Best Quotes from Trailer:
Max: I’m Max, I’m an undercover cop working a kidnapping case. A baby panda was stolen and they’re using a dog show as a front for animal smuggling.
Frank: Why are there dogs in this meeting?
Max: That’s what partners are for.
Frank: What is happening in this town?!
Max: Let’s take these smugglers down.
[to Max; fighting over which radio station to listen to]
Frank: Stop it! What kind of dog likes hip-hop?!
[referring to the dog show]
Max: Are we in the right place, I could have swore we were backstage at a the Cirque du Soleil?
Female Dog: Wait, you’re a cop?
Max: I’m working undercover.
Frank: What if you actually won the whole show?
Phillipe: [laughing] Nope.
Max: Hey, you do remember I bite, right?
Max: Alright, coach, what’s our first move?

[as Frank is washing Max in the sink]

Max: Phillipe, what are you doing?
[we see Phillipe lying in bed with cucumbers on his eyes]

[to Max as he prepares to wax Max’s backside]
