Innocuous is too edgy a word to describe this screen take on Brad Anderson and Phil Leeming’s long-running comic strip; it’s truly a milquetoast Scooby Snack for pet-friendly families who thrill to computer-generated mouth movements on real-life four-legged critters. One promising novelty is the reimagining of a pooch park as a clique-crazy high school where the eponymous Great Dane (Wilson) is trying to fit in, but that spark of inspiration gets muzzled pretty quickly by “who let the dogs out?” jokes and canine flatulence. If you’re allergic to pet dander and unchecked cuteness, you should beware of this dog.—Stephen Garrett
