The ensemble comedy Dog Days is in theaters on August 8, 2018. I usually share five things to know about a movie before you head to the theater, but since Dog Days has five individual stories I decided to share something about each one!
Walter and Tyler
Ron Cephas Jones plays Walter, a widower who doesn’t get out much until his pug runs away. Finn Wolfhard is Tyler, the teenage pizza delivery boy who helps him hunt for his dog. Walter’s storyline is sure to bring on a few sniffles if not full-blown tears.
Grace, Kurt and Amelia
Eva Longoria is Grace and Rob Courddry is Kurt, a couple who have adopted a shy new daughter named Amelia, played by Elizabeth Caro. Another storyline that’s sure to bring on some sniffles, this one also got full on sobbing from me in the third act. Don’t worry…it was happy sobbing.
Elizabeth and Jimmy
Nina Dobrev plays Elizabeth, a morning show host who crosses paths with Tone Bell’s Jimmy when he’s hired on has her co-host. Luckily their dogs unexpected friendship helps to bring the two of them together. Speaking of sobbing, Tone Bell is in the movie’s most heart-breaking scene, one that brought on a full on ugly cry from me. Then I was laughing. Then I was ugly crying while laughing. Talk about an emotional rollercoaster!
Garrett and Tara
Jon Bass is Garrett, a dog rescue owner and Vanessa Hudgens is Tara, a barista who volunteers at the rescue. With the rescue at risk for shutting down, Tara finds inspiration and a possible new career when she helps to plan a fundraiser.
Dax and Charlie
Adam Pally’s Dax is charged with the care of Charlie when his sister gives birth to twins. Charlie and Dax’s storyline provides many of the laugh out loud moments in the film. Actually, I’ve talked so much about the moment that made me cry I’m afraid I’ve made the movie sound like one big sob fest. It’s not. I laughed out loud so much more than I cried when I watched Dog Days.
