Mix... genital obsession with bad CGI, unrelenting references to Lego Batman, and a general sense of malaise, and you have a pretty complete picture of what Show Dogs has to offer.

If the filmmakers had taken an even slightly sophisticated approach, this wacky movie might have been a minor classic.

Embarrassingly bad CGI; pratfalls; genital humor; denigration of cat ladies; horrible clichés and stereotypes. This is the cinematic equivalent of stepping in dog poop. You know, for kids!

The good news for screenwriters Max Botkin and Marc Hyman is they got a screen credit out of this. The bad news is it was with this movie.

Howlingly bad and ill-suited for kids (or anyone wanting to preserve brain cells). (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Sexual Material etc. - also Available)

Grown-ups might not roll over for "Show Dogs," but children almost surely will.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Grown-ups will find it painful to watch a clearly embarrassed Arnett go through the motions, muttering his lines as he internally wonders why he never became the next Kevin Costner.

May 18, 2018
Talking-animal buddy comedy nothing to bark about.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's true that technology has come a long way since Tex Avery first added animated mouths to real-life animals, but what good is scientific know-how without the imagination needed to power it?

Director Raja Gosnell has been here before with "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" and "Scooby-Doo.'' He knows the value of being wittily self-referential and self-aware.
May 18, 2018
With nothing in its supper dish but eye candy, Show Dogs alienates any viewer who wants something more than talking hounds.
Full Review | Original Score: 75/100

Even by the low standards of this type of live-action, family friendly comedy, Show Dogs is especially lame.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4
May 18, 2018
Ho-hum talking-dog flick for children that teaches environmental and rite-of-passage lessons for humans and canine alike.
May 18, 2018
Working from a banal script by Max Botkin and Marc Hyman, director Raja Gosnell has wasted the talents of some incredible dogs and their trainers in a movie that can only be described as mind numbing.

If you seriously need a talking dog movie, go see Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs instead.
May 17, 2018
Simply a bad idea poorly executed, as awful on the canine side as 'Nine Lives' was on the feline.

Make a stand to Hollywood and vote with your wallet: We all deserve a better live-action talking-dog movie than this.

There are some cases where you really can't teach an old dog new tricks.

May 17, 2018
The film's lack of inspiration at every level - technical, narrative and comedic - is so crushing that, save for pre-adolescents, most will consider this a top contender for worst of breed.
