5.0 out of 5 stars My Dog Skip DVD Review: Highly recommended! August 20, 2000
I didn't watch the movie in the theater because I figured that it's one of those children movies and I probably won't enjoy it. After reading about three reviews on and the good reviews from the viewers (dog lovers) out there, I had to give it a try.
My wife and myself watched the movie with our two dogs sitting next to us. We love our dogs but I wanted to watch the movie not because of the story of a boy and his dog (I could have watched "Ben") but because I wanted to see this touching story and the relationship one has with their pets, that's what I was interested in.
After we were done watching, we were both in tears. I looked at my two dogs and it reminded me of how much these pets are a part of our lives. The storyline of a kid who is bullied and how his dog helps him through his young life and eventually gains friends to the last 15 minutes which will nearly shatter your heart. An emotional roller coaster this movie turned out to be. for the DVD, the audio is mostly dialogue but the rear speakers are used pretty well. Especially during the baseball game. The video is clear and the colors are good. As for the special features, you get two feature-length audio commentaries. One with Frankie Muniz and animal trainer Mathilde DeCagney and the other with director Jay Russell. It was cool to see the deleted scenes and part of me wishes they left it in and I wish the director elaborated why he removed them from the movie. And of course, the ever loveable trailer and scene selections which I don't count as special features (all DVD's should have those).
All in all, "My Dog Skip" is a wonderful movie. I recommend this movie to all dog lovers. Those who dislike canines or any pets would probably not watch this movie anyway... Highly recommended for the dog loving fans out there and remember to have the tissue box nearby.

Format:VHS Tape
It gets rarer and rarer today that a film is made that includes a true story, no foul language, no sex and still is entertaining and suitable for children.
If you have extremely sensitive children, however, there is a very violent act perpetrated against the star, Skip. It is very disturbing, but sadly was a true event in the life of this dog and his boy. If you have a child who is overly sensitive, you may want until they are a little older before letting them see this film due to the one scene.
Despite the disturbing scene I mentioned, this is still a feel-good movie, lump-in-throat not-withstanding.
Even the most stony-hearted viewer will have at least a tear in their eye during some of the scenes. The film shows the growing relationship between a boy and his dog, his father, mother and friends.
Taking place in the 1940s when most people had big families, an only-child's only companion is an adorable Jack Russell Terrier puppy named Skip.
Skip is quite a unique character and everyone in town knows him, loves him and respects him. This was a highly enjoyable film and a good bonding movie for a family and children. You don't need to own a dog or have children to enjoy the film, however. If you hate dogs, however, this is not a film you should even consider. I found this a highly enjoyable film that exceeded my expectations. It earns a 5 star rating because of the convincing acting and a well-rounded family film that is actually suitable to show to every member of the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars How could anyone not LOVE this movie? August 11, 2000
By no means is "My Dog Skip" a perfect film. There are several segments that are ridiculously far fetched, the theme of race is only slightly touched on, and certain characters appear cliched and flawed. Having said that, however, I can rightfully say now that anyone who does not admit to even remotely liking this movie is an absolute fuddy-duddie! This brilliantly executed film touches on so many emotional levels that I not only found myself laughing throughout much of the story, but crying throughout the movie's final sequence. "My Dog Skip" is not your run of the mill family flick about a boy and his dog. It is instead a beautiful, if not heartbreaking, eulogy to childhood, innocence, and an era of America's past that is sadly lost forever. Though several reviewers have argued otherwise, I found that "My Dog Skip" never fell into a trap of sentimentality due to its honesty and truth. Towards the picture's end, for instance, when the narrator asks "Why in childhood do we wish time to pass so quickly, when in adulthood we wish just the opposite?" I felt as if I had been hit by a ton of bricks.
I recommend this film to anyone interested in nursing their inner child, for to watch this movie is to embark on a journey into ones past. To the filmgoer who is willing to dismiss cynicism and simply sit back and enjoy this gem of a picture, "My Dog Skip" will undoubtedly conjure up a plethora of memories, both painful, and cherished.
As you might guess, I flat out loved this movie, and cannot say enough good things about it. Therefore, I make no apologies for giving this movie 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Dog Skip - See it twice! April 2, 2000
By Will L.
My Dog Skip is a lovely, heartwarming tale (or tail, pardon the pun) about a misfit boy and his heroic dog. It is a coming-of-age story without all the usual Hollywood yukky adolescent "stuff." It's appropriate for kids, as well as adults, although the very young may be frightened by some things that happen to Skipper the Dog. I was amazed that Hollywood could release such a tender, heart-wrenching movie, devoid of blatent sexuality, in the year 2000. With the exeception of a few (and I mean just a few) expletives that probably earned it the PG rating, it is a really nice family film. I can't wait for it to be available on video and DVD from Amazon.
