Rated PG-13 · 103 minutes · 2012

Comedy drama
Writer-director Lawrence Kasdan and a stellar cast including Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline, Richard Jenkins and Sam Shepard get together for a film that starts off cute and then dies on the vine. Keaton plays Beth, who finds a stray dog on the side of the road and adopts it, much to the chagrin of her husband, Joseph (Kline). Joseph eventually comes to like the dog, but loses him while on vacation, turning the movie into a bizarre search-and-rescue film. Yes, this movie is largely about a bunch of people walking around with flashlights and looking for a lost dog. Ayelet Zurer plays a gypsy who shares her premonitions and visions of where the dog might be, and things get dumber from there. A terrible waste of time for a lot of talented people.

Charleston City Paper You'll see Darling Companion's conclusion coming from a mile away In Darling Companion, the assembled First World people's problems involve high cholesterol, emotionally distant husbands, crappy cell phone reception, and lost dogs. by Felicia Feaster 06/06/2012
Indy Week A Colorado dog goes missing in Lawrence Kasdan's Darling Companion I won't spoil it for you on whether or not Freeway eventually reunites with this clan. I will say, either way, the dog deserves better. by Craig D. Lindsey 05/30/2012
