A dog wearing a little hoodie—adorable, especially if accompanied by a leggy and voluptuous owner. A dog clad in a little cape and does nothing but fly fast and scream obnoxiously, however, should be neutered, just like the script of the painfully one-note kiddie mess Underdog.

Underdog is the Kevin James of the canine community. Whereas James resorts to pratfalls and crotch-shots for laughs, the super-powered beagle flies into things and whizzes past folks’ heads with a “How wacky am I?” attitude. “Wack” is more like it. It’s really not hard to make people chuckle at physical comedy, but somehow Underdog fails, though not for lack of effort. Little kids would even say, “Step your game up, pooch.”
