Show Dogs

Talking dogs signify a bad movie in my opinion, but I didn’t dislike Show Dogs as much as I anticipated. The story centers on Max, a rather undisciplined police dog who enters a dog show to track a criminal peddling exotic animals. Like another movie based on that premise, much of the comedy involves the rough cop awkwardly trying to blend in with the prissy contestants in order to maintain undercover access to all areas of the dog show. This movie doesn’t pull off that premise nearly as well as the other did; the comedy was easy to anticipate and therefore not very funny. However, I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit that as a dog lover, I found myself more drawn into the plot than I expected. Although it is rated PG, I thought the movie was family-friendly. Tender hearts will appreciate that none of the humor involved an animal getting hurt. Overall rating: C
