Picture from Bolt
Overall A

In this animated adventure, Bolt (voice of John Travolta) is a dog with super powers --or so he thinks. Really he is just an actor in a TV show. This painful truth becomes a problem when the pup accidentally gets separated from his co-star and owner Penny (voice of Miley Cyrus), and has to find his way home with only the help of a stray cat (voice of Susie Essman) and a ball-imprisoned hamster (voice of Mark Walton).

Like Bolt, Buzz Lightyear has to eventually acknowledge he is an action figure rather than a real space commander in Toy Story. For older audiences, The Truman Story is also about a man who unknowingly lives in a fabricated society where he is constantly under surveillance by cameras that broadcast his life to TV audiences. The canine and feline worlds are at war in the film Cats & Dogs.
