This review of the movie contains the following information:
The Queen of England (voice of Julie Walters) receives a corgi puppy as a present from Prince Phillip (Tom Courtenay) that she names Rex (Jack Whitehall). Rex soon becomes her favourite, much to the annoyance of the older dogs, Nelson (Anthony Skordi), Margaret (Lin Gallagher) and, particularly, Charlie (Matt Lucas). Rex is quickly elevated to top dog but falls from favour when, at a state dinner for the visiting US president, he bites Donald Trump (Jon Culshaw) in the ‘unmentionable place’.
Charlie sees this as his opportunity and suggests to Rex that they run away to live in the Pope’s palace. Rex is unsure about leaving his palatial lifestyle, but Charlie persuades him. Charlie, however, has other plans and pushes Rex off a bridge into freezing water. Fortunately, Rex is saved but he ends up in a dog pound. There he meets Wanda (Sheridan Smith) who he instantly falls in love with but Wanda belongs to Tyson (Ray Winstone), a large Pitbull. Tyson runs a fight club which Rex gets initiated into. Rex eventually manages to escape with the help of Wanda and the other dogs, but still has a long way to get back to Buckingham Palace.
Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.
Adult themes; bullying; predatory sexual behaviour; treachery and betrayal.
Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
