The script suggests it was developed on the hoof; the CGI is low grade stuff; and the human performances are loathsome.

Dogs and cats are far funnier and more engaging when they behave like, well, dogs and cats.

The kitties and puppies are cute to look at, no doubt, but your average cat on YouTube is far more charming than anything in this kitty litter.

Better than the original Cats & Dogs. But so is a rabies shot.

The notion of pets leading a double life has been much tapped for family movies, and the kid-friendly spy genre has been wrung dry.

If there are moments that aspire to the smart satire of the Austin Powers franchise, they're fleeting.

It's with the ostensibly adult humor that the picture gets into trouble. ... This funny-animal man saw a lot of potential go to waste ...

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.

It succeeds as a modestly funny midsummer diversion.

Exploits every cliché with abundant good cheer and an admirable, unapologetic ridiculousness.

The only wit on display here is Roger Moore plummily intoning the phrase "butt-sniffing."

Having real animals speak through the hideous magic of CGI is inherently creepy, and it's depressing to hear kitty and doggy thoughts come out so banal and jokey.

About as unremarkable as a film about talking animals organized into competing intelligence agencies can be.

For grown-ups, kids, dogs, cats -- whoever's watching, there's enough here to keep them entertained.

No movie -- whether aimed at adults or kids or canines themselves -- has the right to be as tiresome and unoriginal as this action-comedy mutt.

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."

None of the satirical touches are ever allowed to impede the pic's madcap pace from one raucous setpiece to the next.

Too many frantic CGI critters ruin this spy movie with pets.
