What a great cast for an excellent movie (by michaelzstuff)
With a cast like this, how can you go wrong??? Getting involved with all of these relationships was enough to make me like this film but with Keaton and Kline doing what they do best, this was an enjoyable and delightful experience. With four Academy Award winners taking on the leads, not only do you get a great performance, but who doesn't like cute little dog that sends all of the characters out on a hunt to find the lost pet. Okay, it doesn't have any gun shots, muggings or superpowers flying though the air, but it sill have me entertained for an hour and a half. We all get a <more>
chance to see horror films, thriller stories and action movies, but you don't get a chance to see a film like this very often. A must-see for anyone who has a heart.
Fabulous, Loving and Wonderful Movie (by Rosedame)
Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what a sleeper of a fantastic movie.. heartwarming, real, touching, true to life... and it gives meaning to loving animals as much if not more than people....who give us unconditional love, respect, and devotion... unlike our own humans.... but not withstanding, we still need the companionship of our own kind... but it as you will find out, is a much better world with our loving animals to keep us sane, grounded, and happy, It brings out all the emotions we humans have, for better or worse, but real...this wonderful movie makes you feel good about life.. something we all <more>

I don't understand all the hate on most of the reviews I've read. There are no special effects, but there are some heavy hitter stars in this movie, and a pleasing storyline. Of course we all know how it's going to end. But the movie, especially for us Boomers, touches on a lot of subjects that we can relate to when it comes to the aging process. And how society can be in a hurry to move us along. Make room for the younger up and coming. The area where this was filmed, Utah and Telluride, are very familiar to me, and a joy to see. This isn't heavy drama, there is no nudity, <more>
the plot is not too involved. It's a great movie to take your 80 year old mother-in-law to on a Saturday afternoon. That's what we did, and she loved it. So take Grandma to the movies this week. You'll enjoy the movie, and Grandma will appreciate you taking the time to do it. See you at the movies. :
The Kasdan's always seem to write about family relationships and this film is certainly no exception.Diane Keaton pulls out all the stops as the wife of spinal surgeon, Kevin Kline, mature and excellent in the part. She finds a dog on a highway with her daughter, the latter quickly marries the vet they bring the dog to.The film is about human relations among the family. Dianne Wiest is also very good as Kline's sister, with her new boyfriend and son, also a doctor, all attending the daughter's wedding.The film then becomes one of searching for the dog who goes lost. Everyone seems <more>
to reveal their inner selves and it becomes a fascinating character study.
Fine movie, sadly disliked by many for good and bad reasons (by Rodrigo_Amaro)
Of the few releases of the year, "Darling Companion" is perhaps the one that didn't deserve all the hatred is getting. However, let's face it that some of it is quite understandable. This marks the first film of Lawrence Kasdan since "The Dreamcatcher" to some quite a stinker, I don't find it all that much, quite like it and that makes 9 years; the first screenplay by Meg Kasdan since the glorious "Grand Canyon" back in 1991; then there's a great cast united here and they're at a strange level of their abilities and to most viewers the <more>
junction and the lack of more interesting script was the key factor for this being the movie the public weren't expecting. Playing simple and with some predictability, "Darling Companion" is about a housewife Diane Keaton desperate in finding her beloved dog Freeway, lost by her husband Kevin Kline , who doesn't seem to care much about the new member of the family and end up losing the poor animal while talking on the phone. In case you didn't got the name, the dog was found on a freeway almost freezing to death. It all happened after their daughter's wedding with the veterinary who treated of Freeway a year ago. So, these people from the city are now stranded in the countryside looking for the dog with the help of another members of the family Dianne Wiest, Richard Jenkins and a sort of gypsy/psychic Ayelet Zurer who has blurred and foggy visions of Freeway and the place it might have been. The real purpose of the movie is not only finding who's lost but also finding what is lost and that is the human relations between the main couple, always on a verge of the crisis even with the picture of being the perfect family where the husband is too focused on his career as a doctor and the wife is too concerned of being away from her grown up daughters, and of not being loved enough by her man, and now where's the dog, of whom she loves with more enthusiasm than his real partner. More like a couple's retreat kind of flick, this is a very warming project, very light and with some funny moments. It's far more interesting to see this project of life where all the confusion of a relationship is solved during a particular event than seeing some ridiculous romantic comedy that tends to present perfect lives all around. Despite the difference in the way it treats its issues, far from being those corny rom-coms "Darling Companion" isn't all that much of a mature screenplay though. I think it should have more focus on the couple's background rather than seeing Keaton crying for whatever reasons, focus on some of their pre-existent marital problems. It's just too level. And there's a beautiful yet pointless animated sequence involving the dog's point of view that really takes you out of the movie.If the story sounds silly, just see it for the actors. Kline is good, Keaton has one of the most decent films of the past 10 years "The Family Stone" was a disaster next to this and I bet the ratings might be even higher than this but if this worths a real good view is because of Wiest and Jenkins playing an older couple that has many things to teach everyone around. They're so lovable and charming together, and he's hilarious in the movie. And there's an almost wasted appearance by Sam Shepard playing a sick sheriff. But once again, they're not at their greatest level of acting. That's what killed the enjoyment for viewers, they expected too much of a movie that was proposed to give so few.The Kasdan couple worked better with the accidents of life in the outstanding "Grand Canyon". In that, miraculous events in the chaotic and stressful day-by-day routine saved people's lives and showed them new ways to connect with someone in the abyss that separates everything and everyone yet they're so close to each other. In "Longtime Companion" it was all about loving more your animal than the person whom you spend your life with, or care less about the faithful animal for reasons unknown, just thinking about himself. A sign of times represented in both films by the same creators. When did we become so egoistical and stopped looking at what's around us? When did our values become so shrunken? Maybe that's the reason people despised the new Kasdan. I liked but I wanted so much more...8/10
