This nicely modulated film largely avoids the hyper-aggressive jokiness and desperate stabs at relevance that often plague kidpics.

Sometimes a rewarding movie theatre experience comes from a simple film that doesn't promise more than it can deliver. "Show Dogs" promises talking dogs who fight crime. It delivers.

Vulture

The film's lack of inspiration at every level - technical, narrative and comedic - is so crushing that, save for pre-adolescents, most will consider this a top contender for worst of breed.

Hollywood Reporter

A high-concept family comedy that manages to avoid being taken for the runt of the litter, even if it doesn't really bring anything fresh and different to the arena.

If you came for cute canines you’ll get them, but you’d get more entertainment from an hour of dog videos on YouTube.

Think of it as “Miss Congeniality” for dogs, replete with the sort of slapstick humor, puerile gags and for-adults-only pop-culture references required of such endeavors.

Arnett has the terse air of a man doing anything he can to keep up with his alimony payments...

Packed with forgettable wisecracks, this is a very American brand of children's entertainment, crass and overbearing but harmless.
