Synopsis

Max (voice of Ludacris), an undercover Rottweiler police dog, is working on a kidnapping case in which a baby panda was stolen. It's believed a dog show being held in Las Vegas is being used as cover for animal smuggling.

Although Max is used to working alone, he's assigned a human partner, Frank (Will Arnett). The two disagree on almost everything, but when it's decided Max has to pose as a show dog in order to get the inside scoop at the show, Frank has fun bathing and primping the macho dog for his disguise.

  • 1 star "Why does a children's movie have to focus on a show dog having to be ok with having it's privates touched. It is NOT age appropriate, and it teaches kids to let people touch their privates. I will join the BOTCOTT against this movie."
  • 1 star "Disgusting movie. Not for kids!"
  • 1 star "The National Center on Sexual Exploitation: The movie Show Dogs sends a troubling message that grooms children for sexual abuse. It contains multiple scenes where a dog character must have its private parts inspected, in the course of which the dog is uncomfortable and wants to stop but is told to go to a ‘zen place.’ The dog is rewarded with advancing to the final round of the dog show after passing this barrier. Disturbingly, these are similar tactics child abusers use when grooming children—telling them to pretend they are somewhere else, and that they will get a reward for withstanding their discomfort."
