LL, Max and I went. Kris, Karen and Mom watched the movie too. Steve and David showed up later. They were smart.
Not because the movie was bad. No. I am not calling it stupid because it was not well done. I am calling it stupid because by 2/3's of the way through, I am bawling like a five year old.
The movie was Hachi: A Dog's Tale. It starred Richard Gere and Joan Allen, so you know it was going to be good. It was based on a true story that took place in the 1920's in Japan but the movie changed it to modern times in America. It was about an Akita named Hachi.
Richard Gere and Joan Allen were wonderful, but the star of the movie was the darn dog. I know they probably used several dogs for the movie, but it doesn't matter. You fall in love with the darn dog. It was so adorable. Luckily, I had my real life Hachi, Beau to hug through out the movie. Max kept asking if I was OK. "Yes damn it! I mean darn it! I'm Fine!!" *sniff, sniff* So OK!! I admit it. I am a sentimental fool.
