friends won't let friends see... beverly hills chihuahua

So I was watching Freaky Friday on "The Wonderful World of Disney" tonight* and the Disney people took the opportunity to relentlessly plug their upcoming film, Beverly Hills Chihuahua.

Unfortunately, it only confirmed my initial instinct about this movie... it's just a big vapid animal stunt. 100 dogs manipulated by CGI + tired, exploitative jokes + the voices of George Lopez and Drew Barrymore = a big fat WHO CARES?

With all respect to costars Barrymore, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Piper Perabo (all of whom I love), I'm thinking that if you're over the age of six, you really need to find something better to do with your $9. There's a recession on. Use the cash for something worthwhile... if you're taking the kids out, go see WALL-E again.

*Yeah. In my pj's. With a big bowl of mac and cheese. That's how I roll.

    Just saw the poster for it on my way to The Dark Knight and it looks pretty bad.

    For me this is just another pointless animal exploitations film which just don't deserve to watch except you are chihuahua true lovers like Paris Hilton or Paula Abdul maybe.

    I think Jeff Dunham does a pretty good bit about small dogs. I'm pretty sure it can be found on his Spark of Insanity DVD.

    I would watch 90 minutes of Chihuahua's being cute and chasing toys or tiny frisbees on Animal Planet or some home video show, but why do the most vocal of dogs need voice overs?

    BRILLIANT insight, valis.

    I hate movies where live action dogs or cats move their mouths so they can be dubbed in later with voices of famous actors.

    So, good pick. If your friend lets you watch this movie, they're most likely your enemies.

    How about a review of Freaky Friday? By the way, (*crosses fingers*), I hope you were watching the Jodie Foster version and not the Lindsey Lohan version...

    Nope, sorry. LaLohan. Still want the review?
