A no-holes-barred, in-your-face, politically correct, shamefully dogmatic [get it!], more cheese than in a cheese factory, kid's pooch film...complete with one of the worst voice-overs ever to disgrace an anthropomorphic film. Yes, this pooch thinks in English!
As for the blatant PC box-ticking...it's everywhere and will probably go way above the intended audience's little heads...or, are they [the filmmakers] being sneaky and - directly - preaching to the parents? This 'family' film is so condescending...it will make your toes curl, joints ache, head spin!
Do same-sex relationships need to be featured in absolutely everything? It would seem they do...bearing in mind, there is such a thing called overkill! Profusion can - and does - breed contempt...especially when it is unexpected and/or unwarranted.
It all depends where you stand...if you think that pre-high-school kids should be taught [in kindergarten and elementary] about LGBT relationships, all is well and dandy...it's just one more example of how 'education systems' are taking more [responsibility] away from the parents. High school is a different kettle of fish...yes, in this arena, preparing for adulthood, they should be taught about LGBT identity and issues.
There is a time and a place...for everything...
Let the kids have their childhoods without unnecessary clutter...if they are curious, let them ask. Let their parents answer...it's part of the bonding process. The last thing a parent needs when taking their kids to the cinema is having 'an agenda' rammed down their involuntary throats. The 'nanny state' is a dangerous reality...'nanny cinema' is a form of propaganda...together, they subvert the choice of the people!
Who would have 'thunked' it!!! A subversive pooch movie! Perhaps...we 'over-thunked' it!!! Still...a terrible film.
