Cats & Dogs 2: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore 3D

Cats & Dogs 2: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore 3D (2010) – Rated PG for animal action and humor.

I went into this screening not ever having seen the first film.  I was told this would not be a problem, and that was correct.  What was a problem was how incredibly dull this film was.  I remember that the reason why I never saw the first one was because the trailers did not appeal to me.  Talking cats and dogs?  Seriously?  To be perfectly honest, the trailers for this film didn’t appeal to me either, but being a film critic and all it’s kind of one of those cons of the job.  I half-expected to at least laugh a few times and leave somewhat satisfied.  It’s a shame that didn’t happen.

It should be noted that the first film came out in 2001 so there was a nine-year gap between the two.  You’d think that with nine years between these films that they could at least come up with some good jokes or at least a story that hasn’t been done literally millions of times before.  Instead we were served with butt sniffing jokes and the classic dog and cat fights.  Yeah, dogs have a spot on their tummy that makes their feet wriggle in delight.  And yes, cats hate water.  Haha?

What’s most surprising is the talent they attracted to this bore fest.  How did they convince Bette Midler to voice Kitty Galore?  Christina Applegate?  Neil Patrick Harris?  And Chris O’Donnell?  Where did your career go?  And the 3D wasn’t even that impressive.  Not that I’m a huge fan of 3D to begin with (that’s a whole other post), but it was so unnecessary here.  You can tell that Warner Bros. was hoping the 3D upcharge would help with box office monies.

I am finding it really hard to say anything else about this film.  I felt like I was watching a film that probably should have gone straight-to-DVD and called it a day.  We’ll see how long it lasts in theaters before it inevitably starts showing on TBS every Saturday afternoon.  Filmtastic review = 1 star.
