2010 Guide Analysis: "Beloved web comic turned publishing success, there's a lot of expectation that this live-action incarnation will have to live up to, not to mention a lot more difficulty than you might expect translating something like Kinney's books into a film medium. "Hotel for Dogs" director Freudenthal helms this adaptation which has already drawn a few criticisms for casting too young, but Fox 2000 so far has been more careful than it needs to be with how this film is coming together so don't expect a dud from lack of trying."
