Now on to Cujo. Basically it's billed as being about a family trapped in a car by a rabid St. Bernard. That is about 20 minutes of the film (I didn't actually time it, but that's what it felt like). right before that happens you get a couple kills and it turns out the dog isn't even owned by the people in the car which wasn't the whole family. Most of the focus was on the fact the wife cheated on her husband who's ad firm lost a client, also this family has frequent car troubles. I found this movie disappointing, because here is what I had expected: My understanding going into the film for some reason was that a family was in their car in the winter going on a trip with their St. Bernard. Somehow their car breaks down off the road far enough that passerbys wouldn't notice them. Somehow the dog has developed rabies (I think he had it before they left and when he started to show signs they didn't let him back in the car). So now we have an entire family, trapped in a car, freezing and starving for several days, unable to leave the car for help due to the rabid dog outside. What I think this version would have added is that the family has a relationship with the dog, creating a dilemma, the kids don't want to see the dog die because they love it, but the parents understand that the only hope they have of survival is to kill this canine member of their family. There could be insistences that they just need to get the dog to a vet. This also makes the audience more sympathetic to the dog, our villain, since they have seen how much the family loves it and are devastated to see it act so cruel. This is the movie that I wish I had seen, not the one that I saw.
