I had the pleasure of checking out this Disney Movie this past weekend. Let me just say if you have a little one who is into Dogs as much as my little one is I am sure you can relate with this review.
My little one LOVES Dog/Puppy Movies!!!! Oliver and Company, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 1, etc. If it has puppies in it you will find it in our library. So when I received in the mail Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 we had to immediately stop what we were doing and watch it.
Over the course of the weekend I can say I have seen this movie about 15 times. Some directly and some indirectly. Having you computer in the family room makes for enjoying all the cartoons and movies a toddler watches. UGH!
While the movie doesn’t have a single soul from the previous film and I can only identify the voice of George Lopez as the sole returning cast member as Papi that doesn’t bode well for those hoping for a return of Drew Barrymoore, Jamie Lee Curtis, Andy Garcia and many more.
To a child these stars do not matter but for me I dislike it when you have new actors playing the parts of established characters. I can’t think of one movie this has worked. I think Disney should have gone with a new story line all together that way there isn’t this weirdness. The actors in the movie do a great job considering that have that big shoes to fill.
There are many of new celebs that make appearances in this film, you have seen most of them before but none really stand out. Which is ok considering the Dogs steal the show, and boy are they cute.
Story is decent and on par for a kids film. No major surprises and I will say it isn’t to long so it will keep your kids attention.
Would I run out and buy this film? Probably not, unless you kid is a Puppy Fanatic like mine. I would suggest adding it to your Netflix or Redbox box it one time for your little one. I am sure they will get a chuckle or two but don’t expect this movie to turn any heads, even little ones.
