This Sequel Marks Humans as the Lone Losers - We Have to Watch It
James Marsden, Nick Nolte, Katt Williams, Bette Midler
It has been almost a decade since we last checked in on the age-old battle between cats and dogs, and things are getting a little hairy. A crazed feline has taken things into her own paws, prompting both sides to go to extraordinary measures for the sake of our planet. That is right, the two natural born enemies are banning together to take down the corrupt and evil Kitty Galore in a fight that could put an end to both species.
It should be noted that although the characters from the 2001 original return for Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore few of the human actors who voiced them chose the same route. This didn’t hold back Director Brad Peyton as he acquired some impressive talent in the form of Neil Patrick Harris, Nick Nolte and Christina Applegate. Unforttunately, even with their contributions, this film is not good - at all.
I will admit that The Revenge of Kitty Galore is a huge step up from the original. But in all honesty, that wasn't a hard feat. Katt Williams really makes the film what it is as the one-winged pigeon Seamus. His one-liners are delivered with personality as he mocks himself as the 'stupidest animal in the room.' But beyond him the film offers very little.
I can see how there would be an interest in the under five crowd; the dogs and cats are cute. But in terms of quality, there is nothing pleasing. The 3-D effects add nothing to the picture, and would be a terrible waste of money for anyone who opts for the so-called upgrade.
With Toy Story 3 and Despicable Me in theaters, Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore should be left in the litter box where it belongs. There is just no room for its aimless fluff.
