"Love Is Worth More Than Riches"
What You Need To Know:
Streaming on Netflix, DOG GONE TROUBLE is well produced, with impressive animation. Despite some slow parts, it does a good job keeping viewers entertained. The movie has some crude language and scatological humor, however. The greedy niece and nephew suffer the consequences of their actions, though. Also, kindness is eventually rewarded, and love and family prove to be more valuable than riches and material possessions. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children due to the crude humor in Netflix’s DOG GONE TROUBLE.
Streaming on Netflix, the animated movie DOG GONE TROUBLE follows the story of a dog named Trouble whose owner dies, leaving him with crazy relatives who don’t want Trouble to get the inheritance. Trouble, once accustomed to the rich life – sleeping in a king-sized bed and eating fancy foods – is tossed out into the real world and must learn the hard way how to survive as an outside dog. Trouble doesn’t have the best of luck making dog friends. This makes things more difficult for him.
Mrs. Vanderwhoozie, Trouble’s late owner, loved him so much that, for anyone to inherit her estate and the rest of her inheritance, they must first spend time with Trouble, get along with the dog, and then also promise to care for him. Thus, the only way to get all her money is through Trouble! However, Mrs. Vanderhoozie’s greedy relatives, her niece and nephew Claire and Norbert, come running to the estate seeking out money, not knowing that they must first adopt and love Trouble. They accidentally toss him out, and Trouble gets picked up by the moving truck. When they find out about the requirements for the inheritance, Claire and Norbert can’t find Trouble anywhere.
Meanwhile, Trouble must fend for himself in the real world. Will Trouble be able to make it on his own, without a butler? Will Claire and Norbert end up with the estate and all the money?
DOG GONE TROUBLE has good production values. The production and artistic quality is impressive and beautifully done, including the colors of the animation and the sound. Some parts of the story dragged a little bit, but, overall, the movie keeps viewers entertained.
DOG GONE TROUBLE has a strong moral worldview in general, though there is some questionable content. For example, there are greedy, snotty characters who don’t speak kindly to each other. Also, one character meditates and throws sticks and rocks on the ground to get answers. However, these bad attitudes and behaviors come back to hurt them in the end. Thus, the movie’s positive values outweigh the bad ones. Not only do the greedy characters suffer the consequences of their actions, but the movie also shows that love is worth much more than riches. That said, there is some light crude language and toilet humor in DOG GONE TROUBLE. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children.
