Cats and Dogs Review - Can Kitty Galore get her Revenge?

 In the eternal battle between cats and dogs, one crazed feline has just taken things a paw too far.

Cats and Dogs: Kitty Galore, disguised as a dog, starts her revenge

The audience laughed and clapped as the evil Kitty Galore, a former elite agent for the spy organization MEOWS, decides to get her revenge on the humans who scorned her - she will make the world her scratching post. 
PAWS, the dog spy organization, has only 48 hours to help save mankind and they must do it with the help of Dicks, a bumbling former police dog, recruited for just this case. 

Cats and Dogs: Dicks must learn to get along with cats

It's time for the fur to fly as the feline and canines team up and realize that for the first time, they can truly work together.

Much of the humor flies at the adult level but is truly PG. “Adorable,” said one adult goer who plans on taking his kids again; 10/10 said several kids.

The comedy "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore," a blend of live action, state-of-the-art puppetry and computer animation in 3D, stars Emmy Award winner Christina Applegate ("Friends," "Samantha Who?"), Oscar® nominee Michael Clarke Duncan ("The Green Mile"), Emmy Award nominee Neil Patrick Harris ("How I Met Your Mother"), Emmy Award winner Sean Hayes ("Will & Grace"), James Marsden ("Hairspray"), two-time Oscar® nominee, Emmy and multiple Grammy Award winner Bette Midler, Oscar® nominee Nick Nolte ("Affliction," "The Prince of Tides"), Emmy Award winner Joe Pantoliano ("The Sopranos"), comedian and rapper Katt Williams ("The Katt Phenomenon"), Chris O'Donnell ("NCIS: Los Angeles"), Emmy Award nominee Jack McBrayer ("30 Rock"), SNL regular Fred Armisen ("Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy") and Paul Rodriguez ("Tortilla Soup," "Comic Relief VII").

“It wasn’t easy acting in a void,” said one of the actors, who described the voice over experience.  “You have to learn to make the emotion not just visual but to act with the intention in your voice.”   Not everyone can do voice overs, but these actors certainly could.

Cats and Dogs: Can they be friends

The film is directed by Brad Peyton and written by Ron J. Friedman & Steve Bencich, based on characters created by John Requa & Glenn Ficarra. It is produced by Andrew Lazar and Polly Johnsen, with Brent O'Connor and  Bruce Berman serving as executive producers. The creative behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Steven Poster, production designer Rusty Smith, editor Julie Rogers and composer Christopher Lennertz.

Cats and Dogs: Dicks first assignment

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Mad Chance/Polymorphic Pictures Production: "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore," distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures. This film is rated PG by the MPAA for animal action and humor.

Stay for the final credits showing dogs and cats loving each other as “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” plays.  As the “mother” to both species, I can attest that these two breeds can indeed love one another just as they do in the movie.
