James Bond Better Watchout For Cats And Dogs

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. Great movie title but the funniest part of this movie you can see is in the previews. This movie is excellent for the younger generation but, as for the adults you probably will get a little bored with it. When I first saw the previews I could not wait until it came out but, now that I have seen it I am glad that I did not waste my money at the theater.  Don't get me wrong my daughter did enjoy the movie on DVD, but my wife and I sat through hoping that it would come to a quick end.

This is rated PG and this movie is one hour and 22 minutes long. It has a lot of comedic acts and action and it is made with a family setting in mind. There are a lot of very big name actors and actresses involved in the making of this movie. This was directed by Brad Peyton and produced by Polly Cohen, Andrew Lazar, Greg Michael, and Brent O'Conner. It was written by Ron Friedman, Steve Bencich, John Requa, and Glenn Ficarra.

Stars
This is not just the "Cats and Dogs" movie, if you want to see this one you must make sure that it also says "Revenge of Kitty Galore" starring Bette Midler (voice of Kitty Galore the undercover menacing bald cat, rogue agent), James Marsden (voice of Diggs, the majestic German Shepherd Police dog), Christine Applegate (voice of Catherine a M.E.O.W.S. cat agent), Katt Williams (voice of a pigeon called Seamus an informant of Kitty Galore's), Chris O'Donnell (plays the part of Diggs Master), Nick Nolte and Neil Patrick Harris (are the voices of Butch a desk jockey and Lou a retired agent), Roger Moore (voice of Tab Lazenby (no relation to the Charles Lazenby in the 007 movie)an agent of M.E.O.W.S.), Wallace Shawn (is the voice of the middle cat Calico), Sean Hayes (voice of a convicted villainous informant locked up in Alcatraz Island called Tinkles), a couple of other voices the need mentioning are Joe Pantoliano (voice of Peek) and Michael Clarke Duncan (voice of Sam). They did have some real people parts and they include Chris O'Donnell as Shane, Jack McBrayer as Chuck, Fred Armisen as Freidrich, and Kiernan Shipka as the little girl.

Experience
In my book any movie that puts a smile on my daughters face is okay with me. Even if I get bored while we are watching it. There is no profanity or nudity, unless you count the fact when Kitty Galore takes off her furry skin and you see a naked cat. This is just like a make believe James Bond novel but with Cats and Dogs joining forced to beat the evil Kitty Galore.

If you know what each person looks like in real life then the animals kind of resemble them. That is a little eerie, watching a cat and dog look like real people. They have a lot of action scenes where they are flying through the air and parachuting down and breaking into houses undetected. They have to act just like real spies and find clues and fight the bad Kitty Galore. She continues to evade capture and eludes them with her disguise. They also have to decode messages that are being sent to them and just like a CSI movie they see things that the folks home do not see unless pointed to us.  

Conclusion
I don't want to give up too much about this move, because my daughter did enjoy it immensely even though I did get a little bored with it. I still enjoyed sitting down in the afternoon and watching this with my daughter and having some quality time with her. Who knows maybe it was just me, and I am not a critic but you have to see this for yourself you be the judge but it is safe for all of the little kids to see.

"Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore" is harmless and innocent. It doesn't tell much of a story, but it certainly has plenty of special effects for younger audiences to gawk at, especially since just about all of them involve the titular house pets. It is, of course, the sequel to the 2001 hit "Cats & Dogs," which was founded on the premise that cats and dogs have been at war with each other for centuries; the fight continues, although I seriously doubt that the story has progressed in real …

About this movie

Wiki

A definite improvement over the original 2001Cats & Dogs,Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galoreis a brand-new story about an underground world of animal intelligence, featuring cat spy agency M.E.O.W.S., a dog intelligence agency, and even a pigeon. They find themselves in the unlikely position of joining forces against renegade M.E.O.W.S. agent Kitty Galore as she seeks revenge against dogs and humans in a plan that will destroy the human race and allow her to rule the world. This 3-D film is a blend of live action, puppetry, and animation, and the combination of better writing and a cast of talented voice artists makes the animal spies in this sequel much more believable than in the previous film. Kitty Galore is unlikable to the core and Bette Midler is absolutely perfect in the role. Neil Patrick Harris is highly effective as Lou, head of the dog agency; James Marsden plays the conflicted police-dog-turned-new-recruit Diggs; Nick Nolte plays fellow canine agent Butch; Christina Applegate is M.E.O.W.S. agent Catherine; and Katt Williams as Seamus does a great pigeon. The unlikely cooperation between canine, feline, and bird leads to an action-adventure that takes the agents from dark back alleys to a cat house run by a cat lady pushing catnip and even a local carnival. The action scenes will hold the interest of most children ages 6 to 12, though many of the adults in the crowd may find them rather on the slow side, and kids and adults alike will chuckle at the ...
