Is it possible to make a talking animals movie on the cheap? I’ve always assumed the answer is no. A dodgy animated film, sure, or a genre piece with knowingly crude special effects (like Sharknado or Birdemic), perhaps. But an actual bona fide talking animals movie, with real animals and correctly synced mouths? Surely there is no frugal way to do that.

The film's lack of inspiration at every level - technical, narrative and comedic - is so crushing that, save for pre-adolescents, most will consider this a top contender for worst of breed.

Think of it as “Miss Congeniality” for dogs, replete with the sort of slapstick humor, puerile gags and for-adults-only pop-culture references required of such endeavors.

Sometimes a rewarding movie theatre experience comes from a simple film that doesn't promise more than it can deliver. "Show Dogs" promises talking dogs who fight crime. It delivers.

Arnett has the terse air of a man doing anything he can to keep up with his alimony payments...

Packed with forgettable wisecracks, this is a very American brand of children's entertainment, crass and overbearing but harmless.

This nicely modulated film largely avoids the hyper-aggressive jokiness and desperate stabs at relevance that often plague kidpics.

A high-concept family comedy that manages to avoid being taken for the runt of the litter, even if it doesn't really bring anything fresh and different to the arena.

If you came for cute canines you’ll get them, but you’d get more entertainment from an hour of dog videos on YouTube.
