QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: An FBI agent and a canine police officer team up to try to stop an animal smuggling ring.
PLOT:
Max (voice of CHRIS "LUDACRIS" BRIDGES) is a highly regarded canine police officer who prefers to work by himself. While trying to stop a baby panda from being sold in an international animal smuggling ring, he butts heads with Frank (WILL ARNETT), an FBI agent working the same case. Despite their differences, the two are paired together to work on the case where Max will be entered into a prestigious dog show in Vegas with Frank as his handler and where Dante (voice of ALAN CUMMING) is the reigning champion.

While Frank interacts with FBI canine consultant Mattie (NATASHA LYONNE) who's entering her dog, Daisy (voice of JORDIN SPARKS), into the competition, Max enlists the aid of former show champion Philippe (voice of STANLEY TUCCI) and tag-along pug Sprinkles (voice of GABRIEL IGLESIAS) to help him get the lay of the land and how to act in the show, all while scoping out potential suspects, such as Mattie's associate, Gabriel (OMAR CHAPARRO).

With the show getting underway and Max and Frank continuing to butt heads, they try to work together to crack the case, stop the smugglers, and save the baby panda.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a comedy featuring talking dogs, so those drawn to those sorts of films will likely be interested in it.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For suggestive and rude humor, language and some action.

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!!!
