After this section of the movie wraps up it’s hard to bond with other owners, but then the film doesn’t really want you to.That said, it’s the first half of the film that feels most packed with familiar cliches. He’s wonderful here also, lending a charm and sincerity to Bailey and his counterparts that, helped by some top notch animal acting, allows the audience into the dog’s ‘headspace’ even when the writing leaves a lot to be desired.

When she bats her lashes at you and looks at you with those big, black eyes, it’s going to be game over.
Over the course of the 120-minute running time we follow the travelling soul of a dog in various different doggie bodies, starting with Bailey - owned by Riverdale’s non-ginger KJ Apa as a young Dennis Quaid - then moving on to police dog Ellie (yes the dog switches gender, but is still voiced by Josh Gad), then faithful companion Tino and, finally, Buddy.
