News & Interviews for Paulie
Critic Reviews for Paulie
Paulie has moments of minor charm but lacks the magic to fully capture the imaginations of either children or adults.
Shalhoub gives an impressively nuanced performance in the dangerously cliched role, and Paulie -- a combination of trained parrots, animatronics, and the voice of Mohr -- comes across as a fully developed character.
A perfect family movie with the intelligence, humor and hug-me moments to be a great first-date movie, too. Just remember to bring a hankie.
The film is aimed at children, I suppose, although I don't think they'll like Paulie all that much. I didn't.
Paulie has elements of a good weepy, but overall it never quite gels beyond being a passable novelty.
Unusual and surprisingly agreeable.
Audience Reviews for Paulie
A boring kids movie with another talking animal. At least the cast has some good actors, though.
An extremely wonderful and sadly underrated film
Paulie is very adventureous Movie with an intelligent but too Naughty Parot. A tiny bit of everything in it. Some senti moments and lots of LOL moments.
