Plot Summary

Hotel For Dogs is a funny, heartwarming and inspiring animal adventure that shows how far love and imagination can take you. When 16-year old, Andi (Roberts), and her younger brother Bruce (Austin) find themselves in a foster home with a strict "no pets" policy, they must use their quick wit to find a new home for their dog, Friday. When they stumble into an abandoned hotel, they realize they can transform it into the perfect place for Friday- as well as all the strays in the city. What began as a crusade to save one dog becomes a high stakes adventure as everyone around them starts to wonder- who let the dogs in?

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The human dramas are less involving [than the dogs'], and a pair of teen romances feel like something on the Disney Channel. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: All in all it's a very pleasant way to spend the afternoon with a bunch of kids. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: It's no great shakes as a film, but its combination of mild comedy, slapstick, pathos, many photogenic canines and a positive message will make it irresistible to families. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Friendly, formulaic, completely harmless. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Jul 7, 2010
