Sgt. Stubby is an amazingly good movie. It seems that service animals have become quite popular in today’s cinema and that’s a good thing. My father had a saying, “The more I’m around people, the better I like dogs.”
To animal lovers, our pets are a member of the family — and how gratifying it is to see these four-legged heroes being honored, by giving them their own biographical movies.
I do recommend this movie to everyone — however I’ll include one caveat; there are some very tense moments when Stubby is doing his hero thing. Even though I knew Stubby was going to survive the war, there were times I had to turn away from the screen, in fear that somehow the writers felt that they should put a different spin on the movie and not let Sgt. Stubby come home. Hollywood has done some mean things just to make a bio a little more interesting — I’m just saying.
Anyway, if you feel that the little ones might get too stressed and have nightmares, maybe you should save this film for later.
