Amusing but not notable
26 February 2019 | by jamesrupert2014See all my reviews

I was surprised that this short was up for an Oscar in the best short-animated category. The film, which is about a diverse group of anthropomorphic animals in therapy (led by a reformed pit-bull) is moderately funny but not particularly clever, innovative, nor memorable.
