Should Disney sell the Touchstone Label

In the early 1980’s the Walt Disney Studios found it could make money with PG movies like Never Cry Wolf, Condorman, and Tron. The only problem was the heat they were taking for tarnishing the ‘Disney’ name with the more adult fare. So in 1984… Read More »Should Disney sell the Touchstone Label

Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Laughs on a Leash

What do you get when you combine the latest film special effects with the classic Disney doggie adventure film? Through in a pampered pooch who gets caught up in a “ruff”-and-tumble comedy adventure and you get Beverly Hills Chihuahua, available on DVD and Blu-ray Hi-Def on March 3, 2009 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

Sadly, the film was predictable and many of the film’s laughs were spotted in the trailers. That said, my 5 year old enjoyed the film particularly the talking animals. It’s also a top selling DVD on amazon right now. So your tastes may vary.

Bonus features include an all-new animated short, deleted scenes and bloopers—plus Blu-ray exclusives that take viewers behind-the-scenes of the breakout hit that has captured the hearts of families and canine lovers across the nation.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua features live-action performances from including Jamie Lee Curtis (Freaky Friday) and Piper Perabo (The Prestige), the voice talents of Drew Barrymore (Charlie’s Angels), George Lopez (Swing Vote), Andy Garcia (Ocean’s Thirteen), Cheech Marin (Cars) and Paul Rodriguez (A Cinderella Story), and 200 of the cutest canines north or south of the border! With its themes of courage, friendship and fun, this heartwarming and sublimely silly action adventure is a can’t-miss DVD event for kids and adults.

When a chic Chihuahua named Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) goes astray south of the border, she must find her own way back to her indulgent 90210 life. Wealthy Viv’s (Jamie Lee Curtis) diminutive darling is misplaced in Mexico by a careless dog-sitter (Piper Perabo), thrusting her into the dog-eat-dog life of an ordinary mutt. As Chloe tries to make her way north with the help of her self-appointed protector Delgado (voiced by Andy Garcia) and a pack of new four-legged friends, hometown hero Papi (voiced by George Lopez), Chloe’s ardent Chihuahua admirer, embarks on a cross-cultural mission to rescue his beloved. As Chloe goes from ridiculously spoiled to newly self-sufficient, she also learns to embrace her “tiny but mighty” Chihuahua heritage.
