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

Audience Reviews for All Dogs Go To Heaven

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!
