True family entertainment that caters for grown-ups as much as for kids.

The story is rooted in real feelings and relationships, and parents will find as much to enjoy as children.

Paulie has moments of minor charm but lacks the magic to fully capture the imaginations of either children or adults.

Paulie isn't a complicated film, but it is heartfelt. And for a change, parents in the theater won't feel embarrassed by the things their children are laughing at.

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.
