  • Without wandering far from the tried-and-true formula, director Brandon Camp (son of "Benji" creator Joe Camp) brings a measure of style and competence to the project that the franchise has never seen.

  • This 2018 release feels like it arrived fresh from 1974, and that is what makes it a delight.

  • Pretty underwhelming, a perfunctory kids-and-their-dog caper that despite running less than 90 minutes feels stretched to its limits.

  • For those looking for the most benign family-friendly entertainment, the nostalgic and corny "Benji" will do the trick.

  • This is all fairly dreary, in keeping with the franchise's long-running aversion to comedy and consistent fixation on bad familial vibes.
