A touching, family-friendly entertainment

Chicago Tribune
A surprisingly heartfelt father/son relationship, handled with restraint by director Todd Holland.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
An entertaining family comedy full of both tricks and trickery.

If Firehouse Dog was on cable, where it belongs, it would make a passable diversion from homework or chores. But a kid would have to be pretty desperate to leave the house - and waste allowance money - for this modest distraction.

The Hollywood Reporter
No best in show but a decent family comedy.

The terrier Rexxx might be the least appealing mutt ever to slobber on screen.
38
And that dog -- or, rather, that digitally enhanced replicant -- is just plain creepy.
38
There's too little dog and too much fire house in Firehouse Dog, a mild kid comedy that turns into a flaming arson mystery with some scenes that could be too scary for little ones.
38
No cliché is unturned, no "dog duty" pun avoided (get it -- dog doody), no creepy gay-panic subtext unplumbed in this family comedy.
38
Charlotte Observer
The filmmakers' ineptitude is staggering.
25
Perhaps worst of all, the movie is painfully long.
