Critic Reviews of "A Boy and His Dog"Chicago ReaderJune 05, 2007
In spite of some clever ideas and a few well-wrought images, it seems too schematic and its satire too blunt.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Jones' debut as a director nevertheless has a distinctive tang, as affably unprincipled as the series of villains he played for Sam Peckinpah.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
It's got a unique... well, I was about to say charm, but the movie's last scene doesn't quite let me get away with that.New York TimesMay 21, 2003
The good ideas are marred by awkwardness; the terrible ideas are redeemed somewhat by being, at least, unpredictable.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsOctober 10, 2013
If it's weirdness that you're after, this cult film goes the whole nine yards.TV GuideJune 05, 2007
A Boy and His Dog has won a cult following of its own for its offbeat, sardonic look into the future.DVDLaserOctober 14, 2004
Set on a desert landscape a while after a nuclear holocaust, the film is about a young man, played by Don Johnson, who has a telepathic bond with a dog, the latter basically being the smarter of the two. He helps the dog find food and the dog helps him snApollo GuideJuly 02, 2004
Despite memorable main characters, a half-decent take on an overused premise, and unforgettable scenes, the film's attitude and political stance haven't aged with grace.Lawrence Journal-WorldApril 09, 2004
"nifty little cult flick"Worcester Telegram & GazetteJanuary 30, 2004
(No quote available.)Slant MagazineDecember 11, 2003
Jones's cameo during an open-air movie theater sequence is by far the most cinematic moment of this 1975 cult classic for boys who hate women.
