Rating: 3/4 -- A Boy and His Dog has won a cult following of its own for its offbeat, sardonic look into the future. Full Review
TV Guide
Jun 6, 2007
Rating: 2.5/5 -- The good ideas are marred by awkwardness; the terrible ideas are redeemed somewhat by being, at least, unpredictable. Full Review
New York Times

Rating: B -- If it's weirdness that you're after, this cult film goes the whole nine yards. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Oct 10, 2013
In spite of some clever ideas and a few well-wrought images, it seems too schematic and its satire too blunt. Full Review
Chicago Reader
Jun 6, 2007
Rating: 2/4 -- The savage wasteland is believably captured, but a so-so movie completely goes off the rails once the action moves to an underground society. Full Review
Creative Loafing
Aug 17, 2013
Jones' debut as a director nevertheless has a distinctive tang, as affably unprincipled as the series of villains he played for Sam Peckinpah. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- It's got a unique... well, I was about to say charm, but the movie's last scene doesn't quite let me get away with that. Full Review

Product Description:

Vic (Don Johnson), survivor of atomic holocaust, wanders hungrily across the bleak desert landscape in search of cans of food buried deep in radioactive ash. His telepathic dog, Blood (Tim McIntire) depends on Vic for food, but Vic needs Blood to find him something much more scarce: female companionship. The bedraggled duo eventually discover an underground society of survivors, called "Down Under," where they have reproduced the look of pre-apocalypse Americana but with frighteningly totalitarian politics. A cult black comedy based on the novella by Harlan Ellison.
