Don't Let The Title Fool You-Not For Kids

The dog was cute enough. But that's about it for kids (especially younger ones). The only other positive thing was that UT had very little foul language. What makes it not family friendly: A bedroom scene with the main human character & his love interest. They didn't actually sleep together. But they talk about it. It shows the man getting out of bed without a shirt & with just boxers on. The lady is standing in the room with a robe on. He wakes up & asks her if they slept together. She says no. Even though it didn't show them participating in sexual activity, I felt that it was not needed in this movie. And as a parent, it puts me in a situation to have to explain things to my kid. And she's not ready (let alone that this man & woman weren't married). We fast forward past this scene. And we started watching where the dog was adopted by another family (long story how this happened). And my daughter noticed that there was something strange about the Poodle (2nd dog). She opted to quit watching as it was freaking her out (She is 9.5 years old). And I do agree that this will scare some children.After this, I quit watching it too. .
