OK, I admit I cried a small bucket at the end... but at least I hated myself for it. This is bland and obsequious tripe or, as my own dog would say, "Woof!"

I can vouch that director David Frankel succeeds in wringing out every last tear from the audience.

Save some time; stay at home and think of your dead pets instead.

The conclusion transforms at least this part of the film from sappy romance to beautifully authentic meditation on life, death and a family's love for its long-time loyal dog.

The idea that this screen dog is so cute and lovable that everything ripped, chewed, swallowed or destroyed can merely be replaced and ignored is more out of a Stephen King reality than the world as we know it.

In the cinema, all of us tough, cynical critics had tears welling in our eyes, swallowing hard; our lips, so often curled in a cheap sneer, were now trembling, because of the same desperately sad thought: "Owen Wilson used to be really good..."

There is something wildly odd about a film that measures human happiness with the whims of a dog.

My Dog Skip for people in mid-life crises, it's too talky and trouble-laden for tykes but will doubtless prove as critic-proof to dog-lovers and the stars' fans as it did in the US.

It's an anemic comic-drama about a dull couple searching for happiness, and they happen to have a dog.

Wilson and Aniston's dramatic chops would have been better served by a film that did not need to interrupt their characters' story arcs every now and again for a broad bit about the rambunctious family canine.

No movie this year, maybe EVER in your entire life, has tried this hard to tug at your emotions and make you cry, cheer and laugh. Too bad Marley & Me is too long and has trouble with nuance

Kids and adults will like it, but be forewarned -- it's not all laughs.

Not every book has a movie lurking in it.

Frankel turns the camera toward the canines as frequently as possible, but too often we're stuck with Wilson and Aniston's bland characters. You wonder if it might have been better to let sleeping dogs lie.

Though it requires three or four hankies to mop up the mess this sentimental tale leaves behind, the tears feel largely unearned.
December 29, 2008
There are no bad dogs. But there are bad dog movies.
December 29, 2008
The production manages, against heavy odds, to make its canine star an incorrigible bore. The problem is bad parenting.
December 29, 2008
It has some funny moments, a lot of tears and way too much dead time in between.

It's difficult to invest in John's suburban angst, questioning his choices while looking around at his huge home, pretty wife, healthy kids and cushy career.
