Critic Reviews of "Paulie"VarietyMay 12, 2008
Paulie has moments of minor charm but lacks the magic to fully capture the imaginations of either children or adults.Chicago ReaderMay 12, 2008
Shalhoub gives an impressively nuanced performance in the dangerously cliched role, and Paulie -- a combination of trained parrots, animatronics, and the voice of Mohr -- comes across as a fully developed character.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
A perfect family movie with the intelligence, humor and hug-me moments to be a great first-date movie, too. Just remember to bring a hankie.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
The film is aimed at children, I suppose, although I don't think they'll like Paulie all that much. I didn't.San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
Paulie has elements of a good weepy, but overall it never quite gels beyond being a passable novelty.Houston ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
Unusual and surprisingly agreeable.Common Sense MediaMarch 01, 2013

True family entertainment that caters for grown-ups as much as for kids.TV GuideMay 12, 2008
The story is rooted in real feelings and relationships, and parents will find as much to enjoy as children.Film ThreatDecember 06, 2005
My head still throbs from being hit repeatedly with blunt life lessons.MovieholeMay 06, 2005

Its star is a very appealing little guy. Parents will be mildly amused, too.
