After a spot of therapy Cruella De Vil is released from prison a changed woman. Devoted to dogs and good causes, she is delighted that Chloe, her parole officer, has a dalmatian family and connections with a dog charity. But the sound of Big Ben can reverse the treatment so it is only a matter of time before Ms De Vil is back to her incredibly ghastly ways, using her new-found connections with Chloe and friends.

Did You Know?
Kevin Lima's live-action directorial debut.
When Le Pelt says "Now I crush you little man" his lips don't move.
Cruella DeVil is at it again…
I saw the original "101 Dalmatians" 3 times while en route from England
home to the USA and I loved it. So when I saw there was a new dalmatians
movie, "102 Dalmatians," I was elated and when I saw it, I was NOT
disappointed. In fact, I liked this version even better than the first.
Glenn Close's performance as "Ella" who has been imprisoned for 3 years
dognapping but who received behavioral modification but reverts to
when Big Ben's chimes go off, is delightfully dastardly. And the
by Gerard Depardieu as the loathsome LaPelt is extraordinary. But the
performances, the ones who "take the cake" are those by the Dalmatians,
or created, especially Oddball, the spotless dalmatian puppy who is
with "S-P-O-T-S." The scene where she goes berserk when she sees a black
white sweater on a puppet in a Punch & Judy show is hilarious. There were
scenes in which it looked like the puppies were in real danger but the
lies in the fact that, when you read the credits, you realize those
were created; no puppy was ever in danger. I recommend this movie highly
I should; I've seen it at least 7 times and I also have the video.
