Show Dogs

Critics Consensus

Show Dogs may entertain very young viewers, but for anyone else, it threatens the cinematic equivalent of a rolled-up newspaper on the snout.

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

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

  • A half-term "treat" featuring an undercover canine cop called Max (voiced by Ludacris) who has to infiltrate a glamorous Vegas-set dog show to foil a gang of international animal smugglers, it's also tacky, crass, crude and, well, mean.

  • Show Dogs goes out of its way to cause offence, be weird, and not contain a single joke that humans of any age might rationally nod and appreciate.

  • The final reel showdown in a plane hangar is especially feeble.

  • Grown-ups might not roll over for "Show Dogs," but children almost surely will.

Audience Reviews for Show Dogs

  • Jan 01, 2019
    Boasting the worst animal CG I've seen in a theater since Darren Aranofsky's Noah, this obnoxious waste of time, money, effort, and technology could very well possibly be the final nail in the coffin for Will Arnett's big screen career. This would make a great double feature with Gary Busey's Quigley if you hate yourself and are physically incapacitated.
