Dog Gone, which launched on the streaming service just two weeks ago, has had a shorter journey than usual to the top of the Netflix charts, but it has now landed the top spot on the platform.
The film follows a socially awkward college student and his family who adopt a dog they named Gonker, who they maintain an inseparable bond, only to discover that the dog is missing while on a hike. It's a big and sad Marley & Me film, especially.
The Pale Blue Eye, a dominant Netflix film, topped Dog Gone in its first week, after Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and The Hatchet Weilding Hitchhiker. The latter three films followed the film in the second week.
The Pale Blue Eye received just shy of 40 million viewers last week, compared to Dog Gone's 20 million viewers this week. It appears everyone is all well and well at work after the New Year break.
Dog Gone has a 40 percent critic rating and a 72 percent audience rating in terms of its critical reception.
Dog Gone, a moving pet film based on a true story created by Pauls Toutonghi, is now available on Netflix.
