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.

Movie Info

Based on the best-selling novel by Garth Stein, THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN is a heartfelt tale narrated by a witty and philosophical dog named Enzo (voiced by Kevin Costner). Through his bond with his owner, Denny Swift (Milo Ventimiglia), an aspiring Formula One race car driver, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition and understands that the techniques needed on the racetrack can also be used to successfully navigate the journey of life. The film follows Denny and the loves of his life - his wife, Eve (Amanda Seyfried), their young daughter Zoe (Ryan Kiera Armstrong), and ultimately, his true best friend, Enzo.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain is not a great movie. The plot is bogged down by purposeful tearjerker moments. Only worth a watch if you love dogs and want to cry.

  • Ventimiglia is solid and Seyfried, a personal favorite of mine, does a wonderful job as a loving, supportive wife.

  • An entertaining film that's light on plot points, "The Art of Racing in the Rain" is the kind of film Walt Disney would make in the late 1950's and early 1960's...

    November 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Predictable and rote, The Art of Racing in the Rain nevertheless has its heart in the right place, even if there is not much art to it and precious little racing.

    September 8, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Costner is a pro-dog activist and deeply in love with his own pooches, and he aces his first voiceover role.
