    Pull the trigger before it goes up to $35. Then you'll be cursing yourself for missing out over a few dollars savings.

    Mike I had that disc delivered by Netflix, kept it by my tv for about a week then sent it back. I couldn't bring myself to watch it.

    Now My Dog Tulip is at $20.72 on Amazon.

    Seems like it's taking thirty to forty cent drops every week now.

    Shortly after that last post (in May) the price of My Dog Tulip zoomed back up into the $35 range again.

    I thought I had missed my opportunity (as Jeff had predicted many weeks ago).

    But then I checked my Amazon Cart tonight and found:
    I decided not to let the opportunity pass me by again!

    I'll have it on Friday. :D

    It took until last night, but my wife and I finally watched the much-desired My Dog Tulip last night.

    As is so often the case with films that you believe will be "right up your alley," this one disappointed greatly.

    Very disappointing. I wish the price had never come down. :D

    Why the original book was well-received (not to mention the movie--Roger Ebert called it the "best animated film of the year"), I'll never know. An old man's ruminations on his dog's bowel and bladder movements...not to mention mating details...just isn't interesting, cute, or insightful.

    The premise of the story is that this man found in his dog--in an unlikely turn--the best friend he never had in his life. But very little in the story spoke to why that was true. I know that many here--including Tony--tried to talk me out of it. Should have listened.

    Oh. And no need for any tissues. Nothing connected me to the story emotionally.

    I think--seven months later--I can finally "close the circle" on the 4-8-2014 Weekly RoundUp now. :laugh:

    Did you really expect to find "enlightenment" from a film about a dog?

    I tried but for a differeent reason because I was afraid I'd be heartbroken. I was actually hoping you would like it so my not wanting to watch it would be justified.

    But now I've justified your "not watching it" with a different reason! :D

    As I expected based on your comments, Rotten Tomatoes shows My Dog Tulip with a Critics Rating 21 points higher than its Users Rating (91 and 70).

    That is interesting. I NEVER think to use Rotten Tomatoes as a resource. (I don't know why. I just don't.) But that might just stick with me now and make me think to check there first from now on.

    Rotten Tomatoes is the best. It shows a selection of capsule summaries of critic and user reviews that provide a great quick overview.
