Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Bailey's Billion$ is a farcical 2005 talking dog movie with some iffy humor. A romantic scene is broken up by the dog urinating on a nearby tree while announcing "Oh sweet relief!" There are also two instances of sexual innuendo, either as voiced by the dog himself, or translated by the dog's owner. Two antagonists pass a flask back and forth. Overall, this is a ludicrous premise wrapped in a formulaic plot, but in the midst of the silliness, characters are shown protesting animal testing in the cosmetics industry, and characters openly discuss the horrors of puppy mills. Even though the puppy mill shown in the movie is presented in a cartoonishly evil manner instead of how it really is, this movie does open the possibilities of discussing weightier matters concerning animal rights and environmental protection.
- Sexual Content

- One of the characters is knocked unconscious with a blow to the back of the head.
- A talking dog says "Crap."
- Social Behavior
- This movie shows through example and discussion the importance of ending puppy mills once and for all. The movie also discusses the importance of ending animal testing in the cosmetics industry, as well as standing up to those who would pollute our environment.
