Channing Tatum Stars In ‘Dog’… But Falls Short

March 5, 2022

Friday, March 4th

Hey everyone!! It’s been soooo long! I had to check my AMC app & the last movie I saw in theaters was end of January. Nightmare Alley was FIRE though. Last night was Friday, & we went to go see Dog. Yes I love Channing Tatum, yes I love dogs! And YES I brought Slim!!! But no, it wasn’t that great lmao. We hit the 9pm showing at AMC Century City 15. I love this mall, super bougie but just feels good to be there overall. There were only like 7 people in our theater… definitely a tough sell with Batman releasing this weekend.

IMDB plot: Two former Army Rangers are paired against their will on the road trip of a lifetime. Briggs (Channing Tatum) and Lulu (a Belgian Malinois) race down the Pacific Coast to get to a fellow soldier’s funeral on time.

The real reason I wanted to see this was because I saw a big ass poster for it when I was at the movies one time. Not sure why, but it reeled me in. Shout out to whoever did the marketing. The movie starts out a big slow, but it shows Channing as an army vet who suffered brain injuries & therefore is no longer able to participate in the army. Crazy. So this one opportunity opened up for him to do SOMETHING in the space. There’s this dog Lulu who served in the army and her owner passed away, so Channing’s entire mission is to get Lulu to the funeral on time.

I thought the movie was alright, mainly because it was kind of dry. They label it as a comedy but it wasn’t THAT funny. There were some cute parts, but overall I wish it shed more light on dogs & the relationship with their owners. There was one scene where Channing has a seizure & Lulu is there for him, but I wish they focused on the mental health angle a tiny bit more. Overall, I’d give it a 5 out of 10. It’s an hour 41 minutes but felt way longer.

ANYWAYS… back to work. I’m working for the next 4 hours so I can go see Marry Me later. Thanks for reading! <3
