- 'All Dogs Go to Heaven' is a 1989 animation film directed and produced by Don Bluth (An American Tale, Land Before Time). Another childhood classic, although it did seem better when I watched it as a child. The film tells the story of German Sheppard Charlie, who's murdered by his associate and goes to Heaven. There he learns that he has done no good In his life. With the voices of Burt Reynolds (Deliverance, The Longest Yard) and Dom DeLuise (The Cannonball Run, Haunted Honeymoon).

New Orleans 1939, German Sheppard Charlie (Reynolds) escapes from the dog pound with the help of his nervous friend Itchy (DeLuise). The two go to the casino of Charlie's associate Carface. While Itchy gets lost inside the hallways, Charlie gets drunk and gets murdered by Carface. When arriving in Heaven, Charlie learns that he has done nothing good with his life. Determined to set the record straight, he returns to Earth. Together with Itchy he forces his way into Carface's casino. They stumble upon an orphan girl named Anne-Marie, who is able to talk to animals. With her help, the dogs want to get rich and build a casino of their own. But the longer Charlie takes to do something good, the less change he'll get to return to Heaven...

I recall seeing bits & pieces of "All Dogs Go To Heaven" when I was a child in the 1990s & I thought it was alright. After seeing the entire film recently, I can say it's not very good (especially by Don Bluth standards). For starters, the use of smoking, drinking, & gambling is a bit much for a children's film; there's also the use of attempted murder. Most of the characters (except for the innocent Anne-Marie) are rather obnoxious toward one another that you couldn't tell if they really care at all. The songs aren't appealing, either. In conclusion, I thought "All Dogs Go To Heaven 2" had a little more heart & plot. That said, "All Dogs Go To Heaven" is not really the ideal family film, even if it tried to have some heart & caring moments.

Don Bluth made a movie about dogs that are ghosts and help a little girl, awesomeness!

A beautiful, nostalgic film that touches the heart and makes the audience laugh healthily. Definitely a movie for everyone to watch at least 10 times. Essential to a childhood.

Great fun.

Typical Don Bluth to make entertaining media with a sense of seriousness.

Probably another of my favorite of Don Bluth's work
There are some dark moments within the movie,and how it displays alcohol and drugs the characters use,but Mr. Bluth does his best to at least give a little hint that this is not only for kids but for teens and adults.
The dark and scary moments,including Charlie's nightmare scene is a bit too much to be stuck in the child's mind for some time - but as I watch this movie again,it's not so bad.

All in all,Don Bluth's best work

As well written as it is touching, All Dogs Go To Heaven is a fitting and worthy member of Don Bluth's line of memorable classics. If I had to say ANYTHING negative about this film, its that it was probably too avant guarde for it's audience.

A loving film that showcased what true friendship and redemtion really is. Rounded off with good acting by Burt Renolds this is a film that family's will enjoy for years.

All Dogs Go To Heaven, is one of those movies where you either love it, or you hate it. Me? I thought it was disappointing. It's not the worst movie I saw, but it can't hold a candle to Don Bluth's better films like The Secret of Nihm or The Land Before Time. Also, I didn't like the character of Charlie the German Shepard. I kinda thought he was a dick. I know that's the point, but it makes him more mean spirited than charming. And he ends up saving the day at the end.

another jewel in the don bluth library all dogs go to heaven is heart warming, beautifully animated, and carries that don bluth charm plus who can argue with the magical voice of don deluise. this may not be on the same level as land before time but its well worth a watch and even an add to your collection.

The movie had a few poorly written parts and wasn't exactly solid, but it's heartwarming nonetheless and can make an excellent addition to any kid's childhood.

The mature themes of gambling, death, revenge, and crime may not be suitable to younger viewers, but All Dogs Go to Heaven represents the Sullivan Bluth Studios last quality film. Sharp animation and a well rounded anti-hero makes this an enjoyable little film.

This movie feels like your watching both an animated and gangster film. This movie has 2 theme and that is love and caring. The song " Love survives" was a sad song because it reminds of you when someone dies. Well judith barsi, the voice of the little girl, died a year before the film was released. The song was dedicated to her. This is a movie that your kids might want to watch. And by the way, RIP Judith, your in a better place now.
