Beverly Hills Chihuahua
50% Warrior. 50% Lover. 100% Chihuahua.
A pampered Beverly Hills chihuahua named Chloe who, while on vacation in Mexico with her owner Viv's niece, Rachel, gets lost and must rely on her friends to help her get back home before she is caught by a dognapper who wants to ransom her.
I was expecting to hate this movie but I was suprised at how much I ended up enjoying this family film. The kids will have a great time watching this and the adults will also be entertained as there is a lot of humor for all to enjoy. The dogs move their lips in a very believable way so the effects work. What I enjoyed the most about this movie is that each character goes along with its sterotype: for examle you have the german shepard being a police dog, then you hace the doberman being the mean character, the rat playing the thief, and the coyote playing well a coyote who takes animals across the Mexican border to America.…
Alright, so there's an adorable chihuahua, voiced by Drew Barrymore to make her extra charming, who lives a spoiled life in Beverly Hills, and she loves to hang out at the pool with her friends, who include a gay pug (omg). And then there's this Mexican chihuahua who is in love with her but she's not interested because he's Mexican, until she ends up lost in Mexico and then kidnapped and put into a dogfight, where she's almost killed by a Doberman named Diablo. But luckily, she gets saved by a German Shepherd who is haunted by some tragic event in his past (spoiler: he got attacked and lost his sense of smell, and so couldn't be a police dog…
Better than expected. Still pretty cheesy.
Not as godawful as one might imagine.
A fish out of water story, but the fish is a pampered dog. Cutesy talking dog fun.
As unimaginable idiotic as the concept may be (and, mind you, it is), this actually feels like a real movie instead of a Disney Channel Original weekend churn out.
My guilty pleasure, I don't know why I enjoy this film? I guess its the incredibly cute dogs in it. Some bits are genuinely funny. The idea of dogs enjoying being dressed up, nails painted and having pool parties is completely ridiculous; yet endearingly funny.
This rating is also tainted by my dog, I am convinced that she loves this film.
