User Review

Clever, Likable Kids Movie

Rating: 7/10


This was a pretty clever film mixing live characters and human voices
for the dogs and cats. The dubbing is extremely well-done, and so is
the humor. It's a funny story, although it displays the typical
whacked-out father, which is another political correctness feminist
agenda (mother = good; father = bad). Other than that, it is a very
entertaining film even with a bunch of silliness.

Check the cast out. How often to you see Susan Sarandon and Charleton
Heston in the same movie. Now THERE is diversity, even if it's only
their voices!

People here complain the film is too much for kids, and not adults.
Well, isn't that terrible? Imagine the nerve of these filmmakers, doing
something just for children!
