Charlie travels to Heaven, and is promptly warned that if he heads back to Earth, he can never return; he does decide to go back to Earth, however, to exact revenge on Carface, who has kidnapped Anne-Marie, a little orphan girl who can talk to Animals. The film also includes the vocal skills of Dom DeLuise, Charles Nelson Reilly, Vic Tayback, Melba Moore, Loni Anderson, and a host of others. All Dogs Go to Heaven was the first production of the Dublin-based Sullivan Bluth Studios. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi|

Maybe all dogs go to heaven, but this movie goes to hell.

I didn't like this movie when I was a kid, mostly because I didn't like dog movies, but maybe I'd watch it again sometime if it was on TV to see if I still think it's a bad movie.

I LOVED this movie as a kid. In a re watch, um, is this supposed to be a kid's movie? Cause there is no way in hell it is. Subjects include: drinking, smoking, gambling and murder!
But still, I never minded it as a kid, so more power to Don Bluth for that. So beautiful and endearing.

All Dogs Go To Heaven is a sure kids classic adventure! By the time it ends, I want it to be just beginning. Not perfect, but brilliant!

The starting was pretty boring and made me not wanted to watch more, but my curiosity wanted to watch the whole of it and I'm glad that I did. But the song and the making of this movie was bad. It could have been better. There was many flaws in this movie, but I kinda liked it. R.I.P Judith Barsi. Her voice was really cute.

Burt Reynolds has never looked better.

Beautiful and colorful Don Bluth Animation. A better dog movie than "101 Dalmatians". Somewhat forgettable.

Somewhat morbid kiddie crap.

All Dogs Go to Heaven brings some darker themes and characters then Bluth's earlier film (An American Tale, The Land Before Time) it is a mixed bag with some great/poor animation sequence. All Dogs Go to Heaven is the medium film between the lucrative and successful Bluth features and his panned flops. Dogs had mixed reactions and under-performed at the box-office, but was a hit on video. Even if you're trying to be edgy and un-Disney Burt Reynolds should probably not be voicing your lead character in a family film. A bit of a cult classic the film is borderline entertainment at best.

Disney Movie #24: All Dogs Go to Heaven
I'd seen this one before, a long,long,long time ago on Disney's family channel. It's charming characters is what makes the film. With a somewhat dull plot, All Dogs Go To Heaven will win you over with it's characters and the important message hat it holds. Altogether, it may not be Disney's greatest, but it's a mediocre little film that will be touching and interesting for the whole family.

a very naughty, unfunny film that offers nothing to watch. D+

Another childhood classic I've recently revisited as an adult and was a little disappointed. I know as a child you tend to remember movies being better than they actually were but having said that I wasn't completely upset. The film, even with it's dated transfer on blu-ray, still brought me back to my third grade classroom where I first saw it. I remember those days and for a nostalgic film that is something special. I still enjoyed the darker tone of Bluth's film and the heartfelt story that still manages to emerge. Still worth a watch all these years later. Recommended for Bluth fans or those that have a fond spot for All Dogs Go to Heaven from your youth.

ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN provides a surprisingly dark story involving gambling, drinking, deceit, crime, greed, murder and hell. Set in a dreary junkyard of New Orleans, the movie starts out when Charlie, a lovable rough-and-tumble German shepherd, is tricked and murdered by his gambling casino partner, a diabolical, cigar-puffing pit-bull, Carface. Before you know it, Charlie finds himself in heaven and yes, there was an actual portrayal of heaven and hell.
However Charlie steals his way back to Earth and plots to get even with Car-face for revenge rather than staying. With the reluctant help of his dachshund pal Itchy, Charlie "rescues" Car-face's prize, a little Orphan girl, Anne Marie held captive because of her amazing ability to talk to all species of animals, which helps her predict who will win the races. Charlie claims that he will help the little cutie find her a family, but in reality he is using her skills to win fortunes at the race so that he can build a more elaborate casino of his own to bring Car-face down. Although he refuses to admit it, Charlie does grow to love Anne Marie. The ending was adorable and sad, and even made my eyes fill up.

Love all of these movies.

Can't remember it very much, 'nuff said. However I do have a warm feeling towards this film and I do recall the moving ending.

A suberb way of approach in dealing with so many questions from a child in dealing with death of dear ones such as a pet dog.
