Secular Movie Critics
…an LA-set ensemble that pings between couples, siblings and bickering strangers as all problems are solved and all wounds are healed by dogs. …lovely character work… [3/5]
Kevin Maher, The Times
…intertwined lives of owners and pets makes for obediently heartwarming comedy… nimbly funny…
Robert Abele, The Wrap
…This omnibus comedy, about the unique ability of dogs to connect us to others and ourselves, is mildly amusing with some moments of genuine sweetness. …[2/4]
Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
…Furry friends elevate otherwise routine ensemble comedy… four-legged stars bring out the best in the movie’s crisscross of humans — and in the film itself…
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
…empty escapism for the dog lover in all of us… lightweight romantic…ensemble comedy…
Peter Debruge, Variety
…satisfies on a sentimental level, which is all that it ever was meant to do… [2/4]
Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
…The cast is pleasant and attractive… sweeter-than-average treacle…
Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
…the animal performers that are the real stars here, and they don't disappoint… dog lovers are clearly the target audience… There's nothing remotely unpredictable about anything that occurs…
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
…aside from the occasional idiosyncratic comic beat, “Dog Days” remains committed to coloring within the lines of established tropes in the animal-centric family film… relentlessly saccharine…
Derek Smith, Slant
…disjointed but entertaining… [2½]
Jane Horwitz, The Washington Post
…a pile of sugary sentimentality…
Cath Clarke, The Guardian
