Animated action comedy directed by Rob Minkoff and Mark Koetsier, loosely inspired by Mel Brooks’s Blazing Saddles (1974). Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank (2022) centers on hard-on-his-luck hound, Hank (Michael Cera), who finds himself in a town full of cats who need a hero to defend them from ruthless villain Ika Chu’s (Ricky Gervais) evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant teacher, Jimbo (Samuel L. Jackson), to train him, Hank must assume the role of town samurai and team up with the villagers to save the day. The only problem, cats hate dogs.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Jimbo: Why do you want to be a samurai?
Hank: I lived in a bad part of town full of bad dogs. Everybody always picked on me. I thought if I could be a samurai, it would change everything.
Jimbo: Sounds like you need a mentor.
Hank: Perhaps a once great samurai who has fallen on hard times, and maybe could use some help himself. But where would I find one?
Jimbo: [as a neon sign with “Samurai” on it points at him] What? Get out of here! Who even made that?
Hank: It’s you!
Jimbo: Don’t believe everything you read.
Emiko: [as a giant cat samurai breaks through the wall of the bar] Samurai Hank, you have to do something!
Hank: You’re under arrest.
Jimbo: [as the giant cat samurai slaps him across the bar] You wanted to be a samurai. Fun, isn’t it? Go get him!
Hank: I’ve got to make this samurai thing work.
Hank: Hey, this is the training montage, isn’t it?
Jimbo: Don’t forget to land on your…
Jimbo: [Hank lands on his back] Feet.
Ika Chu: We’ve got to wipe that town off the map. Send a tweet to assemble the troops.
Ohga: Who knew an evil army could go through so many beans?
Jimbo: What the mother father cocker spaniel is going on here?
Hank: Time to finish this.
Jimbo: [as Hank and Ika Chu keep charging at each other] This might take a while.
