This is my favorite movie of all time. The themes (life/death, right/wrong, love) and the shear beauty of the scenery, the nobility of the dogs, the goodness of the bag lady -- all come together to make this the perfect movie for me. I don't know why it doesn't get 5 stars.

WOW ! Your whole family will love this story of a man who is a workaholic; crashes his car, comes back as a dog, and learns what he has missed. He replays throwing catch with his son, remembering how beautiful and wonderful his wife is, and what a jerk he was at home and especially at work. As a dog he has a funny sidekick, also a dog who helps him out of scrapes. Not to mention , Fluke is a beautiful dog.

THIS MOVIE KILLS ME!!!

"I saw "Fluke" in the theater with my girlfriend and it took all my
restraint not to cry in front of her. But I did anyway.
"Rudy" and the ending of "Field of Dreams" have contained some of
the most emotional moments ever for me.
But "Fluke" has more of them and so many poignant, beautiful,
I was choked up through the whole film."

"I was torn whether to give Fluke a 1 or 5 star rating. Why? Because I was literally CRYING right from the very beginning. Right when you see adorable puppies walking around in some back alley with their mother, I was crying.
I'm 29 years old and I'm a man. Guess what? I WAS CRYING LIKE A BABY WATCHING FLUKE!
This is seriously one of the most emotionally heart-breaking dog movies I've ever seen.
First of all, I love golden retrievers with a passion. I think they're absolutely the most adorable puppies and dogs on the face of the planet.
Whichever writer was responsible for finding just the right golden retriever to star in Fluke did an AMAZING job. I was looking into this dogs eyes and seeing one of the most intelligent animals I've ever seen. We're talking a dog that made me cry just by his spot-on eye movements alone. It's like the dog was part human. He'd follow along perfectly to the movements of the little boy and his mother at *all* the right moments. Amazing job on the writers part.
The storyline... oh right. Just by reading the description you know what to expect, and trust me, it delivers *exactly* how you're imaginging it would. A husband/father comes back through reincarnation as a golden retriever to search for his wife and child.
Eventually the wife and child notice that the dog is doing a ton of things that strongly resemble what their father/husband used to do, so they become interested and suspicious of the dogs actions.
However, the majority of the storyline is about the golden retrievers adventures through a dreary city and just being a dog on the run from all the bad guys who keep threatening to put him in doggy prison.
He meets a friend -another much bigger and older (and more street smart) dog, and so the two dogs then become close friends.
Yes, you will hear voice actors actually talking to indicate that the two dogs are communicating with each other. It actually works though. Works REALLY well. Remember- I was actually crying hard watching this film earlier today. I wouldn't be crying if it hadn't worked- I would've been laughing, and I definitely wasn't doing that!
I absolutely love Fluke... or hate it! It's one of these strong reactions for sure! I watched this movie when it first came out, but since that time I've learned to appreciate dogs even more, so the storyline really hit me incredibly hard. If you absolutely love dogs... I don't know. I seriously can't recommend it... or do I STRONGLY recommend it? AHHH!!!"
