    Perhaps worst of all, the movie is painfully long. show more

    If Firehouse Dog was on cable, where it belongs, it would make a passable diversion from homework or chores. But a kid would have to be pretty desperate to leave the house - and waste allowance money - for this modest distraction. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Jennie Punter The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    An entertaining family comedy full of both tricks and trickery. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    There's too little dog and too much fire house in Firehouse Dog, a mild kid comedy that turns into a flaming arson mystery with some scenes that could be too scary for little ones. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    No cliché is unturned, no "dog duty" pun avoided (get it -- dog doody), no creepy gay-panic subtext unplumbed in this family comedy. show more

    And that dog -- or, rather, that digitally enhanced replicant -- is just plain creepy. show more

    This is a really good movie! And if you like action movies and dogs, you'll really like it! It will keep you on the edge of you seat, especially near the end! I remember I was got so excited during the 1st time I saw it I actully moved up to like 1 foot in front of the TV! You will be so caught up in the action, you will forget to eat your popcorn!

    I went to see Firehouse Dog with my 3 kids. I thought it would be an ok film with no writing, no real story and a cute dog. I was pleasantly surprised by the story and the characters besides the dog who turned out to be quite a hero. My suggestion is take your kids to see it, you will not regret it.
