Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Dog Who Saved the Holidays is a family Christmas comedy that relies heavily on recurring flatulence in lieu of actual punch lines. There are some insults ("don't be so thick" and "dummy") as well as mild violence (a mobster makes a verbal threat to cut off the thumbs of some men if they don't commit a burglary for him). There are some cute montages of dogs frolicking and some positive lessons about the importance of family, but fart jokes dominate.
