Energetic 10-year-old Jimmy Warner (Jackson Pace) is forced to say farewell to his beloved German shepherd, Rainy, when his family moves from a quiet town in Louisiana to a pet-prohibited apartment in the Big Apple. But Rainy has other ideas and soon begins an epic journey to join his master. Along the way, Rainy proves via good deeds and amazing feats (such as driving a car through Manhattan) that he's just about the best pal a boy could have.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this ludicrous movie about an unbelievably gifted dog stopping at nothing to reunite with his owner is beyond-silly and is filled with cartoon violence, jokes about flatulence, and a farfetched plotline that may very well unsuspend the disbelief of even the most believing and unskeptical child.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


A girl gets trapped and nearly falls off a bridge. Upon moving to Manhattan, Jimmy is bullied by a gang of young toughs called "The Koolz." Rainy the dog stops a purse thief through the New York City subway system. Besides this, there are car chases, chases on foot, on boat, and by helicopter. One of the characters is accidentally put to sleep when an animal dart is shot at his rear end. All villains are exaggerated and not terribly frightening.


"Damn" is used once. There is some name-calling (i.e. "stupid"). There are also a few instances of animal and human flatulence.

Social Behavior

An argument could be made that this film teaches how love -- between a dog and his boy -- overcomes all...but that's stretching it.


Twizzlers seem to have a remarkably powerful effect on Rainy.
