My Dog Skip (2000)

Few people can resist such a charming story about a boy and his dog as My Dog Skip when Warner Home Video (WHV) releases the sleeper hit on Blu-ray Disc October 19.

Winner of the Critics Choice Award for Best Family Film (2000) and winner of two Young Artist’s Awards for Best Ensemble Cast & Best Family Feature Film (2000), My Dog Skip opened nationwide on March 3, 2000 as the number one family film on more than 2,400 screens and remained the country’s number one family film for the next three weeks. The film grossedmore than $35 million total at the box office.
 
My Dog Skip is based on the best-selling memoir from award-winning author Willie Morris. This powerful and touching family film features a top dog cast, including FRANKIE MUNIZ (TV’s Malcolm in the Middle), KEVIN BACON (Frost/Nixon, Mystic River), DIANE LANE (Nights in Rodanthe, Must Love Dogs), and LUKE WILSON (Old School, My Super Ex-Girlfriend).
 
The story follows young Willie Morris as he transitions from a shy, nine-year-old boy to a confident young man who discovers the wonders of growing up with the help of a fun-loving terrier named Skip. 
Frankie Muniz offers a compelling performance as Willie Morris. Kevin Bacon portrays Willie’s father, Jack Morris, a stern yet kind-hearted war veteran, and Diane Lane plays his strong-willed, loving mother who strives to give her son the freedom that his strict father does not always allow.
