This movie, based on the book of the same name, was a beautiful piece of work, as a man (Matthew Modine) is killed in a car accident and is reincarnated as a dog, in which form he seeks out his human family. Also in this form, he begins to suspect that he was murdered. If you get the chance, read the book too. Both versions were excellent, and the cast was first-rate. Samuel L. Jackson was well cast in the role of the voice of his dog friend, and Modine and Eric Stoltz were well-cast too.
