Critic Reviews for All Dogs Go To Heaven

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

The plot meanders and chases its own tail without ever establishing coherent characters.

February 19, 2020 | Full Review…

In "All Dogs Go to Heaven," the possible is the mundane.

February 19, 2020 | Full Review…

A film that feels as under pressure as it's poor protagonist. Whilst looking good, it lacks a well-thought out strategy.

February 19, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

''All Dogs Go to Heaven'' will never be an animated classic, such as ''Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'' or ''Bambi,'' but it is enjoyable entertainment for the entire family.

June 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The plotting, which is best when kept simple in a film for very young viewers, is so unfocused and overcomplicated that it becomes difficult to follow.

May 20, 2003 | Full Review…

Reynolds surely has a bone to pick with his woofish alter ego, who has all the actor's swagger but little of his diffident charm.

Audience Reviews for All Dogs Go To Heaven

I didn't like this movie when I was a kid, mostly because I didn't like dog movies, but maybe I'd watch it again sometime if it was on TV to see if I still think it's a bad movie.

I LOVED this movie as a kid. In a re watch, um, is this supposed to be a kid's movie? Cause there is no way in hell it is. Subjects include: drinking, smoking, gambling and murder! But still, I never minded it as a kid, so more power to Don Bluth for that. So beautiful and endearing.

All Dogs Go To Heaven is a sure kids classic adventure! By the time it ends, I want it to be just beginning. Not perfect, but brilliant!
