DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS Review: What Works
A heartwarming, lighthearted take on the DCEU, DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS is a fun summer hit kids (and adults) of all ages are sure to enjoy. You don’t have to be a superhero fan or a DC fan to enjoy the film, all you have to be is an animal lover or an animation lover to appreciate this fun take for the whole family.
Quips and references to DCEU comics and other movies for fans to enjoy plus a few jabs at their more well-known animation industry counterparts are perfect fodder for those who are in the know. Lovable animals of all types, from dogs to kittens, guinea pigs to pot-bellied pigs, this cast of animals and accompanying voice actors is nothing short of entertaining.
DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS Review: The Rock and Kevin Hart are Comedy Gold
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are a paring of pure comedy gold. We’d watch anything with this comedic dog duo, but that isn’t to say there’s a single voice actor slouch in the film.
“Saturday Night Live” (SNL) fans will love hearing the voices of Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer. Fans of “The Office” will swoon overJohn Krasinski as the Man of Steel.
A Movie for a Good Cause
As a pet parent of rescue dogs, we’re so thrilled to see that Warner Bros and DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS have teamed up with BestFriends.Org to help promote awareness about rescue animals in need of homes. Together, they’re spotlighting the power of pets in shelters to amaze, astound, and inspire humans everywhere.
