A sweet film, laced with magic realism, and it tackles some rather dark themes in a way that is perfectly appropriate for young children.

Movie Metropolis

Because of Winn-Dixie does no harm, and it should appeal to younger children while charming more than a few adults.

Lessons of Darkness

A children's film that embraces storytelling modesty and a balanced view of the world as both depressing and joyous.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

The untidy answers and selfless actions in Because of Winn-Dixie stand out from the family films populated with bratty kids and clueless adults.

not heavy on plot, but it is a series of charming adventures with common, heart warming themes about finding friendship and dealing with hardship

Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

The movie offers a loving but strikingly tempered assessment of family and town life that one seldom finds in today's raucous family films.

It's all very sweet, the acting is excellent, especially Tyson and young Ms. Robb. The dog is very good too.

Because of Winn-Dixie's heart-tugging sadness makes its joy even sweeter.

[It's] a delightfully moving experience... It's more than a good kids' movie; it's a good movie for everyone.

Despite its charm the material is simply too thin for 106 minutes of screen time.

Plenty entertaining and chock full of valuable lessons about friendship and respect.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Some older viewers might be confused that director Wayne Wang offers no entry point for grownups. This is a kid's view of the world, free of irony and in-jokes.

For every scene where the shaggy dog gives a human-looking smile, there's another about the unavoidable sadness that comes with walking on two legs rather than four.
