    This is the weird thing, Old Dogs is not that bad. show more

    This is not the Travolta of "Pulp Fiction," nor is it the Williams of "One Hour Photo." Though no animals were harmed in the making of Old Dogs, the lead actors were defanged. But like a pair of Labradors, they have a playful rapport. show more

    It runs a fast 88 minutes, is broad as the waistlines of its stars, and is remarkably family-friendly if you don't mind bathroom humor. show more

    Travolta, who delivers an impressively enthusiastic performance, seems to have no idea that he's stuck in one of the year's worst movies. The perpetually pained expression on Williams' face, however, suggests he knows otherwise. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Insipid, predictable, broad comedy mixed with Disney Family Values makes for one exasperating sit. show more

    Nostalgia is part of the modest charm of this disposable but inoffensive picture. Old Dogs makes old dogs out of all of us. show more

    Old Dogs is so oafish, when it tosses us a biscuit, it feels like we've been smacked with a newspaper. show more

    None of it is funny. It’s all pain and no funny. show more

    Old Dogs does to the screen what old dogs do to the carpet. It's unfortunate that only the latter can be taken out and shot. show more

    2 stars for a father/daughter movie, but overall, kind of a waste of money.

    Very cute and funny. Perect family movie with clean entertaining humor for everybody: adults and children. Travolta and Williams are always good for a laugh. Also a good change from typical kids movies.

    overall, this movie was decent, robin williams seems to shine more and more as his career progresses. He really has aged like a fine wine. my only problem with it was all the racist undertones.

    To say this movie is bad is giving it too much credit. I would describe it as painful to watch.

    When I saw four stars for User Reviews, I thought the critics were wrong. The critics were NOT wrong. This is one of the worst, most boring movie I have ever seen. It should only get one star for the stars who are in it but must be very embarrassed by their performances. Bad director! Stupid plot! Terrible acting.
