Philadelphia Inquirer
This is a sweet, gentle film - slow and sunny like a summer day, with a message that growing up can be hard, but can also serve as the wellspring of memories that will sustain you for a lifetime.

It works because it never tries to be more than the very personal memory piece it is.

Chicago Sun-Times
A movie like this falls outside ordinary critical language. Is it good or bad? Is there too much melodrama? I don't have any idea. It triggered too many thoughts of my own for me to have much attention left over for footnotes.
75
A film that proves even the tiredest genre can be reinvigorated in the right hands.

USA Today
A family movie with a heart and a brain. And if you aren't moved to tears, you might need an organ transplant.

Portland Oregonian
Atmospheric and genial, and you've got to love the spectacle of a dog driving a car or parading around town like the unofficial mayor.

Variety
Superior family entertainment.

A sweet, sweet movie; it's just one that celebrates the bond between a boy and his dog with heart and a heavy, handy hand.

New York Daily News
Certainly there are people who will welcome this kind of "wholesome" family entertainment, but it feels false.

Hokey.
