PAW Patrol: The Movie is a great film for the family to see together. Young kids will love it. The animation is beautiful, the plot is satisfying, and the soundtrack is upbeat. The movie keeps the essence of the television show while updating it in a way that keeps the show fresh and exciting.
The plot of the movie centers on the Paw Patrol’s move to Adventure City to counter Mayor Humdinger’s antics, with a subplot about Chase overcoming his fears of the big city. There is also a backstory about Chase and Ryder introduced at the beginning of the film which comes into play in a key scene later in the movie.
One of the things I like about Paw Patrol is that it is clean and appropriate for kids. And unlike other kids’ shows these days, it doesn’t really have an agenda other than to entertain and uphold positive values. There are some environmental themes, but they are done in a balanced manner and not at all preachy or in your face.
It was refreshing to get out and go to the movie. I think the last time we saw a movie in the theater was pre-COVID. It made for a nice family outing.
So if you have young kids, I encourage you to take them to this movie. They will be entertained; and unless it’s in the previews before the movie, you won’t have to worry about inappropriate content, which is sadly becoming commonplace these days.
