MOVIE REVIEW: Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore in 3D + free games

Not the Best Kids Movie of the Year, but OK

On Tuesday, I and my son went to an advance screening of Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore at the Emagine Theater in Novi.

The story is about a police dog named Diggs (voiced by James Marsden) who has been thrown off the police force because he went "rouge", did not follow orders, and accidentically blew up a car dealership.  He is banned to the kennels until one day a secret under cover dog named Butch (voiced by Nick Nolte) shows up out of no where to recruit him for a top secret mission. A former cat agent named Kitty Galore (voiced by Bette Midler) was chased into a vat of fur removal gel by a guard dog and now wants revenge on dogs and mankind.  The movie follows Diggs, Butch and their animal posse as they try to take down the evil Kitty Galore and save their beloved humans.

I have to admit, that I went into the movie thinking it was going to be dumbest movie that I seen in a while.  I am not a big fan of talking animal movies and the first 40 minutes proved that I was right on the dumb part. Everyone wanted to laugh, but there was just not much to be excited about. The entire movie theater was in dead silence. The movie mocked every James Bond movie ever made and the action was decent at best.  But as the movie moved along something strange happened: it got funny and it was exciting! Those dogs and cats and that crazy pigeon actually had me enjoying myself and getting into the plot. Bette Midler as Kitty Galore was too funny. But Katt Williams as Seamus, the stool pigeon, had the best lines in the entire movie.

Don't go expecting the best kids movie of the year with Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.  My son actually loved this movie since the end was good. If you can stand going from boring to decent to exciting, then this movie is for you. Otherwise, go see Despicable Me in 3D and wait for this one to come out on DVD.

Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore opens in theaters Friday, July 30, 2010.
