Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Soccer Dog: European Cup is a 2005 comedy that briefly touches on three sensitive issues: scientific animal testing, the death of a 13-year-old's unmarried mother, and the fact that she never informed his father of the boy's birth. The plot focuses on belated father-son bonding. An adorable, highly intelligent, soccer-playing dog brings them together. Some action takes place in a Scottish pub. Two soccer teams get into a brawl. A dog is kidnapped but safely returned. Brief instances of "s--t" and "f--k" are hinted at but censored; language includes "marble-mouth," "doo-doo," "Yank," "coward," and "dung-smelling." Scottish accents may make it difficult for some kids to understand the dialogue.

Sexual Content


A cliché evil scientist performs experiments on animals, although none is seen. He trains a small dog to viciously attack, and when she bites a man's arm offscreen, we see the rest of the man's body comically writhing in pain. The dog is kidnapped but returned safely. Rival soccer team members get into a punching brawl. A head-butt. Some young bullies are mean to Zach.


"Marble-mouth," "doo-doo," "Yank," "coward," "dung-smelling." An adult begins to say "s--t" but stops himself and says "stuff" instead. Someone on television seems to be saying "f--k," but the sound is blocked and the word "censored" is stamped over his face. An off-color astronomy joke references the word "Uranus."

Social Behavior

Taking care of others is important. Sometimes you have to sacrifice what you want most to do the right thing.
