My Dog Tulip Reviews

Roger Moore
McClatchy-Tribune News Service

A wonderful animated movie for anyone who's ever experienced dog ownership at its most glorious, and most embarrassing.

Full Review Source: McClatchy-Tribune News Service | Original Score: 3/4

January 15, 2013

Here's a rare beast: an animated film about a dog that resists the urge to sentimentalise or anthropomorphise its canine protagonist, yet understands the human urge to do just that.

Full Review Source: Scotsman | Original Score: 4/5

May 9, 2011
Anthony Quinn

Affably voiced by Christopher Plummer, Ackerley is at once enormously affectionate and beadily observan, while the clever graphic style marks the switch between straightforward narration and surreal doggy reverie.

Full Review Source: Independent | Original Score: 3/5

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

Poignant and just the right side of whimsy, it's the movie Marley & Me should have been.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

Rarely has a needy bond between human and pet felt more unsentimentally and perfectly observed.

Laura Bushell
Little White Lies

Quirky and bittersweet, a treat for dog lovers and the dogless alike.

Full Review Source: Little White Lies | Original Score: 4/5

May 5, 2011
David Parkinson
Radio Times

Unlike most celluloid tales about man's best friend, this study in dedication, defecation and reproduction sometimes feels like an intrusion into a very private affair.

Full Review Source: Radio Times | Original Score: 3/5

Nigel Andrews
Financial Times

Is My Dog Tulip the best film ever about a dog? Is it Citizen Canine? My answer, yes.

Full Review Source: Financial Times | Original Score: 5/5

Ellen E Jones
Total Film

More Harold And Maude than Marley & Me; amusing, insightful and a little perverse.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Manages to say more about man's relationship with dogs in a single, lush frame than 'Marley and Me' would if it were to run on a loop until the end of time.

Kim Newman
Empire Magazine

A delightful animation for adults, its lack of sentiment makes it an anti-Marley.

Philip French

A classic book, a film to cherish.

Mike Scott

As embraceable as it is, Tulip often feels as if it would have been a better animated short than a feature.

Full Review Source: Times-Picayune | Original Score: 2.5/4

Amy Biancolli
Houston Chronicle
Top Critic IconTop Critic

It's an oddity, this film: a wry, wobbly cartoon made expressly for grown-ups, featuring quirky hand-drawn animation and very little dialogue outside the central voiceover.

Full Review Source: Houston Chronicle | Original Score: 3/4

Sarah Boslaugh

Many films have been written about the bonds between man and beast but few are as wise, as witty, or as unflinchingly founded in observation as My Dog Tulip.

Joe Williams

The scratchy animation, reminiscent of Jules Feiffer's beatnik-era doodles, is a homey complement to Plummer's autumnal narration.

A beautifully illustrated love letter to dogs and the people who own them...

Antagony & Ecstasy

This is pleasant, as far as it goes, though awfully sedative.

Michael Phillips
Chicago Tribune
Top Critic IconTop Critic

A marvelous animated feature, full of quiet joy, honest sorrow, wisdom and a wealth of clinical detail both excremental and reproductive, all rendered in a charming style approximating the dog drawings of James Thurber.

Full Review Source: Chicago Tribune | Original Score: 4/4

January 7, 2011
Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic IconTop Critic

It is told from and by an adult sensibility that understands loneliness, gratitude and the intense curiosity we feel for other lives, man and beast.
