Storyline

Welcome to a world where dogs can not only talk -- they can SING! Tiny, a cute little Yorkie pup with a big voice, gets a chance to audition for the singing competition for dogs, "Pup Star." After she earns a place in the finale, she's suddenly dog-napped! But with the help of her new friend, Charlie, a retired rock-and-roller, she escapes. Together they leave on an incredible journey through some of music's most iconic cities. They meet Big Ears - a soulful Bassett Hound who teaches Tiny to belt out the blues, Murray - a spiritual shaggy dog who helps her find her inner rhythm, and Emily Rose - a country-singing shepherd who helps her learn to sing from her heart. Most important of all, they all encourage Tiny to believe in herself and never give up on her dreams! Filled with all-new songs and the biggest cast of talking and singing canines ever assembled, Pup Star is an incredible family film filled with fun, music and heart.

And adorable movie for the whole family
26 April 2018 | by ComedyFan2010See all my reviews

The target audience of this movie are mainly young kids but the adults who watch it with them will also get to enjoy it.

It is about a cute dog Tiny participating in a singing competition. It seems to be based on American Idol. I am not a fan of the show but I could see that the jury dogs were created based on the original jury of American Idol.

Like kid movies should it includes a learning message of fighting for one's dreams and to do it in a fair way. It also includes a lot of adventures that will keep the kids interested.

Us adults will be able to guess how the movie will go, but it is still enjoyable to watch especially if one loves dogs. The dogs are incredibly cute and also get us to laugh.
