The Art of Racing in the Rain

Critics Consensus

Its heartstring-tugging overtures may be difficult for dog lovers to resist, but The Art of Racing in the Rain is sentimental and contrived.

  • I feel like this device probably works a lot better on the page... It is so mawkish, smothered in cloying anthropomorphism from start to finish.

    August 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Cancer is to melodrama what CGI is to the MCU: a cheap, easy tool to control audience emotions used by filmmakers (in this case, director Simon Curtis and scenarist Mark Bomback) who have nothing to sell but tripe.

    August 10, 2019 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…
  • I wanted a refund on every lump in the throat and teary-eyed moment I had experienced...

    August 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Even with the occasional dollop of dog-related humor, The Art of Racing in the Rain feels as ponderous as its title.

  • As is, this tale of friendship and companionship between man and man's best friend is bogged down in weepy cliches ripped straight from the Art of Making the Audience Cry handbook.

  • A strong contender for most ridiculous tearjerker of the year, starring Kevin Costner as a golden retriever.
