Movie Monday: Fluke
Year released: 1995
Breeds in movie: Golden Retriever and St. Bernard
Notes: Fluke is essentially a film about reincarnation, specifically as people who die come back as dogs or animals. In this family film Thomas Johnson, a workaholic big shot, dies in a car crash and comes back as a Golden Retriever puppy who comes to be called Fluke. A St. Bernard named Rumbo shows Fluke the ways of the world as a stray dog. Fluke eventually realizes who he is and makes his way back to his wife and son, who he befriends as their dog. The final twist at the end of the movie makes this a worthwhile watch. Because of the family nature of the movie it is a little cheesy, but overall a good story line.
