Critics Consensus

Good Boy may not use many new tricks, but it uses the old ones well enough to create a fun and scary installment that gives the excellent Judy Greer the lead role she deserves.

Critic Reviews for Good Boy

As you might imagine, the tonal balance between something that's part Private Life and part Cujo is a bit tough and director Tyler MacIntyre can't quite hold it together.

Overall, the mixture of comedy and social comedy about the plight of women struggling for a work/life balance mostly works for me, especially considering the game performance by Judy Greer.

INTO THE DARK: GOOD BOY may not be the best in the series, but who cares when you have the goodest boi of them all chewing names and clawing butt.

Good Boy is a slight thing made more character-rich by Greer.

Good Boy is a campy film that doesn't really have a low point. While there are some odd choices in its storytelling, this is one well worth watching, especially for dog-moms.

Good Boy is well-served by the unlikely but undeniable chemistry between Greer and Chico, who plays her loyal canine pal Reuben.

Into The Dark: Good boy is one of my favorite episodes of this season. Not only is Judy Greer so perfect at being just a little creepy, the plot is great too.

You're watching Good Boy for Judy Greer, the softest pair of puppy-dog eyes in the biz, and random violence enacted by a knee-high pooch who you'd never suspect.

Good Boy doesn't have a plot so much as a gimmick: It's not funny enough to function as satire, nor is it scary enough to work as a horror film.

I found myself almost completely engaged with Into the Dark's latest episode "Good Boy," even though it suffers from some of the same woes plaguing the series as a whole.
