Movie Info

One of the most expensive of Don Bluth's animated cartoon features, All Dogs Go to Heaven was also among the most successful. Set in late-'30s New Orleans, the story centers upon a roguish German shepherd named Charlie B. Barkin (voice of Burt Reynolds), who is killed early in the proceedings by his business partner, Carface (voice of Vic Tayback). Charlie travels to Heaven, and is promptly warned that if he heads back to Earth, he can never return; he does decide to go back to Earth, however,

A barking romp too intense for younger children.

Don Bluth's second outright triumph; a film whose burial in the last 20 years is nothing short of a crime.

Cute family fare in the Don Bluth tradition.

Relatively charmless cartoon fare.

Audience Reviews for All Dogs Go To Heaven

Maybe all dogs go to heaven, but this movie goes to hell.

I didn't like this movie when I was a kid, mostly because I didn't like dog movies, but maybe I'd watch it again sometime if it was on TV to see if I still think it's a bad movie.

I LOVED this movie as a kid. In a re watch, um, is this supposed to be a kid's movie? Cause there is no way in hell it is. Subjects include: drinking, smoking, gambling and murder!
But still, I never minded it as a kid, so more power to Don Bluth for that. So beautiful and endearing.

All Dogs Go To Heaven is a sure kids classic adventure! By the time it ends, I want it to be just beginning. Not perfect, but brilliant!

    1. Anne-Marie: Will I ever see you again?
    2. Charlie: Sure. Sure you will. You know goodbyes aren't forever.
    3. Anne-Marie: Well then, goodbye, Charlie. I love you.
    4. Charlie: Yeah, uh. I love you too.

    3. Carface: Shut up.
    4. Whippet Angel: I SAID, TOUCH THAT CLOCK AND YOU CAN NEVER COME BACK! [chases Carface as he leaves heaven]
    5. Charlie: [to the audience] He'll be back...

    1. Carface: I do not wish that I should share 50 percent of the business with my partner, Charlie.
    2. Killer: You want me to squeeze his head with the pliers? *snickers*
    3. Carface: Killer, Killer! That is no way to treat an old friend. Friends should be handled in a 'friendly and business-like' way...
