“Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank” (Paramount)
By Catholic News Service
Bathroom humor reaches new depths in this animated martial-arts spoof loosely based on the 1974 comedy “Blazing Saddles” and directed by Rob Minkoff, Mark Koetsier, and Chris Bailey.
A warmongering cat (voice of Ricky Gervais) plots to destroy a neighboring feline village by installing a hapless dog (voice of Michael Cera) as its protector. But a washed-up samurai (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) agrees to train the canine in the sacred arts to fend off an invading army.
Intense cartoonish violence, rude scatological humor. The Catholic News Service classification is A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association rating is PG — parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
