Cats & Dogs needed to have more gags and punchlines than Dr. Dolittle. Unfortunately, all it has is a great concept.

At its best, Cats and Dogs is a series of missed opportunities that represents adequate entertainment for the age 5-9 crowd. At its worst, this is another example of why so many PG-rated films fail at the box office.

The filmmakers seem more worried about their 6,700 latex mice and gallons of food coloring than their characters.

Cats & Dogs is, at its absolute peak, faintly amusing.

Is about as original as, well, your typical summer assembly-line family entertainment.

I couldn't be cattier - "Cats & Dogs" should be relegated to the pooper scooper.

Whoever created the theatrical trailer should be applauded (or disdained) for doing such a great job in making a bad movie look good.

I started to wonder if beating a joke to within an inch of its life constitutes cruelty.

Even at a Chihuahua-sized 83 minutes, the movie begins to feel funny in the same way that having the neighbor's dog attach himself to your leg is funny. You laugh while you're wishing you could pull yourself away.

Spends too much time chewing on its computer effects or purring over its animatronic puppetry and too little taming its amusing premise.

Once you've seen the gimmick and gadgets, the movie begins to feel like it's stuck in a loop; it hasn't enough wits or smarts to wring more than a few decent jokes and observations out of its one-note set-up.

There are movies intended solely for kids and movies intended for kids but also enjoyable for adults. Cats and Dogs falls into the former category.

On paper, it may have looked like 'Cats and Dogs' would prove a winner with both children and adults. Maybe even another 'Babe'. Something, however, obviously went seriously wrong between the drawing board and the transformation to celluloid.
