Still shot from the movie: Underdog.


It's a dog eat dog world, so that's why an ordinary beagle with extraordinary superpowers decides to don a cape and tights and try to save the citizens of Capitol City (especially the four-legged ones). A live action remake of the old cartoon series, Underdog features the voice talents of Jason Lee and Amy Adams -- and a lot of CGI effects. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Underdog Rated PG?

A clumsy little beagle gets super powers after a mad scientist injects him with a secret potion. As a crime fighter he accidentally starts a fire, causes car crashes, repeatedly breaks windows, destroys property and disrupts businesses. Other slapstick violence includes a man being hit by a heavy ball and attacked by dogs. The hero is also seen stealing food. The script contains brief references to bodily functions and some mild sexual comments along with occasional name-calling.
