Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (2010, G)
Well, the official website for "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty
Galore" has a paw for a mouse pointer, the movie uses most every lazy
pun possible about pets, and a reviewer has already claimed the movie
marks the end of civilization as we know it. With such prospects, a
film about talking cats and dogs coming together to fight off Kitty
Galore (voiced by Bette Midler) doesn't eye well for adults. And it
doesn't. Any mathematicians in the theater can better spend their time
tracking the noticeable upward curve of boredom and silliness the
longer the movie runs (the pet gags during the end credits don't
count). Aren't kids movies like this supposed to be funny despite their
absurdity? It took 9 years to bring this sequel of "Cats & Dogs" to the
theaters, which gave it plenty of time to spread a wide umbrella for
big name voices. Nick Nolte's deep scratchy voice took to the end
credits to figure out, but it stands out as the old scrappy mentor dog,
Butch, the muscle of a secret agency run by semi-intelligent talking
dogs. We learn that dogs have an underground spy organization where no
human has ever entered, appropriately outfitted with hi-tech gadgets in
the Bond tradition and specially tailored for dog puns. Cats have a
similar underground facility for their secret organization, named
MEOWS. The first pet puns are quirky and tone setting, but after the
third or fourth and when combined with lame cultural references
(including Hannibal Lecter and who knows what else), it becomes
The plot is adequately thin and senseless. The main character, a German
shepherd police dog named Diggs (James Marsden), joins a band of
unlikely heroes to try to protect humans from Kitty Galore's evil
plans. After Diggs takes down a madman, who was holding car dealers
hostage (one of the most believable scenes in the movie), and sets off
the man's bomb, he's recruited into the dog spy organization by Butch
(Nick Nolte). Diggs and Butch, with the dog agency, reluctantly join
teams with a top kitty agent for MEOWs, Catherine (Christina
Applegate). Along for the ride is a pea brained pigeon, Seamus (Katt
Williams), to provide a bit of comic relief.
They battle against Kitty Galore (voiced by Bette Midler), a hairless
Sphinx cat, who has sinister plans to enslave humans and take over the
world. Her plan is to use malevolent sound waves, from a weapon called
"The Call of the Wild", by the way, at an ultra low frequency (just for
dogs) to trigger all dogs to violently rebel against humans. Humans
will have to lock them all in kennels. But the movie forgets to mention
how Kitty Galore intends to conquer humans. Will she change the
frequencies and use the weapon on us? She doesn't specify, but perhaps
she could change to an appropriate frequency to trigger our caveman
impulses, or something.
Kitty Galore is funny as she reluctantly placates her not so magical
magician owner. She became evil because her previous owners treated her
like a freak and threw her out after she fell into a vat of hair
removal cream (like the Joker from "Batman"). The movie has a couple
other funny moments with a house filled of too-lazy-to-move high cats,
and a goofy Calico cat voiced by Wallace Shawn (lampooning his role in
"The Princess Bride"). Other stars take part in hopes of success,
including Neil Patrick Harris, Roger Moore, and Joe Pantoliano, but it
doesn't help much.
Some of the most effective scenes are ones where pets give normal pet
reactions. The audience actually responded to Diggs whimpering as he
was locked in his cage by his former cop partner, played by Chris
O'Donnell. The pets only pretend to act normal around humans, but on
occasion a little girl stumbles on them talking. She's amazed, no one
believes her, and the pets resort to clichés (butt sniffing for dogs).
That's it. Most of the other jokes are dull. The movie becomes so lazy,
any action is just meaningless and boring. The movie uses a mix of live
action animals, puppetry, and computer animation to bring the pets to
life. The CGI mouths attempt to make such absurdity seem real, but who
cares when what they say isn't funny or interesting. The 3D wasn't very
noticeable at all.

Karate Kid is an excellent movie.
wow thats the great movie.
Ignore the nay-sayers, it's a fun, cute film.
It's not quite up to par with the original, but this film still holds
its own. This is fun to watch, and is rather clever and has its own
gags, making fun of some of the gags from the earlier film. As with the
earlier movie, there are homages to classic pictures. There are also
some lessons dealing with getting along and obedience without beating
the children over the head with them. This is an entertaining movie and
one that is for the entire family and one hundred percent enjoyable.
I'm forty-six and laughed all the way through it. If you're looking for
a Best Picture Winner, forget it. If you're looking for something you
can show your kids, this is it..
