YMMV: Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey

This movie contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Adaptation Displacement: Not many people are aware that this film is a remake of a 1963 film called The Incredible Journey.
    • Also, the original film was based on a book.
  • Awesome Music: This movie's got a nice (and often overlooked) soundtrack; this is arguably the best score.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The Batdog scene near the beginning of the movie.
  • Fridge Horror: Chance's aversion to the pound and specifically "the back room." Did he see pets taken in to be put to sleep?
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Shadow's plight near the end becomes this when you know that his actor, Don Ameche, died in same year the film was released.
  • Magic Franchise Word: "Cats rule and dogs drool."
  • What an Idiot: "There goes the rabbit. There goes the pup. There goes breakfast."

Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco

  • Sequelitis: Averted, this movie is a decent sequel to the original.
