The amount of talent wasted in this shallow, predictable tale is very impressive.

Absolutely no blame for this snooze-fest can be laid at the feet of the stars, who do the best they can with the rough material they have been given.

As pedestrian as a stroll through the dog park, Lawrence Kasdan's latest (and worst) film is both insulting and inconsequential.

It might be a safe bet for your mom's movie group because, well, it plays it safe.

I enjoyed Lawrence Kasdan's Darling Companion on several levels, even as I realized that it's not - by any standard criteria - a terribly good movie.

It is depressing to reflect on the wealth of talent that conspired to make this inert and listless movie.

Let's just say that the dog gets the best lines.

Soppy, time-consuming, alleged feel-gooder about Diane Keaton's rescue dog, who gets lost in the Colorado Rockies.

The predictably fine acting can't save the movie from the insipid writing, which is centered on the less-than-illuminating insight that some people really love their dogs.

Like Freeway, the lovable stray dog at the center of this very teary comedy, "Darling Companion"has lost its way.

A lost-dog drama so insufferable it makes one wish its human characters would also run off and never return.

Oh, man. Man, oh, man.

The folksy shenanigans are well-intentioned but frankly interminable, with Kline's wry efficiency the best relief from all the yowling and whining.

Prickly couple loses dog, rediscovers love in ho-hum drama.

Darling Companion is nothing more than another story about a trip into the glories of nature that is ruined by a swarm of annoying WASPs.

It's being billed as an adult drama, but beware: Darling Companion is a ponderous film with very little charm and a snail's pace.

The problem is, like Freeway, the dog, "Darling Companion" seems to have lost its way as it just wanders looking for someplace to land.

April 26, 2012
This ponderous dramedy should make you want to sit and stay; I kept wanting to say to these irritating characters, 'No barking!'
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 22, 2012
An ambling, pleasantly inoffensive ensemble dramedy which suffers from a dearth of insight or elevating banter, and which mistakes authenticity for deeper dramatic engagement.
