Movie Reviews

  • while it's not entirely lacking in sharp dialogue, Kasdan's movie is weirdly unwieldy
    2 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • when all is said and done, the dog is the only thing you care about in Darling Companion
    2 of 4 by Rex Reed [New York Observer ]
  • this film shows no inclination to pose as the portrait of a generation in transition
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • there’s an animated sequence halfway through that may have been an attempt at hip playfulness but just comes off as strange
    by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine ]
  • there are overlapping stories. There's a good cast and a lot of dialogue
    by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledge ]
  • the story's treacly all-souls-in-alignment outcome is never in doubt, but as Kasdan dogs go, this is light-years better than Dreamcatcher
    2 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • the movie uses the mutt's disappearance as a frame on which to hang a well-worn package of fatally mild domestic disorder, then resolve it in what feels like real time
    by Ella Taylor [NPR ]
  • the folksy shenanigans are well-intentioned but frankly interminable, with Kline’s wry efficiency the best relief from all the yowling and whining
    1 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • like Freeway, the lovable stray dog at the center of this very teary comedy, "Darling Companion"has lost its way
    by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • like Freeway, the film sometimes wanders off the track
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • it woofs for thee
    by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com ]
  • doesn’t amount to much more than a fairly painless way for the AARP set to spend an hour and a half watching a movie with stars their own age
    2 of 4 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
