My personal choice this weekend is DOG!!!! FYI Malinois are amazing!! They are a lot of working dog and many of our K9 Officers in CT have them!!!
DOG stars Channing Tatum and Lulu (a Belgian Malinois dog) as they adventure in a 1984 Ford Bronco and race down the Pacific Coast in hopes of making it to a fellow soldier's funeral on time. Along the way, they’ll drive each other completely crazy, break a small handful of laws, narrowly evade death, and learn to let down their guards in order to have a fighting chance of finding happiness.
Right now the film is only in theatres. Its distributor, MGM Studios, was recently acquired by Amazon. when available for streaming services, it will likely arrive on Amazon Prime Video first.
