DC League of Super-Pets SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A man proposes to a woman, they hug and kiss, and she accepts. A man and a woman lean toward each other to kiss and a dog gets between them and interrupts them several times. Two women flirt in a park. A turtle flirts with a stuffed animal cat clinging to the inside window of a car.
 A dog describes how a man will try to flirt with a woman unsuccessfully. A turtle says that it has a date with two firefighters’ helmets.
 An infant boy is shown wearing only a diaper and his bare chest, abdomen, back and legs are seen. Part of a turtle’s shell falls off and we see what looks like underwear.

DC League of Super-Pets VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – A man and a woman place their infant boy in a transport capsule as their planet erupts in flames and a puppy jumps into the capsule with the boy just as it closes. A giant meteor is held in a tractor beam over a city and when it falls toward the ground, people run screaming; it falls toward a woman holding her infant but it is stopped before hitting them.
 A flashback shows a toddler walking toward the top of a flight of stairs and a puppy grabs her arm to keep her from falling; when her parents see bloody bite marks on the child’s arm, they send the puppy to a shelter, thinking that he bit the child. A superhero is powerless and pinned to a statue by a strand of Kryptonite.
 Several super powered animals break into a prison and tear robot guards apart. A dog is struck in the head with a pan and is knocked out. A man and a dog pull an alien robot apart by the arms. A dog tries to fly but is unable to, he falls to the ground hard and stumbles into a street where he is struck by a car and thrown into a pile of garbage; when the dog tries to walk later we hear a crack (like his leg breaks) and we see him later with a bruised eye and scuffed up fur.
 Several superheroes are launched in a rocket that we are told will explode; a dog flies to the sun to retrieve power to destroy a supervillain and we are told that this will kill the dog (it does not). Several superheroes fight with a man and a woman trying to take a meteor away from Earth’s atmosphere; a woman shooting a weapon at the superheroes is blasted by a superhero’s gun (we do not see injuries), and another superhero punches a man hard in the face knocking him to the ground. A superhero is surrounded by many guinea pigs with a variety of superpowers and they fight: one punches the superhero in the stomach and he falls to the ground, and another superhero wraps a guinea pig in a glowing lasso and others attack her. Super powered animals fly toward a rocket, one cuts open a hole to release superheroes held inside, and they plummet to the ground and land on the belly of a giant pig. A helicopter is shot midair and it spins out of control as a woman inside is thrown around (the helicopter is caught before it crashes). A dog is thrown and falls toward a pointed sculpture (he is not impaled). A guinea pig in a shelter devises a device that allows it to harness a piece of a meteor that gives the animals superpowers. A jet with several super powered animals inside it is shot out of the sky and crashes to the ground (the animals seem unharmed). Various super powered animals fight with many super powered guinea pigs and we see a lot of property damage.
 A getaway van speeds through a city’s streets with police cars chasing it; one police vehicle crashes in the background as a dog flies next to the van, lifts it off the ground and a man cuts a hole in the side of the vehicle dumping stolen money onto the ground. A guinea pig wraps rebar around a dog’s throat and squeezes, trying to choke him. A guinea pig absorbs shards of a shattered crystal that give it superpowers and she grows to be enormous and glows. A man and a dog link their arms to stretch across a broken train track as a train approaches.
 An infant boy cries in a capsule as it flies through space and a puppy licks his tears and snuggles with him to calm him. A dog pulls a tree out of the ground and holds it in his mouth. People on a city street run and scream when a super powered guinea pig causes destruction. A dog in a cage in a rescue shelter unlocks the cage door, climbs out of a window, falls in a pile of garbage in an alley and slams into a dog on the sidewalk; the two animals talk, with one telling the other to stop his illegal activity and sprays ice on the other’s paws to keep him from running away until a shelter person comes out to retrieve the runaway. A guinea pig releases many other guinea pigs from an animal testing lab. A guinea pig floats in the air, causes things to fly around a room and we see a pet shelter in flames.
 A pig can grow enormous or shrink to small size with its superpowers, a dog acquires super strength, a turtle becomes superfast and a squirrel can shoot lasers from its paws. A guinea pig throws a superhero out a window and he slams into a building, he stumbles and shoots lasers at the guinea pig but misses; he holds the guinea pig by the throat and the pig stabs the superhero with a shard of Kryptonite that causes him to collapse and we see him motionless on the ground being dragged away by the guinea pig. A pig pins a squirrel under it when the pig grows enormous (it’s OK). A dog slams into an invisible jet and rubs his head. We see several superheroes locked in containment cells. A kitten blows up several cars and her tail becomes a large gun that shoots at several other animals. A kitten coughs up grenades (like fur balls) and throws them at other animals blowing things up. A kitten is covered by an overturned dumpster and a grenade explodes inside it; the kitten says she has eight more lives. A guinea pig is dropped into hot-dog water in a street vendor’s cart (she complains).
 A dog imagines biting a woman’s ankle and throwing her far away and into a body of water when she comes to have a date with his companion. A dog becomes sad when he imagines being replaced by a woman in a man’s life. A dog says that he is a man’s “ride or die.” A giant glowing dog charges toward several animals and says, “I ate the FedEx guy.” A dog says, “I bit the FedEx guy the other day.” Several animals in a shelter seem sad when they are not chosen for adoption. When a pet shelter bursts into flames a dog’s tail catches fire (he is not harmed) and a pig trapped in a cage says, “I smell bacon,” and asks “Why is my mouth watering?”; all of the animals in the shelter get out unharmed before the building collapses. A dog becomes upset when his companion leaves him at home to go on a date with a woman; the dog snarls and the man tells him, “Bad dog,” and the dog replies, “That was way out of line fella,” and “Bad owner.” The ghost of a dog’s father appears in several scenes to give him advice. A dog tells another character, “I owe you a wuppin.” A kitten says, “I’ll see you in heck.” A man remembers being surrounded by screeching bats as a child. We hear a dog urinating against a fountain. A dog says that he drank two toilet bowls and a bidet. Two dogs sniff sidewalks and the ground to track activity and one gags a few times when he smells something bad. A character says, “I ate a toy dinosaur once.”
 A man in bed snores while sleeping and a dog tries different ways to wake him including barking, hitting him in the face, sitting on his head and holding him in the air upside down. A puppy licks an infant boy’s face and the child falls backward giggling. A dog sneaks a hot dog out of a bun as a man distractedly speaks to a woman. During experiments, a guinea pig loses its fur and we see it hairless for the rest of the movie.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
