Any time a sequel to a film goes straight to DVD it makes you question just how good it can be and with this one the original human cast did not return so that too can make it very difficult but thankfully they decided to make the film about the animals instead and it turned out to be a decent second film that kids are sure to enjoy. This time around the family is in danger of having their house foreclosed by a banker who is a cat person so the dogs decide to raise the money themselves and save the day. First they enter a dog show but end up losing out to a poodle and there's plenty more blunders along the way and with them comes loads of fun laughs the entire family can enjoy together. The film sports an all-star cast, including George Lopez (voice of Papi) who is his hilarious self as always. Sure there are better Disney sequels out there but for what it is the film is highly entertaining and I suspect it will not be the last time we hear from these pups since family films are always welcomed and I see this doing very well on DVD and Blu-ray.

I am sure there will be some out there that give the film some negative feedback but if you're an parent and have little kids then I highly recommend picking this up. As we all know there can never be enough family entertainment.
