Critics Consensus

A great concept, but the movie fails to develop the characters and some of the jokes are hit-or-miss.

Movie Info

This talking-animal action comedy from Lawrence Guterman, the co-director of Antz (1998), follows on the heels of the Babe and Dr. Dolittle films. Unknown to humans, a secret war has been raging between cats and dogs for eons, but a fragile truce has long held the order of the animal kingdom in place. Now the balance of power has tipped, as a researcher, Professor Brody (Jeff Goldblum), is about to invent a vaccine that will erase all human allergies to dogs. This is too much for the autocratic Mr. Tinkles (Sean Hayes), a white Persian kitty bent on world domination. The Brody home becomes ground zero for the renewed conflict between feline and canine, with a young Beagle puppy named Lou (Tobey Maguire) caught in the middle as the new point man for his species' cause. Cats and Dogs co-stars Elizabeth Perkins and Alexander Pollock, as well as the vocal talents of Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Jon Lovitz, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Joe Pantoliano.

    Used to love this when I was a kid it seems silly now but I still find it pretty fun and a good time waster.

    The film's concept is quite interesting and Im sure a lot of people would have loved the idea of it. But the film itself is a complete mess. The jokes aren't that great and are rather hit and miss for all the family including the children. There's no development into the character of both the humans and the pet animals.
