A surprisingly witty and sophisticated spy movie spoof that will tickle adult pet lovers and still capture kids 6 and older with its boy-and- his-dog love story and pet slapstick.

Nell Minow

Plenty of heart and hijinks mixed with litter box humor.

After a while, the film's massive explosions make Swordfish look like a chick flick.
