QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A dog accompanies American soldiers as they travel to France to fight the Germans in WWI.
PLOT:
It's 1917 and America has recently enteredWWI, and thus many young men are training all across the country for deployment. That includes Robert Conroy (voice of LOGAN LERMAN) who's stationed in New Haven, Connecticut alongside the likes of Olsen (voice of JORDAN BECK), Schroeder (voice of JIM PHARR) and other young men under the command of Sgt. Cashburn (voice of JASON EZZELL).

When Robert ends up tossing a cookie to a stray terrier during a military march, he unexpectedly finds himself a companion, and seeing how well-trained the dog is -- including the ability to salute with his paw -- both Cashburn and later Colonel Ty (JIM PHARR) allow the dog -- now named Stubby -- to stay with the infantry regiment.

When they're shipped out for France, Robert doesn't expect to see Stubby again, but the dog manages to free himself, get to the shipyard, and board the ship. He ends up joining the young men in trench warfare in early 1918 and finds another supporter in French chef turned soldier Gaston Baptiste (voice of GERARD DEPARDIEU) who also becomes Robert's close friend.

As the war rages on, Stubby helps out the troops in numerous ways, all as recounted after the fact by Robert's never seen but occasionally heard sister, Margaret (voice of HELENA BONHAM CARTER), who learned of the dog's exploits via letters from her brother.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
The dog angle and the fact that the film is computer-animated might draw in some younger kids.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For war action and some thematic elements.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
