Patrick is like having your face licked a little too eagerly by a clumsy puppy; many will like the sensation and even those who don't will politely long for it to end.

The Guardian

It's a film jam-packed with very good actors and big names, and suffused with a puppyish willingness to please. But where is the bite?

The Telegraph (UK)

The film struggles to congeal, falling back on laboured gags set up with mechanical lack-of-ease.

The Times (UK)

There is no actual story, and no hint at psychological realism. Just a jaded sense that viewers will watch any old rubbish with a comedy dog, and a belated attempt at third-act drama.
