Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What makes "Lassie" work is the craftsmanship and thoughtfulness that director Petrie and his creative team bring to the task."
‑ Steven Gaydos, Variety
"It's somehow reassuring, these days, to see a movie where there's no problem Lassie can't solve."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It's Lassie, innit? Gold."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"The plot stays simple and predictable through out the entire movie, but you never mind because it is so life affirming."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Writer-director Charles Sturridge doesn't mess with the Lassie formula%u2014he provides plenty of dog-porn shots of the collie bounding through scenery in slow motion%u2014but the overqualified cast puts the film over the top."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"For better or worse, "Lassie" is as safe and square as the TV show of yesteryear."
‑ Kevin McManus, Washington Post
"One of the finest incarnations of the series.....a warm and fuzzy experience"
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat
"If you don't place too many demands on it, Lassie will while away your time pleasantly. But, ultimately this pup is all bark and no bite."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"A stubbornly sweet, picturesque children's film ..."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"The story may be predictable, ham-fisted and saccharine, but that's why kids (and softhearted parents) will like it."
‑ Richard Leiby, Washington Post
"In all, pretty good family fare."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
