  1. Saw this preview a few days ago in the theater. Bawled my eyes out.

    Looks like we are going to get one heck of an acting performance from John! I can’t wait :)

  2. Ooh! I REALLY can’t wait to see this one. It looks both touching and amusing. John, Drew, AND Ken Kwapis directing? That sounds like a winner to me.

  3. I’ll be there. I have a weakness and a huge soft spot for animal stories, add John to that and it’s win-win. He looks great even in puffy coats and knit hats.

  4. “Somewhere, Michael Scott just shed some tears after seeing that preview.”

    i was waiting for the tagline of this film to be:

    ‘He had no arms or legs, and he couldn’t see, hear or speak… and that’s how he led a nation.’

  5. So this is the movie that caused 3 episodes last year to have basically no Jim? Anyway, this movie looks touching but in general not very good. I might go to see it, although my schedule is pretty full.

  6. I wasn’t sure about this one, but the Globe and Mail newspaper (an national up here in Canada) gave it a very positive review (and that guy never likes anything but foreign films and documentaries, so that’s saying something).
