Short answer? No. Milo Ventimiglia a is a bland, if pretty, non-presence in the film.
Nobody went to see it, and anybody looking for star power and charisma won’t see any sign of it from him in the movie.
Whatever he gets across in the TV show, he was a huge hole in the center of this movie built around him and a dog voiced by Kevin Costner.
The very premise of this LA Times piece is laughable. Did the reporter see the movie?
“Milo Ventimiglia, after a decades-long successful career in television, is trying his hand at leading man status in the film “The Art of Racing in the Rain.” https://t.co/gA48E53MPJ https://twitter.com/latimes/status/1160747760817229824?s=17
