    Jonathan Curiel San Francisco Chronicle

    It's all so cute -- except that Weber wants this to be a thoughtful film. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    The resulting movie is a mixed bag, not quite a documentary and yet as "true" to Weber's fascinations as a dog named True can be to his master. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Gives these canines the sensual elegance of the Calvin Klein models Weber has so famously photographed. Would that the substance of the film have come close to having the impact of its visuals. show more

    It's all deliberately homemade and raggedy, and that's where its charm comes from, along with the delightful old-music score. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    No matter how deep one's affection for man's best friend, there's something undeniably fatuous about considering the emotional impact 9/11 has had on a dog named Rain. show more

    Kevin Crust Los Angeles Times

    An undeniably odd film, this ode to pooches is more than just a dog calendar come to life. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    It all makes for a poignant mix, the boy inside the man, pressing his nose against the glass, longing for the journalistic authenticity of someone like Burrows while still believing in Lassie and the unconditional love of True. show more
