Plenty of heart and hijinks mixed with litter box humor.

...juvenile caricature the whole way, so adults had better beware.

Cats & Dogs is, at its absolute peak, faintly amusing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Mr Tinkles has to endure the humiliation of being dressed up in ridiculous outfits by his eccentric owner, meaning that he gets to deliver lines such as "EVIL%u2026does NOT wear a BONNET!"

Those incredible animals steal the show here -- just like in 'Babe.'

On paper, it may have looked like 'Cats and Dogs' would prove a winner with both children and adults. Maybe even another 'Babe'. Something, however, obviously went seriously wrong between the drawing board and the transformation to celluloid.

Falls victim to a common pitfall of special-effects movies: The technology takes precedent over the characters and story.

There are movies intended solely for kids and movies intended for kids but also enjoyable for adults. Cats and Dogs falls into the former category.

It's tough to warm up to a pig, or a goose, or an orangutan for that matter. Therefore, "Cats & Dogs" is the "Babe" of the summer, only it's more familiar, more action-packed and just plain funnier!

What begins as a mildly amusing joke eventually blooms into full-fledged lunacy, as sky-diving ninja cats duke it out with dogs who have "Mission: Impossible"-style computers hidden inside their doghouses.

Perros y Gatos es una película 100% para niños; me refiero a verdaderos niños, es decir, menores de diez años.

Cats and Dogs may be playing the same game as Spy Kids, but it isn't in the same league. What it does have is a comparable level of rollicking energy…

A surprisingly witty and sophisticated spy movie spoof that will tickle adult pet lovers and still capture kids 6 and older with its boy-and- his-dog love story and pet slapstick.
