ReviewSource Variety
Review True story of the Edinburgh pooch who watched over his master's grave for 14 years gets a vaguely realistic, but dramatically dull, reworking in "Greyfriars Bobby"...Solid array of Brit character actors plus realistic production and costume design give the movie plenty of flavor. But just as there are few standouts on the acting side -- Cosmo comes over strongest as the sexton, and Lee gives the finale some emotional clout...For all its back lot look and colorful Scots, Disney's version holds up very well today due to a well constructed script. In contrast, this new version ambles along in a chummy, very British way but lacks warmth and any strong character hooks...For all its claims to greater authenticity, this version was almost entirely shot in nearby Stirling, whose castle grounds double convincingly for Edinburgh's Old Town.

Close-Up Film ...relying on good writing and acting, this is a delightful little film, which is funny, touching and never soppy.
