I really found it entertaining and loved the fictional town of Naomi, FL. The dog holds up the story well- what an actor. Saw the movie many times. Going to visit the Winn Dixie store because of it.
Over all, it's decent enough to spend a day or two watching in the classroom to pair with the book.
The story is one of compassion and reaching out to those around you, whether dog or human. It has touching moments, happy moments, sad moments and a whole lot of funny parts.
NOTE: Alcoholism and depresssion are touched on in this movie - so you might want to screen it to decide if your young children are ready for these topics.
Suffice it to say, that this is a great family movie, full of love, humor, and quirkiness. It doesn't miss in relating a Godly message on several levels, which I love. The story is nice enough that even an unbeliever would probably really like this movie for their kids.
It does deal with some of life's difficulties, such as fears, divorce, parental abandonment, loneliness, insecurity, etc. Many of them are either somewhat healed or overcome, by the end of the movie.
Dave Matthews plays a delightful character, and sings several songs during the movie.
And let's not forget the Litmus Lozenges. "They taste sad,...... like not having a dog!"

The film follows India as she wanders aimlessly from one encounter to another, but because of the dogs antics, the young girl soon gets to make new friends with people in the community. Youngsters will see lots of animal antics that will make them laugh and parents will get a film where a young girl and her dog brings a fractured community together.
The single disc is somewhat low volume and features are sparse. Language [basically English with subtitles on/off], scene selection [behind the scenes, gag reel, training winn Dixie, fox.co [realeases/self publicity]. The film itself is full of over the top sentimentalism, but AnnaSophia Robb portrays her role perfectly. This is classic Sunday afternoon viewing and definitely a film that grandparents can watch with the grandchildren without fear. A ***** feel-good family film.
They were enraptured as was my little dog "Codie". The young actress who played the part of Opal was enchanting and the dog "Winn Dixie" captured our hearts. I haven't read the book but this film makes me want to buy and read this story. It has a wonderful charm and the characters are sometimes eccentric, odd, loveable and eventually pull at the heart strings. I recommend this film highly especially but not preferably as a family film and feel people of all ages will enjoy this feature. Please make more like this there's enough pain and heartbreak in the world without seeing it on celluloid.
