Popular puppies turn into superheroes, with mild action.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Super Buddies is the latest direct-to-DVD release in Disney's popular Buddies franchise, about a group of Golden Retriever puppies who can talk, naturally. This installment takes on the superhero genre with a story about the Buddies acquiring superpowers to help a peaceful alien race defeat one of their rogue, villainous members. There's a good bit of slapstick humor (people falling, getting shocked, turning into animals), and some mild peril as the evil alien tries to "zap" the protagonists and their pups. Overall, however, this is a mild live-action family film with the usual lessons about teamwork, family, and friendship -- but also about the power of literacy (in this case, comic books).
