When I wrote about my daughter wanting/needing to see "Hotel for Dogs" I truly forgot to give a thumbs up or a thumbs down. It definitely gets a HUGE THUMBS UP from me. At one point in the movie there is a comment made like this, "We are in deep poo-poo" (and you have to know the scene as they really were IN poo-poo). In our modern world it is rare that media of any sort passes up the opportunity to add dirty words to a movie. This is a perfect example of a time when most movies would have had a "four letter word" in the script! That alone sold me on this movie. It is totally safe to take your kids to and the only thing I can think to mention is that two teens share a kiss near the end of movie.
Now, honestly ... Was it the best movie ever? In my daughter's eyes.... possibly. Mine... not sure. I know it is about dogs, but there is much more to the story and it made me want to adopt some kids!!! Without saying more and ruining the movie for you it really is deeper than you expect and not just a comedy about dogs!! Go see it and take the family!!
