Movie Info

Chloe, a diamond-clad, bootie wearing Beverly Hills Chihuahua enjoys her luxurious lifestyle so much, she hardly notices Papi, a hilarious Chihuahua who happens to be crazy for Chloe. But when the most pampered pooch gets lost in Mexico with only a street-wise German Shepherd to help her find her way home, Papi heads south of the border--joining forces with a motley crew: three dogs, two humans, a sly rat and a nervous iguana--to rescue his true love.

It kind of reaffirmed a lot of cultural stereotypes.

It's cute and sweet and funny.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua isn't terrible. OK, it's kind of terrible, but it's a talking-dog movie, and anyone who goes to a talking-dog movie without being prepared to step in poop deserves to ruin his shoes.

For most of Beverly Hills Chihuahua, all I could think about was Drew Barrymore. What might she have been up to while she recited her lines for Chloe, the spoiled yet sad-looking live-action Chihuahua that speaks in her voice.

The good news: Beverly Hills Chihuahua is not the apocalypse-signaling, cultural abomination its trailers make it out to be. The bad news: That's pretty much the best thing that can be said about it.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua is hardly Best in Show when it comes to Disney dog movies.

A kid's film doesn't have to be an all time classic to be watchable - once anyway - for the whole audience. No one in Beverly Hills Chihuahua seems to care enough to bother. And if they don't care, why should I?

...ultimately about as enthralling as a low-rent Saturday morning cartoon.

Gosnell gracelessly walks us through cheap, generic talking dog material, while parents everywhere groan silently to themselves.

March 25, 2009 Full Review Source:

An appealing film for dog lovers and those seeking escapist entertainment.

It's hugely silly, but peppy enough to be tolerable. What grates most are the patronising racial stereotypes: the dirty Mexican dogs are just waiting to be rescued by LA ladies and given a good bath.

Younger audiences will adore this canine caper, though grown-ups might feel its one joke is stretched too far.

January 16, 2009 Full Review Source: Film4

In a triumph of animal wrangling and CGI tinkering, the canine cast turn in better performances than some of the humans.

This piece of egregious silliness from Disney - featuring live-action canines with CGI moving mouths - isn't quite as awful as it sounds.

January 16, 2009 Full Review Source: Guardian

Not that anybody would expect perfection from a film called Beverly Hills Chihuahua, but the chewed bone of a story makes it all mutts ado about nothing.

A state-of-the-art kid-pleaser for sure, but recession-weary parents will probably find it a mite obnoxious.

This live-action Disney comedy is the kind of family film which is aimed not so much at parents, as small children and their goldfish, as long as the goldfish do not have too long an attention span.

In truth, this good-natured Disney comedy is an engaging romp.

It's put across with enough brio to excuse the inherent stupidity of the premise.

You want to cringe as the picture begins, but you end up quite enjoying it.

Watchable, largely average family movie, enlivened by decent performances and the occasionally surreal, off-the-wall moment.

January 16, 2009 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

Silly beyond reason, it somehow manages to win us over despite our doubts, and by the end we're ashamed that we can't stop giggling.

What doesn't make sense is that while the doggies can follow human speech, the humans don't get pooch talk, it's all Yap-Yapanese.

A thin plotline and tired jokes make Beverly Hills Chihuahua a forgettable family film despite a few cute moments.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua is definitely not a bad film, but it's premise is very overdone. We have seen this before but not with chihuahua's lurking about. It's dumb, but it is a delight for children!
