PAW Patrol: The Movie - Review

The PAW Patrol has been a popular force in our house since it debuted in 2013 on Nickelodeon.  Throughout all of the television episodes, DVD specials, and now a movie - these pups have alway entertained.  I have to admit that my expectations were not super high going into my screening of the film - I mean, its a preschool TV show now on the big screen, right?  WRONG!  I walked away loving this film and ranking it up there as one of my favorites of the year so far.  The movie goes deeper than you would expect tackling self-doubt, friendship, and overcoming fears.

One of my favorite storylines in the film centers around Chase.  Viewers get a little backstory on Chase who is actually from Adventure City before Ryder rescues him as a little pup and takes him to Adventure Bay.  When the "yelp for help" takes the PAW Patrol crew to Adventure City, Chase has to confront his past and go back to the place where he was once a scared and lonely little puppy.  We see him struggle with coming to terms with his past and what it truly means to be a hero.

Fans will also relate to and love the all-new pup, Liberty.  Liberty is the ultimate fangirl - loving the PAW Patrol her whole life and calling them into help her beloved Adventure City falls into the hands of newly elected Mayor Humdinger.  Liberty learns that through friendship, hard work, and perseverance, even the biggest dreams of the littlest pups can come true.

The movie is entertaining for your kids, but also will hold the attention and enthusiasm of adults.  At right around 90 minutes, the movie is timed perfectly.  The voice cast also features some pretty big star power including appearances by Dax Sheppard, Tyler Perry, Kim Kardashian West, and Jimmy Kimmel.  Young stars Iain Armitage and Marsai Martin voice Chase and Liberty respectively.  My kids tend to find a movie or show they like and want to watch it over and over and over again; this movie is one that I won't mind watching on repeat right alongside of them!
