If you’ve been online at all during the last week or so you’ve no doubt read about the controversy surrounding the new movie ‘Show Dogs.’ As a parent taking my kids to the movies is one of my favourite things to do. I like to go with my kids at least once a month. As my kids have gotten older it’s been a struggle to find movies that everyone likes.
My kids range in age from 10 – 16 so it’s not always easy to please everyone. We’ve also slowly gotten out of the ‘animated movie’ phase. My kids are big fans of superhero movies so those are always a big hit. But it’s also nice when there’s a family friendly movie that isn’t animated that we can all go see.
Some of you may have heard of the movie Show Dogs that opened in theaters last week. The plot of the movie basically revolves around a police dog who goes undercover as a show dog at a prestigious dog show to infiltrate a kidnapping ring. Sounds like pretty fun family fare, right? Unfortunately it really wasn’t.
