Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Jock the Hero Dog may look like a family friendly comedy for all ages, but its use of rough-edged characters with harsh dispositions and an affection for casual violence are too mature for a very young audience. The movie includes a sad, drawn-out scene where a young dog's mother is killed and mourned, plus several scenes where the main characters are in serious danger. Themes such as perseverance and doing the right thing will ring true for kids mature enough for the rougher stuff.

Sexual Content

Non-sexual nudity involves male characters without shirts on. Two dogs flirt with each other. A baboon blows a dog a kiss.


Film includes pervasive menace and peril for the characters, who frequently speak aggressively and act callously and maliciously. In one drawn-out scene a boy dog watched his mother die and mourns her. Animals are frequently mishandled or abused. Shots are often heard in the distance. Dogs fight; scenes include an eagle flying off with a dog and an attempt to eat him and a man drowning a dog (but the dog is saved). A dead deer is shown with flies swarming on the carcass, but no blood. A man attempts to stab another man with a spear; a shot is fired to distract him. A lion chases a dog and is threatened with a spear. An alligator is stabbed with a spear, then shot. A man is hit over the head with a pan. A wagon is set fire and a dog caged and forced to fight a baboon. A leopard viciously attacks two dogs and is pushed off a cliff.


A dog is called "lazy," a "dirty scavenger" and "worthless."

Social Behavior

Strong messages of friendship, bravery, and perseverance in facing fears, with an emphasis on believing in yourself, not judging a book by its cover, and that what's in your heart matters most.
