The film's story is about a young boy named Freddy Lupin possessing a magical Moonstone, and is heir to the leadership of a family line of werewolves. However, his first transformation doesn't go so well when he turns into a dog (poodle, to be exact) instead. Because dogs are looked down on by werewolves, Freddy has to prove he has the heart of a wolf or risk being banished.
- Faulty grasp on the source material: For starters, Cripp (one of the villains) wasn’t an ice cream man in the original book, nor did he talk to a monkey doll. Second of all, Bruno was able to make full sentences in the book rather than being a lunatic that can only say “ball”. Also, Harriet and Chariot are dumbed down from “villain’s second in commands” to “darn kids and their phones”. Finally, Freddy’s poodle form had black fur in the original before being dyed pink, while here his poodle form is white. Doggy whitewashing, much?
- The werewolves are awful to Freddy, demeaning him and threatening him with banishment because he turned into a poodle instead, something he couldn’t control, didn’t know would happen to him, and didn’t want.
- The unique feature of a secret werewolf society is put aside in favor of a generic dog comedy movie.
- The Commander can be seen as a Cruella De Vil ripoff, down to her goal of wanting to kill dogs and turn them into wigs.
- Likewise, Lord Hotspur is basically Scar if he was a werewolf instead of a Lion.
- Fart and pee jokes throughout.
- The scenes where Freddy and Miss Mutton are penetrated by the rectal thermometer. Remember: this is a family film.
- Funny as she is, Twitchy is still the stereotypical “easily angered short character hates being made fun of for being short”.
- The rivalry between dogs and werewolves doesn’t make much sense when you think about it and is only really done in-depth in the original book.
- Does the overused “Liar Revealed” trope like any other movie that does it poorly.
- Also uses the overdone “pounds are animal prisons” trope.
- Animation is great.
- Climax is interesting.
- Has a good message on acceptance.
- The werewolf designs are cool.
- Subverts the “dead dad” cliche by revealing that Flashheart is alive.
- Miss Mutton is a likable character as she shows genuine concern for Freddy after his transformation and quickly goes to save him once she discovers that he’s in the Coldfax pound.
- The werewolves do get better in the end.
- Said werewolves also have standards, as while they look down on dogs, they (except Hotspur) definitely don’t want them dead.
- They’re also better than in the original book, as there they straight up kicked out Freddy without giving him a chance. They got better there too, though.
- While angry with Freddy for being a liar and a thing she was taught to fear, Batty still shows concern for him when he's taken into Coldfax's dungeon.
