Not kid appropriate

the first scene shows the main character in a bikini and then that is all we saw and then we turned it off.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

There's simply nothing to recommend in this predictable, corny, and amateurish film; even the talking-dog performances are subpar. Low-budget doesn't have to mean low-quality, but in the case of PawParazzi, there's not a hint of artfulness in the writing, direction, or performances. Jay Mohr shows up as a reality TV personality in intercut sequences that are excruciatingly inept. Those scenes are matched hand-in-hand with the two baddies whose excessive theatrics aren't helped by a director who should have known better. There are far better options for family viewing.

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.
