Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Fortunately, the bad stereotypes and crass humor of its precursor, Pup, are long gone; unfortunately, it's slow-paced and feels more like a collection of TV episodes than a movie with a story to tell. The content in Pup 2 No Good is fine for little kids, but the random jumps in plot and overly formal messages and morals ("It's not necessary to flee to find freedom") make kids' attention likely to wander early and often. The oddball characters are engaging in short bursts, but as the plot, or lack of it, drags on, they just become repetitive. It's not the worst movie out there, but with so many better choices available, it's not particularly worthwhile 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.
