Movie Info

Olive (Alicia Silverstone) is a top doctor with high hopes of starting a family, but her out-of-work husband, Clay (Ryan Kwanten), is too busy concentrating on his dream to be a big league hockey star. On the brink of divorce, the couple can't agree on who will take custody of their beloved dog, Wesley. Things go from bad to worse as they battle it out in court. Resorting to cheap tactics and dirty tricks, Olive and Clay pull out all the stops to win back Wesley, with hilariously disastrous consequences.

Critic Reviews for Who Gets the Dog?

All Critics (3)

This formulaic, straight-as-the-crow-flies romantic comedy can feel plodding and downright dull at times....

January 16, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Predictable romcom has some mild cursing, drug reference.

August 8, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A surprisingly amusing, bright, feather-light romantic comedy.

Audience Reviews for Who Gets the Dog?


Cute little rom com that covers my favorite subject, dogs. I'm super bias when it comes to dog films and this is no exception. The film is heavily flawed but the dynamic duo make this film work. Funny film with a great cast, I hope to see these guys in a lot more films. This was an odd choice to watch but I'm no regretting by any means.
