Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Sherlock: Undercover Dog stars the titular talking canine and a 10-year-old boy, who must solve a kidnapping caper. There are some slapstick pratfalls, a few scenes that show the bad guys punching people, and some infrequent swearing. Otherwise the film is quite tame and suitable for very young viewers.
A single dad flirts with a single mom.
Some slapstick pratfalls, especially a recurring gag about a clumsy waiter who repeatedly drops plates of food. Two bad guys kidnap an undercover cop and leave him tied to a chair. There are some fisticuffs.
Infrequent outbursts, such as "kick butt."
Adults need to learn to trust the wisdom of children, even if what they say sounds crazy or unbelievable. Kids rarely have any motivation to make up wild stories, but they do need to be taken seriously, whether they're talking about a dog that speaks, a kidnapping, or anything else.
