The story is where this movie falls apart from a grown-up's view. It's got an overwritten script that seems like it's been churned out of a weekend screenwriting course.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
And, dare I say it, Cats & Dogs: TROKG is a well-made parody film, sinking its canines into spy genre cliches with gleeful abandon, in a way that its predecessor never quite did.
The action is cute, to be sure, but the cuteness wore off quickly for this adult.
| Original Score: 4/10
I think young children will enjoy the movie very much, while adults will probably opt to go out into the kitchen and wash dishes while the tykes watch it.

Cats & Dogs 2 will be disappointing to fans of the original and will probably fail to capture any new hearts in its own right.
| Original Score: 2/5
No matter that the film felt lumpish and witless, I have to say that the kids at the preview laughed a lot.
There are just enough effects-driven laughs but a bit too much talky dead space in this not-at-all-anticipated sequel to the tepid, poorly animated 2001 film.
For comedy value there is little to choose between the expensive antics here and the primitive spy charade enacted by apes in the 1970s TV series Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp.
A dog's breakfast.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
The Revenge of Kitty Galore (in 3D) is loud, colourful and silly enough to tickle the 5- to 10-year-old target group, but only for about half its length.
This uncalled-for sequel to the mediocre 2001 talking-pets affair Cats & Dogs is all needless noise and second-rate CGI gunk, and never, ever funny in any sense of the word.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
While the jokes are obvious, this fun family film has a big heart, an element missing from the recent slew of kids' movies about animals.
Passes the way a pet lover hopes euthanasia goes for their beloved feline or canine-a blur of motion, moments drifting by in a numbing fog, then the blissful end, free of pain at last. A forgettable, clunky CGI tinkertoy.
Let me be direct about this: I gave "this a half-star because it contains cute animals and, at the end, there are entertaining clips of animals that aren't in the movie.
| Original Score: .5/4
It's beneath any cat to be sprayed repeatedly with a water bottle, or completely shaved, let alone dubbed by Bette Midler.
You have to strive for that kind of failure
| Original Score: D
Winds its way towards its conclusion with scant imagination, except in a purely technical sense.
Unlike the original it's too talky and chaotic to engage with either kids or adults.
If we are going to put words in the mouths of furballs, they surely have to be funnier than these.
