Show Dogs (2018)



Critic Consensus: Show Dogs may entertain very young viewers, but for anyone else, it threatens the cinematic equivalent of a rolled-up newspaper on the snout.

Critic Reviews for Show Dogs

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (25)

It's a really, really lame, limp movie that isn't funny.

August 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Packed with forgettable wisecracks, this is a very American brand of children's entertainment, crass and overbearing but harmless.

July 5, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

There are lots of comic moments at this dog show. Part of the humour is the precise reflection of canine behaviour.

June 29, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The fluff factor may sell this mutt movie to smaller viewers, but it has no business in the winner's circle.

May 30, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It all comes back to the fact that Show Dogs is a movie for children that seems interested in pushing a plot that normalizes unwanted sexual touching.

Arnett has the terse air of a man doing anything he can to keep up with his alimony payments...

Audience Reviews for Show Dogs

Boasting the worst animal CG I've seen in a theater since Darren Aranofsky's Noah, this obnoxious waste of time, money, effort, and technology could very well possibly be the final nail in the coffin for Will Arnett's big screen career. This would make a great double feature with Gary Busey's Quigley if you hate yourself and are physically incapacitated.
