Middling soccer dog flick has questionable drug scene.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Soccer Dog's premise is the story of an orphan who grows up and adopts a boy, wishing to instill in him his love of a sport. There's a questionable scene where a parent gives his son a pill to administer unknowingly to another kid to purposely make him sick, which is done successfully and without consequence. Minor insulting language is used on occasion, such as calling a stray dog a "stupid mutt." There's also some sustained peril and a scene where two men brawl briefly over a dog (who is discovered tied up with a noose) but no one is injured.
