TV & FILM

Holy exposition dump... Did you catch all of that information in the first ten seconds of this trailer? I'm sad to say that, like 2009's G Force—anyone remember that one?—Will Arnett is once again fronting a film where he's one of the only live action actors amongst a gaggle of talking animal co-stars. The film is Show Dogs, and if it's not this year's Nine Lives, I don't know what is. Sidebar, are they gonna go back and replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in that flick as well? It'd be pretty easy, what with him being a talking cat for the bulk of the running time.
Here's basically everything you need to know about this film in one screen shot taken from the trailer's official YouTube page...
I love Will Arnett. He's basically the Bruce Willis of his generation, in that he manages to make himself both above the material, yet oddly committed to it, no matter the quality. This looks like a hot pile of garbage though. It looks astoundingly bad. I can't abide him and a talking dog fighting over the radio dial even for one second.
If nothing else, I'll say this much for Show Dogs. They got Stanley Tucci to voice one of the dogs. It's like they're daring me not to see it now. Oh, what's that Show Dogs' IMDB page? This gentleman is credited as what now?
Sigh. I'll be there when Show Dogs opens on April 6.
