What Parents Need to Know
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."
- Families can talk about what it would be like to live, albeit briefly, as someone or something else. If your kids could transform into anything, what would they pick and why?
- For the more adventurous, you might ask what your kids think aboutcruelty in animal testing, which the teenage daughter is activelyprotesting. Are there ever circumstances when it's necessary to test onanimals?
