Anti-working mom bias gives a sour feeling to an otherwise innocuous dog movie.
| Original Score: 2/5

Family gets dog. Dog is large. Insert laugh track here. Still, it's a whole lot better than the wretched (and endless) series of sequels.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

A family comedy about a wacky & destructive St. Bernard that is totally without any merit whatsoever.

[Grodin's] acting is so detached and lifeless that it is close to an out of body experience.

Unless you are taking a child, there is absolutely no reason you should put yourself through this almost perfectly mindless exercise in canine celebration (exception: if your favorite comic strip is Marmaduke, this may be the movie for you).

The first half of the film is amusing, but when it turns to a distasteful subplot that has an evil veterinarian/scientist stealing pets for nasty experiments, it goes sour.

A safely banal concoction in the tradition of the bland live-action Disney features cranked out during the Magic Kingdom's dispirited years after Walt's death.

It's the kind of clever, innocuous family entertainment that's always in short supply.
