An animated DC Comics film in which the superhero’s pets take center stage tops the DVD releases for the week of Oct. 4.
“DC League of Super-Pets”: What if Superman had a dog? And that dog had to save Superman from a Lex Luthor-loyal guinea pig with a motley crew of rescue animals? That’s the premise of this family-friendly adventure featuring the voices of Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, John Krasinski and more.
“Both cutesy and comic, this animated film finds a way for kids and families to experience these well-known characters, but older DC fans will enjoy the references to their beloved comic book tales too,” writes Tribune News Service critic Katie Walsh in her review. “It’s a funny and sweet refresh on the DC lore that should please fans old and new.”
