...a gem of a movie for children and adults, despite its clichés.

Great boy-and-dog tale, but be prepared for tears.

Not a mawkish dying-dog tearjerker, "My Dog Skip" carries a touch of Mark Twain, with quasi-dangerous tall tales and awareness of a gap between childhood and boyhood. Plus, as it's said of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," there's cussin' in it.

Features two irresistible lead characters -- and you can't always say that about a movie.

So riddled with live-action Disney movie clichés that I kept waiting for Cruella de Ville to show up and threaten to skin the dog alive.

Taps into just enough of that connection between humans and dogs to make even jaded cat-lovers a little moist in the eyes.

While this family film often follows the traditional mechanics of its genre, the emotions it elicits feel far from manufactured.

Skip may not change your life, but if you want a movie you can take your kids to without any trace of off-color jokes, sex, or violence, this is one.

In its own quiet, poignant, character-driven way, it's a movie for almost anyone of any age who's hungry for a beguiling 95 minutes.

Flaws and all, this is superior family entertainment in the tradition of quality that co-producer Mark Johnson has long championed.

It's worth the trip for kids and grown-ups, because they'll find a quietly moving and powerful story...

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

My Dog Skip probes the concaves of memory to tell an honest tale and produce what is easily one of the best films for the entire family.

Eric Lurio
Greenwich Village Gazette

This might well be worth a rental for the kids when it comes out on video, but it's a bit too literary despite the wonderful cinematography.

| Original Score: 6/10
