    Terrible, terrible, terrible film. Why was this even made?
  • January 11, 2012
    The action is cute, to be sure, but the cuteness wore off quickly for this adult.

    It really is just for kids.
    I'm all for talking animals, but this was a bit much. I only watched it because I was stuck on an 11 hour flight.

    Mildly entertaining for a dumb action kids movie. I enjoyed the first one much more than this. Some funny parts, but didn't work for me(although I may have the mindset of a child, I'm not 5 anymore :-p ) If you want to watch talking dogs get either the first one or "Marmaduk... read moree," both much better. Heck, even "G-Force" was better than this.

    Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore is the sequel of 2001 Cats and Dogs, it tells the story of Kitty Galore, formerly an agent for cat spy organization MEOWS, has gone rogue and hatched a diabolical plan to not only bring her canine enemies to heel, but take down her forme... read morer kitty comrades and make the world her scratching post. Faced with this unprecedented threat, cats and dogs will be forced to join forces for the first time in history in an unlikely alliance to save themselves and their humans. Unlike the first one that was original and enjoyable, this one pretends to be funny without achieving it, the characters aren't as credible someone would think, the story isn't very good and the plot isn't very well developed. The cast is good in names. Chris O'Donnell and Jack McBrayer in live action characters and the voices of Neil Patrick Harris, Bette Midler, Joe Pantoliano, Sean Hayes, James Marsden, Christina Applegate and Nick Nolte. In conclusion, the movie may attract little kids for a period of time with some moments of humor but that's it.

    Obviously this movie is bad. A sequel to a lukewarm family film from nine years ago, the chances were slim that Cats and Dogs 2: The Revenge of Kitty Galore would have ever worked. They don't even have the temerity to have the subtitle read "Pussy Galore" for fear that repeating... read more the most famous Bond girl name might cause parents discomfort. It's a live-action talking-animal movie that posits that cats and dogs have been fighting an ages-old feud and they all have secret lairs and technology at their service despite lacking opposable thumbs. Really, premise alone you're already lowering the standards, and with standards firmly and securely lowered, you may even laugh once or twice (that's probably about it). It depends on how susceptible to puns you are because that is the primary joke vehicle. The film makes an attempt to throw animals into a Bond-styled action thriller with, pardon me, shaggy results. The character animation is poor, the dialogue feels like it was stitched from one groan-worthy pun after another, and yet Cats and Dogs 2 doesn't offend with its sheer badness. Premise alone, you sort of watch the thing in a vegetative state.

    I kind of enjoyed this. I liked the original 9 years ago, and this kept the same feel and sense of humor. The human actors are just a distraction to the spy like efforts of the cats and dogs, and there are no characters as funny as some of the cats in the original. The CGI, real ... read moreanimals, and puppetry, comes together most of the time, and it doesn't matter when it looks a bit ridiculous. The brief segments of Sean Hayes proves that he was the driving force of the original, and he should have been a main focus here. Like most childish children's films, there are many annoying characters and a lot of lame jokes, which had me groaning and sighing. Probably a bit too long went by between this and the original. Luckily, it allows new viewers to slip right in.

    Watch it just for fun... And this movie gave a little fun to me while I'm watching it... The story can be said a little predictable with a lot of unimportant moments, which is supposed to be funny but sometimes it doesn't... Just surprised how many good cast lend their voice in t... read morehis movie like Neil Patrick Harris, James Marsden, Sean Hayes, Roger Moore, and Joe Pantoliano, with a leading performance from Chris O'Donnell...

    [Sorry for any mistakes. Just a bunch of rushed thoughts]

    Well, let me start by saying this: It has been almost a decade since the release of the first film and one of the biggest mistakes the people behind this sequal made was waiting so long to make this one. By now, so many p... read moreeople have forgotten about the first movie and probably didn't even realize this was a sequal until seeing this. I mean, I only knew because a friend of mine reminded me while we saw the trailer in the theatre. I mean, if this came out two or three years after the first it would've have been a big deal, but 9 years is just so long. And as for all the kids who saw it [including me] when the first came out nine years ago, we don't wanna see this all-grown-up. And kids now probably didn't even know about the first until this movie. Sure, kids will getta kick out of this animal action-packed sequal.

    I mean, I guess at the same time them waiting so long isn't a big deal because this is much different than the first. All the main characters are mostly different...except for three. Mr. Tinkles [the evil cat from the first] is a minior character in this and the hero dog, Lou, is in this movie as well, but I wouldn't cast him as a main character. As for the kids, no, you probably don't have to see the first film.

    I do remember liking the first when I was a kid, but I dislike it now. So, anyone over the age of nine probably won't like this movie. As for little kiddies, they'll love it. Its a good movie to take the kids too.

    I just didn't find the story to be interesting. Some of the dog/cat jokes were actually kinda clever and I did find myself smirking at them but in the end this was just a terrible movie.

    SPOILER: Oh, and based on the ending, there will be a third. Just warning...

    Overall, a good film for the kids but rating this movie as a whole, no, its nothing special. Its a little too cheesy for my taste and some of it just a little over-the-top.

    this wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. i thought it would be horribly painful but it wasn't. it was okay. there's nothing special or even really good here but it's not horribly boring either. there were a few parts that made me smile and one part that made me laugh but that... read more was about it. it got boring in parts but in others it was entertaining enough to were you weren't bored. overall if you have kids then this isn't too bad and it's good enough to sit through but the movie is really cliche and there isn't anything new here.

The script suggests it was developed on the hoof; the CGI is low grade stuff; and the human performances are loathsome. Full Review

Dogs and cats are far funnier and more engaging when they behave like, well, dogs and cats. Full Review

The kitties and puppies are cute to look at, no doubt, but your average cat on YouTube is far more charming than anything in this kitty litter. Full Review

Better than the original Cats & Dogs. But so is a rabies shot. Full Review

The notion of pets leading a double life has been much tapped for family movies, and the kid-friendly spy genre has been wrung dry. Full Review

It's with the ostensibly adult humor that the picture gets into trouble. ... This funny-animal man saw a lot of potential go to waste ... Full Review

Mostly, though, Kitty Galore is a grind, as well as proof that "What up, dog?" isn't any funnier when a pigeon says it to a dog. Full Review
