Has a lot of problems but it is bright, breezy and good natured
3 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This flawed but watchable family comedy means well and essentially it is bright, breezy and good natured. The script has its weak spots, Nathan Cavaleri is rather bland as Zac, the story is rather standard and the pace is uneven a little too rushed for my taste. But the film is enjoyable thanks to a cute and appealing little Jack Russell terrier named PC voiced brilliantly by Billy Connolly and some inspired physical comedy and action. It is nicely filmed and the direction is not that bad. Sandy Gore has fun as villainess Anya too.

Overall, "Paws" has a lot of problems but it is a harmless and fun family film. I will say if you want a more adorable, heart warming and fun Australian family film I recommend "Napoleon". 6/10 Bethany Cox
