5 movies for when you can't get enough pug

Is there such a thing as too much pug content? Based on how much time we spend ogling pugs on Instagram, we’d argue that the answer is probably not. So when picking a movie for a night in, choosing a film that stars a pug sounds appealing, of course! From animated films to black and white, drama to comedy, pugs have been earning celebrity status on the big screen for over years. The next time you’re planning a movie night, here are five films featuring your favorite breed to choose from:

Men in Black (I & II)

Frank the pug was first seen in the 1997 Men in Black movie, where he stole the hearts of viewers. Without giving too much away, he may look and act like a pug, but he’s something a bit more… alien. It was no surprise that he had an even bigger role in the 2002 sequel, where he upgrades from “Frank” to “Agent F.” But, it seems like his pug-ness begins to take over: he becomes a nuisance to his partner because he wouldn’t stop talking. (Sound familiar to the pug owners out there?)

The Adventures of Milo and Otis

This 1986 movie is a story of an unlikely friendship and overcoming obstacles. A kitten (Milo) and a pug puppy (Otis) stray from their home in Japan and find themselves on quite an adventure as they try to find their way back home. The movie is narrated by Dudley Moore, and passes the family movie night test: it’s rated G.

The Secret Life of Pets

Mel the pug is part of the crew of pets who star in the animated movies The Secret Life of Pets 1 and 2. The family-friendly films take place in New York City and follow the adventures of pups, cats, and even a bunny when their owners aren’t around. Bobby Moynihan plays the voice of Mel, and fellow comedians Ellie Kemper, Kevin Hart, and Jenny Slate are the voices for other characters in the films. While there’s nothing incredibly deep about these movies, they’re a fun watch for pet-lovers.

The Nut Job

The Nut Job follows Surly, a squirrel, in his attempt to restore Liberty Par’s winter food supply after accidentally destroying it at the start of the film. Surly finds himself meeting some not-so-nice characters, including Precious’ (the voice of Maya Rudolph) criminal owners. This family-friendly movie has a squirrel, a rat, a pug, and a whole lot of funny coincidences that will have adults and children howling with laughter.


While the pug isn’t a primary character in Kingsman, his role is very important to the plot. (Or, at least, it is to any pug lover out there!) This movie stars Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson, and is the story of a spy organization that recruits kids into their training program. While we’d recommend watching the full movie, you can watch one of the best pug scenes here:
