      Harry H Kasdan at the helm of such a powerful cast, where could one go wrong? Well, someone forgot to bring a script. Freeway, Freeway, where are you Freeway? This, coupled with seemingly pointless characters without any real development is pretty much the extent of the story line. Even the dog lacked enough screen time for us to firm any sort of attachment. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/21/23 Full Review Jonathan M Ignore negative reviews! Enjoy a positive plot!

      Tom Long Detroit News Between the gypsy psychic and the distracting characters, "Darling Companion" loses its way. Rated: C May 18, 2012 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle A listless excursion into the luxurious problems of rich, white people. Rated: 2.5/5 May 18, 2012 Full Review Calvin Wilson St. Louis Post-Dispatch [It] has a fine cast, but doesn't seem to have much to say other than lamenting the unfairness of getting old. Rated: 2/4 May 18, 2012 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com The simple truth is there's not much reason to see a film that is largely devoid of heart and completely devoid of the humor it so richly deserves. Rated: 2.0/4.0 Sep 5, 2020 Full Review Felicia Feaster Charleston City Paper But in the end, you don't have to be a tea-leaf reader to see Darling Companion's wrap-up from a mile away.
