Good movie

I took my 5 and 7 year old boys to see this movie. I laughed and even though there is a few minor indiscretions, nothing is implied sexually. It was a laugh for all of us. It held my attention with all the referances and held the boys attention with all the action. The movie has a positve message about people of different origins (in this case, cats and dogs) working together to accomplish a goal. It was great for all us.

Crap.... stupid... in a "G" movie

Why does a "G" movie have to have the words crap and stupid in the span of 5 minutes? I don't consider myself a prude, but I do NOT need my kids copying this language. Very disappointed.

This movie is absolutely disgusting. It makes me embarassed just looking at a poster. I can't even watch the trailer, it's too terrible. This should never have been made into a movie. It should have been burned when it was stilll a manuscript. The jokes make me feel sick they're so bad. Anyone who watches it will be going so low they might as well just jump in a hole.

The movie works on two levels. If you've watched a certain number of secret agent movies, you can enjoy spotting the visual references (like a supervillain lowering the hero & heroine slowly towards a tank, shades of _Live & Let Die_). If not, you can just enjoy the over-the-top action sequences & the animal cuteness. Fortunately, in our family we like both secret agents and cute furry animals, so we all had fun with this one. Although there are intense action scenes that may scare some younger children (including one cat taking off his fur & revealing himself as a Terminator-like robot), on the whole I thought the movie bent over backwards not to be upsetting: mad or incorrigible dogs only risk "the kennels," not euthanasia, and even the supervillain falls from a great height not to death but to humiliation. Some of the CGI is a bit creepy, as well as a bit unsatisfying to my tastes; it makes me nostalgic for the older breed of animal movie, like _That Darn Cat_ or _Benji_, that filmed the animals' natural expressiveness rather than superimposing humanoid facial expressions on them. It's not a great classic, but it's a fun movie of its kind, with a nice message: you can overcome prejudice and make friends with someone who's different from you.

Put it on the Netflix list for the kids

I watched it with my son and his friend. The whole movie is based around talking animals. How more unbelievable can you get. But over we liked it. Yea its cheesy, but if it can keep my sons attention it cant be all bad.

Pretty mundane for an adult, and would be embarrassing to an adolescent. My 4 year old daughter found the explosions scary, a little uneased by most scenes with Kitty Galore and the Hannibal Lecter/Mr Tinkles scene in Alcatraz a little upsetting. She enjoyed it overall - leaving the theater very upbeat - but I think if she'd been a year or so older it would have been fine.

Not great.

I took my kids ages 7, 9 and 14 to this movie and they were all bored with it. The storyline was pitiful.

Homage to Hannibal the Cannibal

The animals and action is the obvious attraction. But there was a lot of evil going on, and some of it inappropriate and/or unnecessary. The white kitty "Hannibal the Cannibal" take-off was gratuitous and scary in a way that my 8 year old couldn't articulate, but she sensed the BAD there. I just didn't like the movie at all. Re: Common Sense review and good role models, the only good bit was how the good animals watched out for each other and learned to work together as a team.

Lots of laughs for a seven year old boy. He hasn't stopped talking about it. Harmless fun, with kid fun being about all it has to offer. Lots of scenes seemed designed for 3D, but 2D was just fine for us.

Nice kids movie.

The movie has a predictable plot, but is entertaining enough. My 6 year old grand-daughter enjoyed it and was able to retell the story to her mom. We weren't disappointed.
