Overview

This talking-animal action comedy from Lawrence Guterman, the co-director of Antz (1998), follows on the heels of the Babe and Dr. Dolittle films. Unknown to humans, a secret war has been raging between cats and dogs for eons, but a fragile truce has long held the order of the animal kingdom in place. Now the balance of power has tipped, as a researcher, Professor Brody (Jeff Goldblum), is about to invent a vaccine that will erase all human allergies to dogs. This is too much for the autocratic Mr. Tinkles (Sean Hayes), a white Persian kitty bent on world domination. The Brody home becomes ground zero for the renewed conflict between feline and canine, with a young Beagle puppy named Lou (Tobey Maguire) caught in the middle as the new point man for his species' cause. Cats and Dogs co-stars Elizabeth Perkins and Alexander Pollock, as well as the vocal talents of Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Jon Lovitz, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Joe Pantoliano.

Here's the basic summary: Dog, man's best friend, fighting the evil, manical schemes of Mr. Tinkles and his feline followers... Lou, who's the star of the show, is the cute puppy, the hero! No such luck for the cats, all big, burly, ferocious creatures! Can't the cats ever be the good guys? Why are dogs are always the glorious heroes! I just get tired of it! This movie would have been deserving of 5 stars with its comedy and wit, had it only had at least one friendly, cuddly kitten!

A really witty and fun look at an alternate history of dog and cat "domestication". It all makes sense now. I've often wondered why a dog will defend you but a cat will leave you to your destiny and hope things work out. It's because cats are trying to take over the world!! I really enjoyed this movie for the excellent voice over acting, especially Sean Hayes, Jon Lovitz and Joe Pantoliano. Come on all you cat lovers, give this film the five stars it deserves!! Dogs rule!

I am not usually a fan of this type of film, but the clever dialogue and a wonderfully twisted performance by Sean Hayes as the evil Mr. Tinkles has made this a film that I have enjoyed multiple times. Lobbing one assassin after another at an unsuspecting family, he finally has to resort the unforgettable Russian Blue. Smartly, the movie has a short enough running time that the premise does not run out of steam before its climax. The movie manages to riff on several James Bond film and even James Camerons's "Aliens." It even pokes fun at its own premise in such scenes as when one of the characters is told to defuse a bomb by pulling the red wire and he complains that he can't because dogs a colour blind. Not Oscar material but consistently amusing and at times down right funny.

This movie was good except for the evil cats. The cats SHOULD conquer the world, now THAT would be a good movie! (or it could AT LEAST have had a rebel cat, or something, that was on the dogs' side!)

The film is hilarious in some places and mind numbing in the others. Mr Tinkles was the highlight of the film, he was a pure act of genious! The human actors never really came up to scratch, but I do not blame the actors, more the script! Jeff Goldblum is a brilliant actor, but not in this film! The voice overs were excellent, especially those of Mr Tinkles, I really loved that cat!

this movie gave a bad name to cats and dogs globally. I will now list all the qualities that it lacks: unpredictability, a plot, character development, intelligent filming, a climax, protagonist etc.
