Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

Anti-working mom bias gives a sour feeling to an otherwise innocuous dog movie.

Family gets dog. Dog is large. Insert laugh track here. Still, it's a whole lot better than the wretched (and endless) series of sequels.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A family comedy about a wacky & destructive St. Bernard that is totally without any merit whatsoever.

[Grodin's] acting is so detached and lifeless that it is close to an out of body experience.

Austin Chronicle

Unless you are taking a child, there is absolutely no reason you should put yourself through this almost perfectly mindless exercise in canine celebration (exception: if your favorite comic strip is Marmaduke, this may be the movie for you).

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The first half of the film is amusing, but when it turns to a distasteful subplot that has an evil veterinarian/scientist stealing pets for nasty experiments, it goes sour.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A safely banal concoction in the tradition of the bland live-action Disney features cranked out during the Magic Kingdom's dispirited years after Walt's death.

It's the kind of clever, innocuous family entertainment that's always in short supply.
