A cringe-worthy crude comedy that has more bark than bite.

Heartless, brainless and unable to do anything with what it does have to offer, Old Dogs doesn't know who it's for or what it's offering. It just needs to get made because people have to have something to do. Spare yourself and your kids.

John Travolta and Robin Williams are no strangers to shamelessness. But not even they can walk away from "Old Dogs" with a shred of dignity - a mean-spirited, insulting "family" film that essentially pees down its leg and calls it comedy.

Featuring a mixed-up-medication gag, a guy-in-a-gorilla-suit gag and a suntan-gone-wrong gag...well, you begin to understand the level of inspiration that went into the execution of the film.

Um embaraço para todos os envolvidos - inclusive o público.

Shadows on the Wall

It's aggressively awful, and manages to push its worst gags so numbingly off the scale that we're left slack-jawed in disbelief

A trip to the vets is needed, to have this dog of a movie, quietly put down.

The jokes are played painfully safe and not even the fleeting presence of a few a name faces detracts from the sheer inanity of the plot and outright creepiness of the film's central pairing.

Both Williams and Travolta mug furiously and the kids need locking up.

[Travolta and Williams] engage in a torrent of slapstick set-ups that are neither witty nor funny.
| Original Score: 2/5

You've never experienced horror until you've seen Robin Williams in a Speedo getting a spray tan.

A slapdash embarrassment of feeble age gags and cultural stereotypes, Old Dogs is at once crass, corny, amateurish, insulting, uninspired, deeply phoney and extraordinarily unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

It's perhaps wise to avoid this movie at all costs.

Old Dogs is a milestone in the [Travolta's] career, the moment when he trumped Battlefield Earth to make the worst film of his life.

At the screening I attended I didn't hear one person laugh, though I did hear plenty of involuntary sighs and groans, some of them emanating from myself.

Dumb and painfully unfunny.

The pickings are slim going on invisible.

Times (UK)

Most repellent is the undercurrent of homophobia, the brutal cultural stereotyping and the fact that Travolta looks like a man wearing a slightly melted rubber John Travolta Hallowe'en mask.

Birmingham Post

This is easily the worst film of the year so far, and frankly last year too. It is embarrassingly, painfully unfunny.
