Clint Says: Wait for the DVD
It's not really fair to judge a film by comparison to other films, but this one was released just three weeks after THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE and I can't help but see how much ROCK DOG pales in comparison to it. Not only is it not in the same ballpark, but they aren't even playing the same game.
I took my young daughters to see this movie. One of them thought it was okay, the other didn't like it. I did hear them both giggling a couple of times, but I also looked over at them every once in a while and saw that they weren't really engaged.
It isn't a bad movie, but it isn't great either. Personally, if you are going to spend the money to see something in the theater with your kids I think you'd be better off seeing LEGO BATMAN a second time.
Even when it hits the DVD and digital market it will be worth a rental at best.
