Beyond being entertained, I was delighted by the movie's outpouring of slapstick invention (one crazed sequence in a pet store has all the pawmarks of a classic), and the genial energy of its star, David Arquette.
Do your kids a favor - and take them to see something more worthwhile than the relentlessly vulgar and stupid See Spot Run.
See Spot Run isn't solely responsible for the dumbing down of movies, but it's part of the dismal phenomenon.

How do you screw up a family movie that has a cute bull mastiff, a cute 6-year-old and David Arquette playing a mailman? Apparently by unleashing half a dozen writers to gnaw it to pieces and entrusting the result to a TV director (John Whitesell of "Cosby" and "Roseanne") with little sense of how to tell a story longer than six minutes.
