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
The film feels underdeveloped and 'under-imagined.'
This chatty 3D spy spoof is as hard-pressed for laughs as Marmaduke, once you get past the novelty of "Hey, the dogs and cats are TALKING."
| Original Score: 1.5/4
You have to strive for that kind of failure
| Original Score: D
Lacks much of the sense of fun that made the original film a blast.
A boring, terrible looking cinematic mess on the carpet threatening the series for good.
| Original Score: 1/5
Mostly, though, Kitty Galore is a grind, as well as proof that "What up, dog?" isn't any funnier when a pigeon says it to a dog.
Now here's a film there's absolutely no excuse for.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Too many frantic CGI critters ruin this spy movie with pets.
Lightly amusing but doggone derivative, the film bombards the audience with jokes, action and effects to produce an overstuffed experience that rarely enchants.
Tolerably spoofs staples like 007 and The Silence of the Lambs.
| Original Score: 2/4
A dog's breakfast.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
A lazy, painfully dull, unfunny and nauseatingly silly action comedy that should have gone direct-to-DVD.
| Original Score: 3.55/10
Four-year-olds - and 34-year-olds - deserve better.
A low-rent cobble-job of the very slackest order.
Cats and dogs working together for the greater good? Woof.
| Original Score: 1/4
No matter that the film felt lumpish and witless, I have to say that the kids at the preview laughed a lot.
Why isn't there a group that protects moviegoers from films like Cats & Dogs? Something like: The Don't Underestimate Moviegoer Brainpower Society - or DUMBS.
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
