Enzo, a family dog with a near-human soul and a philosopher's mind, evaluates his life through the lessons learned by his human owner, the race-car driver Denny Swift.
"It’s hard to wrap your head around the demented logic that spawned a film as crazily unwieldy as this. People like winsome golden retriever pups is presumably the thinking here."
"At first glance, the feeble tear-jerker “The Art of Racing in the Rain” seems to be a movie made for dog lovers. It is told from the perspective of a dog, a beautiful if inexpressive golden retriever named Enzo."
" There comes a time in any critic’s life when you have to suppress whatever footling objections you have had, and salute the Kevin Costneraissance. You have to bow down to the pure demonic inspiration of creating a sentimental live-action family film about a lovable golden retriever, whose grouchy inner monologue is voiced by none other than Kevin Costner."
