Rescue Dogs is a harmless, cartoon-like movie about a nice guy trying to save his restaurant. Tracy and Charger are a team both in the kitchen and in life, and their adventures yield some positive lessons about loyalty, following your dreams, and taking care of your family. But while the movie certainly good intentions -- all of the animals are rescued (and they all talk, which is sometimes cute and sometimes annoying) -- it's more like a long sitcom episode than a film; even at just 90 minutes, Rescue Dogs feels a little long.

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.
