Cats & Dogs
Things Are Gonna Get Hairy!
When a professor develops a vaccine that eliminates human allergies to dogs, he unwittingly upsets the fragile balance of power between cats and dogs and touches off an epic battle for pet supremacy. The fur flies as the feline faction, led by Mr. Tinkles, squares off against wide-eyed puppy Lou and his canine cohorts.
Pussies and Bitches.
The things kids films get away with.
A compelling argument for why mankind should not have dominion over animals.
I CANT BELIEVE JEFF GOLDBLUM IS IN THIS
Day 21 of "100 Days, 100 Childhood Classics"
Jeff Goldblum is one of the greatest screen presences of our time- he can elevate any piece of shit movie just by starring in it. In Cats and Dogs, he represents the sole reason to watch the movie, dialling his distinctive mannerisms up to eleven and revelling in starring in a movie where one of the first things he does is lick a cat.
The script is written by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa in their debut screenplay- the pair would later go on to write the screenplay for Bad Santa (my favourite Christmas movie) and have a pretty solid track record as directors with I love you Phillip Morris, Crazy Stupid…
The best movie. The Only movie.
Whodathunkit? After suffering though Freddy Got Fingered, I popped in Cats & Dogs expecting to be, if not thoroughly delighted, at least somewhat bemused with childhood whimsy. What I didn't expect, was a nearly unwatchable and totally insipid insult to the intelligence. I got so absolutely disgusted with Cats & Dogs that I turned it off and didn't even bother finishing it. Yup, it's that wretched.
Now, some people will claim that I'm biased, because, after all, Cats & Dogs is a children's movie, and I am not a child. That is a bogus argument. Truly great children's movies can transcend that age barrier. Some of the most beloved films of all time are children's movies, from The Wizard of Oz to Willy…
You can certainly have some winsome pet shenanigans, including FLUBBER-like stunts, while maintaining the heft of regular American comedy. You doubt it, but I doubt you. Do you actually exist? Well, with a sequel poignantly subtitled THE REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE, CATS & DOGS the original film unveils its whole central story masterfully. I'm reminded of Renoir's GRANDE ILLUSION, especially in von Stroheim's German officer Rauffenstein, in how Guterman sympathizes with the wry cat villain Mr. Tinkles. Certainly conjuring an epic spy showdown between canine and feline seems a big liability, but if there could be any kind of new examination of class politics or war politics deep inside it then I would hesitate to write it off completely.
Had this on VHS and probably watched it 40-50 times as child. Gonna let nostalgia take over here.
This is an average kids movie. It will entertain them just fine. The real highlight is seeing Jeff Goldblum try to be a father. That's what I call real comedy.
I forgot that Jeff Goldblum was in this.
Yikes. Movies don't hold up when you were 9.
The best movie. The Only movie.
