Storyline Heading
A lonely young girl adopts an orphaned dog, Winn-Dixie (so named for the supermarket where she found him), who helps her makes friends in the small Florida town. The bond between the girl and her special companion brings together the townspeople, and helps heal her own troubled relationship with her father.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a squeaky-clean, fairly slow-moving drama centering on a girl and a dog, aimed at children and family audiences. There are numerous humorous moments, however, generally involving the dog and other animals.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average All without doubt sweet and warm-hearted, but there is another film with a similar story that is boundlessly better, and that is 'My Dog Skip' (2000).

USA Today Full Review
Good Though it worked as a literary device, the film's emphasis on the leftover candies that "taste like sadness" feels a bit forced and undercuts the movie's original, quirky moments. Still, Winn-Dixie is a welcome relief: a whimsical family film about longing and belonging told with gentle humanity.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 139 moviegoer opinions. Excellent Opinions! Children and parents LOVED WINN DIXIE! It's unusual for adults to give a kids movie such a high percentage of "Excellent" and "Fantastic" opinions. This tells me WINN DIXIE IS NOT JUST A KIDS MOVIE. It's a great movie the entire family will enjoy. Don't miss "Because of Winn Dixie."
