Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that because this story involves animals, there's a lot of butt-sniffing and slapstick jokes. While no animals are harmed, an injection with a large needle and cattle prod are used to threaten them and -- since he's a dog --Tim Allen. Allen inadvertently appears nude in front of the courthouse (although no nudity is shown) and mutters, "Everyone's gonna need therapy after this."

Sexual Content

Nudity is implied but not shown as Tim Allen changes back and forth into a canine.


Cattle prod, injections used to threaten animals. Mild peril.


Words such as butt and pee.

Social Behavior

Bad behavior is met with consequences.


Numerous Kellogg's product placements (Pop Tarts, Special K, Rice Krispies) and Coca-Cola products (Coke, Diet Coke, Minute Maid).
