It's a movie with the look of a cartoon - and that's OK. Geared toward all ages audience, the animation style may make it more accessible to some (if sharing it with kids under 12, preview it - some war scenes may be too scary). Of interest as a "feel good" story about a rescue dog, as well as for its glimpse into WW! era history - USA isolationism, influenza, Gen Patton cameo, Armistice Day.

This is a funny lossely based story of an actual dog of war. I read about the real Stubby a few years ago and was happy to take this out. I wish the extra features were better and had an actual documentary about Stubby, but that is a minor point.

This movie is not just an animated dog like it states on the Internet, the whole ting is done in really poor animation.
What a shame to waste such a great, interesting true war story on some cheap animation. Any child over 6 would pick up on this.

This movie absolutely blew me away, it was just so good! This dog was a true war hero and I'm so glad they finally made a movie about him. It was heartwarming, funny, and just had the perfect combination of everything all mixed together. I loved seeing the actual pictures of Stubby at the end and I felt compelled to research more about him after seeing this movie. I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone!!

A heartwarming, inspirational tale that 's almost unbelievable--except it's true. I would recommend that everyone, young and old, see this film. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and be awed at the amazing, super-human feats Stubby accomplished. The real-life newspaper photos of this remarkable canine were awe-inspiring. Be sure to view the "bonus features" that offer background information about Stubby's accolades and history. Stubby's story should be part of every high-school textbook that deals with World War I.
