Because of Winn-Dixie does no harm, and it should appeal to younger children while charming more than a few adults.

A cloying 'family entertainment' filled to the bubbling brim with goody-goody intentions and, somehow, managing to deliver on none of them.

not heavy on plot, but it is a series of charming adventures with common, heart warming themes about finding friendship and dealing with hardship

Because of Winn-Dixie's heart-tugging sadness makes its joy even sweeter.

Starting with the dog, Wang's warm-and-fuzzy story could have used some careful trimming.

[It's] a delightfully moving experience... It's more than a good kids' movie; it's a good movie for everyone.
