Critic Reviews for A Boy and His Dog
In spite of some clever ideas and a few well-wrought images, it seems too schematic and its satire too blunt.
Jones' debut as a director nevertheless has a distinctive tang, as affably unprincipled as the series of villains he played for Sam Peckinpah.
It's got a unique... well, I was about to say charm, but the movie's last scene doesn't quite let me get away with that.
The good ideas are marred by awkwardness; the terrible ideas are redeemed somewhat by being, at least, unpredictable.
If it's weirdness that you're after, this cult film goes the whole nine yards.
Audience Reviews for A Boy and His Dog
In the post-apocalyptic future survival in the barren wastes means searching for grub wherever you can, but a young man wants ... err ... more, if you know what I mean. A telepathic dog with a radar tuned for such sure comes in handy. What's the moral of the tale? True pulp sci-fi don't need no stinkin' moral. A cult classic with more questions than answers, but okay.
Great post-apocalyptic movie. Sure, it's low budget, but the idea of an intelligent talking dog and his goofy human sidekick (played by Don Johnson) was a great pairing. They got into some outright dangerous and naughty adventures. The adversaries were great too - from the rough scavenging humans and their vehicles on the surface to the murderous white-faced American townsfolk underground. It was low-budget, but very imaginative and entertaining. The ending was grotesque but hilarious.
