The critical consensus

Heartfelt, well-acted but disappointingly generic road movie from debut director Philip John.

**(*)(*)(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 28/08/2017

A promising but cliched film about two stepbrothers and the manic-pixie-rock-chick who comes between them on a journey from Shetland to Glasgow.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 30/08/2017

Random encounters, narrow escapes and some tough home truths drive a scrappy story that is delivered with considerable charm.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 01/09/2017

Two dissimilar stepbrothers meet a girl on the road in this British comedy that’s short on laughs.

**(*)(*)(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 03/09/2017

Weak attempts at comedy, one-note characterisation and clunky tonal shifts ensure Scottish road movie Moon Dogs is little more than another dispiriting example of the way so many publicly funded British comedies prize wackiness and winsomeness over characters and plotting that feel in any way believable.
