Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This strange family fare, about a dog that was once a man, tries unsuccessfully to combine the expected magic of animal adventures with some more serious ideas."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Touching in a shaggy dog sort of way."
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"Fluke has some interesting points to make about animals and about living in the present moment."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Terrible dog movie. Schmaltzy family crap."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Dog tale with death, danger more intense than you expect."
‑ Renee Schonfeld, Common Sense Media
"It deals with challenging issues for the younger crowd in a sensitive manner and is still able to avoid patronizing the parent viewers."
‑ Greg Muskewitz, eFilmCritic.com
