September 17, 2012
A cringe-worthy crude comedy that has more bark than bite.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5

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.

Trashing Old Dogs is a bit like kicking a puppy. But here goes.

Old Dogs seems to have lingered in post-production while editors struggled desperately to inject laugh cues. It obviously knows no one will find it funny without being ordered to.

There are some experiences no one should be subjected to even in the name of science. It may be that forced viewing of this film has been outlawed by the Geneva Convention.

endlessly, excruciatingly un-funny non-comedy

Does no one know how to film physical comedy anymore?
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 9, 2010
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.
November 24, 2009
Racist, juvenile and nonsensical.
March 22, 2010
Dumb and painfully unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

[Travolta and Williams] engage in a torrent of slapstick set-ups that are neither witty nor funny.

Incredibly dull and generic.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
November 25, 2009
As if to compensate, "Old Dogs" continually cuts away from Williams' antics to "cute" reaction shots from an actual old dog. That's a really bad sign for a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 22, 2010
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.

If Old Dogs were a person, I would stab it in the face.
December 2, 2009
It ain't as bad as you heard. I laughed a few times. Travolta and Williams are amusing.

November 25, 2009
A slack, sagging 88 minutes still feels rushed, with what must have been scenes trimmed down to micro-blip montages, and a final scene playing out over the credits; it feels like even the people making Old Dogs wanted to be done with it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
November 24, 2009
Insipid, predictable, broad comedy mixed with Disney Family Values makes for one exasperating sit.
November 26, 2009
A painfully unfunny attempt at comedy filled with lazy, juvenile, forced humor that's an insult to everyone's intelligence.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10
