Disney’s G-Force; Irresponsible Filmmaking

Could films be encouraging and contributing to the neglect of household pets? That was a question that would once have made me roll my eyes. I have always been sceptical about the  impact that films have on their audiences and have never bought into the idea that violent film’s equal violent people and other similar notions.
