July 5, 2018
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.

A high-concept family comedy that manages to avoid being taken for the runt of the litter, even if it doesn't really bring anything fresh and different to the arena.
May 17, 2018
A panting, poorly trained entry in the live-action/talking animal genre that for once makes viewers long for the candy-colored, half-witted professionalism of third-tier Pixar-knockoff animation.

Sometimes a rewarding movie theater experience comes from a simple film that doesn't promise more than it can deliver. "Show Dogs" promises talking dogs who fight crime. It delivers.
