This is imbecilic hooey of the rarest breed.

It's kind of a funny story. Actually it isn't. And not much in this movie is, unless you like to watch elderly dogs urinate, middle-aged movie stars overact wildly, and Seth Green get hit in the groin by a golf ball.

This imbecilic, mean-spirited farce, which sneers at adults, leaves you wondering: where are the Three Stooges when we really need them?

We have reached a point in our moviegoing life where the two most horrifying words a studio can mutter are "Robin" and "Williams."

Old Dogs does to the screen what old dogs do to the carpet. It's unfortunate that only the latter can be taken out and shot.

The great thing about comedy these days is that few people are making movies like Old Dogs.

Unfunny and uninspired, this dog deserves to be put down.

The ploy of pairing John Travolta and Robin Williams, whose salaries probably represented most of the budget, is the only pedigree Old Dogs has going for it.

November 25, 2009
The timing of the comic set-ups is consistently amateurish, as if scenes were edited with hedge clippers, with the actors mugging frantically, waiting for the take to end.

Only the irrepressible Luis Guzmán, stuck in a walk-on bit as the stereotypical mooching Hispanic, is able to milk this cash cow and exit with his dignity intact.

A total train wreck.

Old Dogs is no fun whatsoever, just a collection of stale kibble.
November 25, 2009
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.

Though no animals were harmed in the making of Old Dogs, the lead actors were defanged. But like a pair of Labradors, they have a playful rapport.

It is an irredeemable affair.

If Old Dogs isn't the absolute worst movie either star has appeared in, it's close enough to count.

Largely forgetting the kids as it subjects its stars to one humiliation after another, Old Dogs doesn't even have the courage to commit to its familiar but serviceable premise.

A cheesy chew-toy of a comedy about reluctant fatherhood.

Predictable as the premise is, Travolta's and Williams' unpredictability makes for some chortle-worthy slapstick, less of Laurel & Hardy vintage than of Abbott & Costello swill.

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.

November 24, 2009
Insipid, predictable, broad comedy mixed with Disney Family Values makes for one exasperating sit.
November 24, 2009
The movie includes an interminable scene of the men taking the wrong medications for their various boomer ailments, with weirdly horrible comedic side effects.

Does no one know how to film physical comedy anymore?

November 24, 2009
Too bad this shrilly tuned comedy doesn't demand more than clock-punching effort from everyone involved.
November 24, 2009
Director Walt Becker's film goes for humor and heart, achieving neither.

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