The main dog looked like my Jack Russel that past away two years ago, loved the movie, cried my eyes out,. my three year old couldn't get enough. I have four dogs, all pound adopties. I loved this movie the kids were awesome in their rolls. WATCH THIS ONE IT'S SOOOO WORTH IT

Hotel For Dogs was a great movie for kids. I have 2 dogs and personally I love dogs so that movie is great for me and really anyone who likes dogs! It was a cute movie! And I thought it should get 4 stars!

I found this movie really enjoyable, it's happy, it's tear-jerking, it's happy again. I believed the relationship between Andi and her brother Bruce and really liked Don Cheadle. The foster parents were a little over the top but it is a comedy movie and some things will be larger than real life. In all a cute movie for kids and adults and how can you go wrong when Pedigree donates money to

On the upside, the movie could do something really positive for the cause of homeless pets: If audiences respond the way they should, dog shelters could be emptied in a week. Full Review

There are still cuddly pups and piddle jokes aplenty. Full Review

What it is packed with is lots of sneaking around, very cool gadgets, excellent stunts and some clever kids. Full Review

USA Today
Between the dogged efforts of the kids to save strays and the antics of the dogs, it's hard to resist this lively, though predictable, family movie. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
It's sad to see a promising fantasy turn into yet another industrial-scale fantasy-delivery system that beats up on its audience with mindless intensity and undercuts its own humanity -- and caninity -- in the process. Full Review
