Good cute puppy movie!

Some suspenseful parts that make it scary for little ones though.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (17 ):

It's hard to find fault with scenes of adorable puppies romping in the snow, and the simple story presents enough villains, challenges, and internal conflict to keep kids up to age 12 interested. Slapstick humor, including the requisite fart jokes, will have kids giggling throughout. But the same animal lovers who will enjoy the scenes of the Buddies with their human counterparts may be troubled by the villain's treatment of his sled dogs.

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.
