Movie Reviews

Harold Wolf | Wells, IN United States | 06/22/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A terrier dog named Bobby, known since the mid 1800's in Edinburgh as "Greyfriars Bobby" has a monument to his devotion to his master. His story is one of love, unwavering loyalty, determination, and dog charm. Bobby became the hero and object of affection to a city, old and young, rich and poor, all united to forever keep the story of such a magnificent dog alive forever.

Bobby was nothing but a small Skye Terrier who was so devoted to his master that he could not stand to be away from his grave after the funeral. Bobby's story is of the extreme measures needed to be taken to remain atop the grave of the man he loved. The cemetery allowed no dogs.

This version, "THE ADVENTURES OF GREYFRIARS BOBBY" is a bit more accurate to the true Scotland events than the much acclaimed Walt Disney version titled "Greyfriars Bobby", the same title as the book by Indiana's author of youth books, Eleanor Atkinson. See my reviews of both the Disney DVD and the book. Both are recommended at 5 stars, just like this DVD version.

This newer release, has some really fantastic music. The scenery of the film is as good as any Scotland travelogue could provide. The tale is as heartwarming as any could be written--AND REMEMBER--this is a TRUE story, not fiction. I fell in love with Bobby.

Greyfriars Bobby will live on in the lives of the people of Edinburgh forever. It will in your mind and heart as well as soon as you watch one or more of the versions of this fine dog-devotion story. It makes no difference if you do it movie style or by reading. I recommend both.

This is one fantastic childrens' gift, although adults will enjoy it completely as well. For the very young, I might suggest the Disney version DVD, as it shows a little less peril. And Disney decided to end the story prior to Bobby's death.

"As I Westie owner I could not get enough of this movie and was disappointed when it ended. I absolutely loved it. It has a great moral story and really shows the attributes of Westies. A little sad at parts but overall it was uplifting and delightful."
Not the dog it was supposed to be
D. Smith | Baton Rouge, LA United States | 11/02/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"NO, they didn't use a Skye Terrier as the story is about, but the Westy star is a winner, bordering on "too cute" at times. For a film company to want to redo this story to be more accurate, as they touted, this story isn't as strong or any closer to the real story than Disney's version. Still, it's beautifully filmed, heart-warming, and enjoyable."
Great little movie

"I am a Westie owner and loved the Westie in this movie...Since it was not available in the US, was thrilled when I saw it on Amazon. Was used but in perfect condition..."
