About the Movie

In DARLING COMPANION, Beth (Diane Keaton) saves a bedraggled lost dog from the side of the freeway on a wintry day in Denver. Struggling with her distracted, self-involved husband Joseph (Kevin Kline) and an empty nest at home, Beth forms a special bond with the rescued animal. When Joseph loses the dog after a wedding at their vacation home in the Rockies, the distraught Beth enlists the help of the few remaining guests and a mysterious young woman (Ayelet Zurer) in a frantic search. Each member of the search party is affected by the adventure, which takes them in unexpected directions – comic, harrowing, sometimes deeply emotional and ultimately towards love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: How much more fulfilling it would have been to spend those hundred-odd minutes chasing a squirrel, taking a nap or disemboweling a stuffed animal on the living room rug. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Apr 19, 2012

Rotten: The dog had the right idea. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, May 4, 2012

Rotten: "Darling Companion'' doesn't amount to much more than a fairly painless way for the AARP set to spend an hour and a half watching a movie with stars their own age. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Apr 20, 2012

Rotten: Lawrence Kasdan's fitfully amusing comedy-drama starring Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Apr 27, 2012

bland is good sometimes

Aw c,mon people...sometimes you just need bland and syrupy and hoaky and schmoozie...I liked it

Critcs too hard on the movie

Probably all that sophistication got in the way of movie critics enjoying a simple, charming, feel good movie. Sorry folks, no sex to speak of. It's a slice of very traditional people living life. That's probably what killed it.

I almost think the critics viewed a different movie.

A dog of a movie!

Disappointing. Drags and makes you wish it would end soon! Dog was the best actor!
