      Deborah Ross The Spectator A tender and exquisite animation about one man and his dog which gets as close to what it is to love dogs as I've ever encountered. Aug 30, 2018 Full Review Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) Affably voiced by Christopher Plummer, Ackerley is at once enormously affectionate and beadily observan, while the clever graphic style marks the switch between straightforward narration and surreal doggy reverie. Rated: 3/5 May 6, 2011 Full Review David Sexton London Evening Standard In truth, it's boring. Rated: 2/5 May 6, 2011 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) An emotive story of love between Ackerley and his dog Tulip. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 9, 2022 Full Review Mattie Lucas From the Front Row This is no typical "boy and his dog" movie, this is a joyous and warmhearted work of art. Rated: 3/4 Aug 5, 2019 Full Review Cathleen Schine The New York Review of Books Like the book, the film is fiercely intelligent, funny, tender, and delightfully scatological. It is so thoroughly and naturally a film for adults that it makes live-action movies seem almost childish in comparison. Nov 5, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      andres s Interesting art style. I can't tell whether or not I like it. Very loose lines and messy. Jeez this dog is way too high maintenance and too much to handle. But I'm glad she found an owner who loves her. The way the characters are animated and the way they move throw me off. It looks weird. I honestly couldn't get into this movie. I don't really care about a dog and it's relationship with it's owner, especially if it's an animation and the animation and art looks crappy. Didn't really get my attention and I pretty much fell asleep to it. Sorry Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member very sympathetic portrayal of a man's empathy for his dog. Loved the vet. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member dreamy, just as magical as the book! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member amazing animated documentary. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Singular in style and execution, My Dog Tuplip, with its bracingly abrupt yet unequivocally poetic dialogue, draws many parallels between the seemingly natural activities dogs engage in and the cruel way of the human world. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review nilufer e It was one of the most entertaining animations I've ever watched. The drawings reminded me of "The Triplets of Belleville" but this was funnier and cute. Gotta read J.R.Ackerley now! Oh and the voice acting of Christopher Plummer is superb!
