Just watched this movie and it was VERY enjoyable. Somethings were kind of left open ended at the end but nothing that kills the story.

Neither Fish Nor Fowl
R. Schultz | Chicago | 06/12/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is a bland movie that might have served its purpose as an after-school TV program. But it doesn't make it as a feature film out on DVD. I had hoped it might add a few updated insights into the drama of veterinary practice, since it's been some decades since the "All Creatures Great and Small" series first aired.

But "Animal Clinic" doesn't bring anything new to the operating table. It is formulaic. A struggling independent clinic is threatened with closure. There's a crusty veteran veterinarian running the clinic and a newbie who has to overcome his colleagues' doubts about his abilities.

Furthermore, the movie was obviously shot on low budget. None of the operations look the least bit real. For each procedure, we just see a draped form with a bit of fur protruding and some speckles and gouts of what is supposedly blood.

Mike Farrell, who plays the presiding Doctor, again leans over the operating table as he did for many seasons in "MASH." But he doesn't deliver any incisive back comedy here. Nor is there any of the gentler humor of idiosyncrasy or the really educational specification of disease symptoms that characterized the "Creatures Great and Small" episodes. So this movie is neither fish nor fowl.

If you want to experience the drama of being a veterinarian, it is still by far best to check out Herriot's classic series. Or better yet, read James Herriot's books.
Great family & animal film from creators of AIR BUD
E. Parkinson | Los Angeles, CA | 02/04/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First saw this film on ANIMAL PLANET television, watching with a young niece and nephew. They loved the film and wanted a copy on DVD, so we watched for the release. I didn't realize at first, but we discovered that some of the creators of the enchanting "AIR BUD" series were responsible for ANIMAL CLINIC, which explains a lot about why this is such an enjoyable film. Great cast (lots of recognized faces, such as Bruce Davison from the "Spiderman" films, or Mike Farrell from "MASH"). Really a great movie to add to your collection if you like family films, animal films, Disney or Pixar style entertainment themes."
