Taps into just enough of that connection between humans and dogs to make even jaded cat-lovers a little moist in the eyes.Boston GlobeJanuary 01, 2000

Great boy-and-dog tale, but be prepared for tears.Suite101.comSeptember 19, 2010
Not a mawkish dying-dog tearjerker, "My Dog Skip" carries a touch of Mark Twain, with quasi-dangerous tall tales and awareness of a gap between childhood and boyhood. Plus, as it's said of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," there's cussin' in it.Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)July 01, 2004
Features two irresistible lead characters -- and you can't always say that about a movie.Combustible CelluloidJuly 10, 2003
So riddled with live-action Disney movie clichés that I kept waiting for Cruella de Ville to show up and threaten to skin the dog alive.Spirituality and PracticeMarch 05, 2002
