Critic Reviews of "Benji"VarietyMarch 18, 2018
Without wandering far from the tried-and-true formula, director Brandon Camp (son of "Benji" creator Joe Camp) brings a measure of style and competence to the project that the franchise has never seen.RogerEbert.comMarch 16, 2018
This 2018 release feels like it arrived fresh from 1974, and that is what makes it a delight.Los Angeles TimesMarch 15, 2018
Pretty underwhelming, a perfunctory kids-and-their-dog caper that despite running less than 90 minutes feels stretched to its limits.Associated PressMarch 14, 2018
For those looking for the most benign family-friendly entertainment, the nostalgic and corny "Benji" will do the trick.AV ClubMarch 13, 2018
This is all fairly dreary, in keeping with the franchise's long-running aversion to comedy and consistent fixation on bad familial vibes.Blu-ray.comMarch 21, 2018
Perhaps nostalgia is enough to engage, but "Benji" doesn't seem vital enough to revisit, especially when The Camp Corporation has nothing new to offer.Movie NationMarch 20, 2018
A bit dark, for parents who like to spare their kids tears. But that dog never lets us down when it comes to pre-tween entertainment.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsMarch 16, 2018
Too bad there's no Oscar for Best Animal Performance of the Year. Benji would win hands -- er paws -- down.Times-PicayuneMarch 13, 2018
It is cute without seeming desperate, nostalgic without feeling dated, values-based without being preachy, and sweet without being (too) cloying.
