It's a miracle! A good, clean, cute, current family-friendly movie. My boys (ages 5 and 8) loved it. Other than the word "stupid" throw in a couple of times and one joke about poop, it was completely clean. I have to remind myself that even Captain Hook called Peter Pan an "idiot" - so those words have been around in Disney movies a long time. Underdog is smitten for Polly (a cute spaniel!), but the "romance" part of a kids movie is not distracting and the female part of the romance story (a dog!) is not a princess in a tight corset with cleavage falling out. As in the old-time cartoons, Underdog likes to talk in rhyme and my kids thought it was hilarious. "Don't you worry, Underdog is furry!" And yes, a positive message woven in about not quitting, not giving up, and being a loving family. Big thumbs up if you're looking for something truly family friendly.
