtful, and makes you feel good without feeling like you wasted 1 1/2 hours of your time.

it was hard to watch at times, because it is sad
but the main character's sentiments were spot on.

I strongly disliked this movie.It wasn't even slightly funny in my opinion.It was really depressing & the review on the front of the case is ridiculously misleading.
