DC League of Super-Pets was a good kids’ movie. I’m basing my review solely on the targeted audience. Little kids. The humor was there for them, there were some great moral lessons going on and the animation looked really cool for kids. This isn’t one of the kids’ movies that adults are still entertained in sly ways. I was bored but my 9-year-old granddaughter loved it. She only had one complaint and that was the terrible sadness that has to do with Ace’s backstory. That was rough on her. I noticed a few kids in my theater crying. It was definitely relatable to real-life lessons. They did it in a smooth way but the hurt was still there. She’s recommending a B+, I think I’ll use her grade since she was the targeted audience.
The unstoppable duo of The Rock and Kevin Hart was certainly delightful. Those two go together like peanut butter and jelly. I’ve enjoyed every movie they have done together until this one. Again, I’m not saying it was bad, I just didn’t feel the chemistry between the two. As I thought about it last night I decided it was because I didn’t see them. They’re funny on screen in real life, the animation took their chemistry away.
I will still recommend this movie for a weekend family fun date. Simply go in knowing that it’s only geared towards the kids, us adults were left out of this one.
About The Peetimes: I would really recommend the 2nd Peetime. It’s a sad scene that made a lot of the children in my theater cry.

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
