Review:

Talk about a bait and switch. The trailer for this movie was basically just the first few minutes which ended up not being an accurate depiction of what the entire film would be about. So glad that I didn’t take my daughter to see this or that we didn’t purchase it someone else did.

Instead of being more of the animals doing silly ridiculous things we got to watch a whiny dog that didn’t want to share his owner come to grips with the fact that he was no longer an only child. It wasn’t funny and neither of the main dogs was likeable.

The side story of the friends trying to find them was really the only entertaining part but it wasn’t enough to change my opinion of the movie.

At least my daughter (3) seemed to like it.

2/5
