Critic Consensus: Its pugnacious protagonist is certainly adorable, but the thoroughly formulaic Patrick will only give paws to the most pup-obsessed film fans.

Critic Reviews for Patrick
Though the family-friendly comedy has all the good intentions of a motivational puppy poster, it unfortunately also has the same level of intelligence and plot.
A film has to have something going for it, like a plot, instead of just relying on an adorable animal.
Though the narrative tends to be a touch too simplistic for most grown-ups, and lacks enough riotous dog action for the little ones, there's enough bite to make things worthwhile for those who just want to enjoy a sweet, wholesome dog movie.
Patrick, a perfectly agreeable kids' film about a pugnacious pug, is an unusual and welcome find in the summer schedule.
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.
