5 Most Lovable Live Action Animal Movies My Dog Skip
My Dog Skip (2000): Just writing the name of the movie makes me want to tear up. Seriously, there is no way to get through this thing without bawling -- I dare you to try. Several powerful forces are at work here: an insanely cute Frankie Muniz as our shy, 9-year-old hero; the idea of a dog being your only real friend when you're a lonely, insecure kid; and of course, Skip himself, a lovable, scruffy Jack Russell terrier. Sure, this coming-of-age tale yanks relentlessly at your heartstrings -- and Skip's antics might seem a little too wacky for the truly, deeply cynical -- but its own heart is in the right place.
