Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Every single component in Dog Gone was stolen, copied, or otherwise purloined from another, better movie. Although Luke Benward does a decent job of embodying the good-hearted Owen, the rest of the cast is as lackluster as the script. Even younger kids will know the difference between the boisterous fun of Home Alone and the plodding desperation of this lesser knockoff.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
