Movie Info

Milo is a kitten, Otis is a dog. When Milo gets into a small box with the intention of taking a trip down a river, Otis follows. En route, the stars encounter bad weather, life-threatening situations, and even potential mates. Original made for Japanese TV under the title Koneko Monogatari, The Adventures of Milo and Otis contained some intense scenes that were edited out for Western audiences. For American consumption, the film was pared down to a G-rated 75 minutes, with a new comic narration added, written by Mark Saltzman and delivered by Dudley Moore. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Granted this is a film aimed at the younger set, say ages 3-6, but still I would have hoped for more.

Cuteness, cuteness and more cuteness - but not cute enough.

Nothing like watching cute animals getting killed on screen by Japanese for American kicks. Still, first movie I ever cried in. I soothed myself by saying it was movie tricks, but upon re-watching they totally just freaking slaughtered lots and lots of puppies and kitties.
