Computer-Animated Action/Comedy: An underdog canine teams up with a reluctant trainer to save a village of cats.

Like all other cat-only villages, Kakamucho has a samurai to protect it from outsiders. Unfortunately for the resident felines, theirs has just run away in the face of an onslaught of ninjas sent by the villainous Ika Chu (voice of RICKY GERVAIS). Not only does he want to wipe away the village that he views as an eyesore for his palace, but he's also eager one day to replace the supreme leader, Shogun (voice of MEL BROOKS), who's set to visit him in a week.

When Shogun orders Ika Chu to find a replacement samurai for the village, he decides that his inexperienced, samurai wannabe prisoner, Hank (voice of MICHAEL CERA), will be perfect for the job. And that's mainly because Hank's a dog, something that doesn't sit well with the villagers upon his arrival, including young Emiko (voice of KYLIE KUIOKA) who envisions herself as a samurai.

But with the reluctant help and training of washed-up former samurai Jimbo (voice of SAMUEL L. JACKSON), Hank begins to learn the skills for the role, and eventually helps defeat a gargantuan opponent, Sumo (voice of DJIMON HOUNSOU). His newfound over-confidence, however, doesn't sit well with Jimbo, all of which means Ika Chu and his dimwitted assistant, Ohga (voice of GEORGE TAKEI), might just get their wish to rid his land of Kakamucho once and for all.

If they enjoy computer-animated action-comedies featuring talking animals, they probably will.
For action, violence, rude and suggestive humor, and some language.

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!!!
