Hollywood News also gave the film a glowing review writing:
This film is a lovely tribute to the impact that a dog can have on your life. To be sure, the cuteness of the pug goes a long way, but the overall tone is so charming that a smile ends up on your face for the vast majority of the running time.
Directed by Mandie Fletcher, who also is behind Absolutely Fabulous, Blackadder and Only Fools and Horses, the film has the Patrick Pug Movie tagline as “PUG..ACTUALLY”, a play on the Richard Curtis romantic comedy Love Actually!
