The wolves in this film are really coywolves which are a wolf-coyote hybrid. Regular wolves that inhabit northwestern American states (including Alaska), northern portions of the Great Lakes region and Canada are gray/grey and white while coyotes have brown, tan, gray/grey and white fur. Coyotes that are partially wolves inhabit northeastern American states and eastern Canada. See more »
Cute, heart warming, if you can overlook the agendas and stereotypes
I went with children ages 4, 10, and 12, and all (including me) thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The 'agenda' items like the married gay couple about mid-way through, and the war veterans suffering from depression utilizing dogs for therapy, went over the heads of the kids.
So if you can be adult enough to overlook the agendas and stereotypes and enjoy a nicely paced (no slow parts) family movie reminiscent of 'Homeward Bound' without the sassiness, do so. Take the kids or grandkids and you'll come away from the movie the way movies like this are expected to leave you - happy, wiping away a few happy tears, and all the loose ends tied up in a bow.
