“I think I’ve been saved by a poor person.”

Synopsis: A pampered dog named Trouble must learn to live in the real world while trying to escape from his former owner’s greedy children.

Imagine being so well taken care of that you are out of touch with the real world. That’s exactly what’s going on in Trouble’s life. He has an owner who adores him and every and anything a dog could imagine until one day…He gets lost and has to learn how to survive in the outdoors—a place that is just as familiar to him as outer space.

After his owner, Mrs. Sarah Vanderwhoozie (Betty White) passes away, Trouble (Big Sean) is left at the mercy of two would-be inheritors, Claire and Norbert, that are looking more after the money and less concerned about looking after Trouble. In their haste to sell off the estate and get rid of all his animal toys and things, trying to rescue his favorite toy, Trouble finds himself in a moving truck going to dog knows where. When Claire (Marissa Jaret Winokur) and Norbert (Joel McHale) find out that in order to collect the inheritance they have to take care of Trouble and can’t find him anywhere they hire Thurman Sanchez (Wilmer Valderrama), a weird dog detective (reminds you of Carey in Ace Ventura When Nature Calls) to find him.

Having made it out of the truck, and learning the truth about his owner’s death, Trouble accidentally messes up a group of red squirrels’ nut storage in their tree. In a typical West Side Story rendition, the squirrels steal his collar, leaving Trouble lost, alone, and looking like a stray. Trouble meets a stray dog named Rousey (Pamela Adlon) who is not exactly the warmest character he could meet and, in trying to get rid of Trouble, she deceives him into going into the city to find his way back home where he runs into an old acquaintance…

Will Trouble find his way back home? You will just have to watch the movie to find out.

We give Dog Gone Trouble

Rating: 4 out of 5.

In this canine dish, you will find some tasty treats…won’t mention—no spoilers here. I am not a dog fancier, but I simply love animal movies and this one had a lot of kibbles and bits that you will find hilarious, the children will like this mild manner film and the colorful graphics sprinkled with bits of visual gags. But there is a storyline to this mix that is simple and easy to follow—there’s no place like home with the people you love. This is a movie for the entire family with some really good life lessons. Such as there are just some things money can’t buy. We must never take our lives for granted. Sometimes you will find the best of friends in some of the strangest places. The wealthiest people are not necessarily the ones with all the money, but the ones that possess a wealth of love.
