“Arctic Dogs” (AMBI Group)
By Catholic News Service
This animated feature, directed and co-written by Aaron Woodley, follows the exploits of a fox (voice of Jeremy Renner) who dreams of joining the top dogs (voices of Michael Madsen, Laurie Holden and Donny Falsetti) who work for his home town’s delivery service. Achieving his ambition, he crosses paths with a walrus (voice of John Cleese) bent on destroying the community and must work with a local engineer (voice of Heidi Klum), on whom he’s always had a crush, to try to save it.
Although the values in this action-packed but unoriginal film are suitable for everyone, the “be true to yourself” message has had better vehicles.
One crass term, a few instances of bathroom humor. The Catholic News Service classification is A-II — adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG — parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
