“Beverly Hills Chihuahua” barks onto the scene tomorrow to declare an early lead on the Best Dog In A Motion Picture Academy Award. No, it’s not the next Eddie Murphy return vehicle, instead it purports to be a cute story of love, loss and rescue between two diminutive and overly pampered dogs who happen to believe they’re descendant from gods. Well, not exactly, but you get the picture.
The film features the voices of George Lopez, Drew Barrymore, Andy Garcia, Plácido Domingo, Edward James Olmos, Paul Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Luis Guzman, Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo, and actors Piper Perabo, Manolo Cardona, Eugenio Derbez and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Critics have not been kind to “Beverly Hills Chihuahua.” Rotten Tomatoes has it pegged at 67%. But some have reported that a warm hearted story and a lack of the typical dog jokes make BHC better than the average dog comedy. So that says something.
If you live in the Los Angeles area you can catch a special engagement of Walt Disney Pictures’ “Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” at Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre. From October 3rd through the 16th each screening will feature a LIVE stage appearance by the film’s dog stars, “Papi” and “Chloe,” .
The film screens daily at 10:00 am, 1:00 pm, 4:00 pm, 7:00 pm and 9:40 pm.
