Cinema fans are braced for the heel-good film of the Summer, as 'Pitbully Elliot' tells the tale of one dancing dog's struggle to be accepted for who he really is.
Raised in a northern collie-ery community where dancing for the pleasure of Simon Cowell is the norm, Pitbully knows from the start that he wants something else to get his teeth into. But when his father is crippled after licking his genitals with his teeth bared, Pitbully vows to hide his shameful secret, and pretends to be a Spaniel.
Ultimately unsatisfied by a life of endless pirouettes, fox-trots and tutus, Pitbully tries to keep his mouth shut, and wag his way through it. But deep down, he knows he has to listen to his instincts, even though he risks tearing some families apart.
Can Pitbully achieve his dream of fighting badgers in an industrial lock-up? Who is the mystery backer, who fancies him against the odds of 5/4-on? And just how long can he tolerate dance lessons, before the police are called in to Taser him?
Based on a novel described as ‘unputdownable’ by critics, the opposite could be true for this dangerous dog. Starring Ross Kemp as the owner, and Danny Dyer as the squeeky toy. Rating TBC: the director swears its safe with kids, but the authorities are insisting on a couple of snips.
