With the proliferation of dog movies in the past couple of years, it’s no surprise that the astonishing animal journey film would soon resurface. “The Adventures of Milo and Otis” and the “Homeward Bound” were wildly popular family movies in the 1980s and ’90s, and now joining the canon is “A Dog’s Way Home.” It’s based on a book by W. Bruce Cameron, who also wrote the source material for last year’s “A Dog’s Purpose.” The film, directed by Charles Martin Smith from a screenplay by Cathryn Michon and Cameron, uses simple, formulaic storytelling to spin the tale of Bella, a rescued pit bull mix who makes her way home after a two-year walkabout.
