One of Pongo and Perdita's 15 Dalmatian puppies, our Rolly Mini Bean Bag Plush loves to watch TV with you. Luckily, this soft-stuffed toy of the hungry spotted pup lets you keep all the snacks for yourself!
It's hard to know who thought it would be a good idea to make a live-action version of Disney's animated classic. The one bright notion anyone had was casting Glenn Close as Disney über-villainess Cruella de Vil; her flashing eyes and angular features are a perfect match and do credit to what is one of the most indelible animated characters Disney has ever created. The story remains essentially the same, focusing on Cruella's plot to kidnap the puppies of a young married couple (Jeff Daniels and Jolie Richardson) and make them into a coat. But the dreaded John Hughes, who wrote this script, fills it with sadistic slapstick and far too few genuine laughs. The human actors work hard, but to little avail; thankfully, there's a passel of puppies to regularly steal scenes when the going gets dreary--although there are only so many laughs to be had from inappropriate dog puddles. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The film follows closely the original story and tells the tale of London couple Roger and Anita who meet through a Dalmatian dog mixup in a London Park and fall in love, marry and find themselves the happy "parents" of 15 beautiful Dalmatian puppies when their Dalmatians Pongo and Perdita begin a family of their own. Their happiness is short lived however when Anita's boss the dastardly Cruella De Vil spots the puppies and immediately makes plans to have the puppies kidnapped so that she can turn their pelts into the extravagant spotted fur coat she has always dreamed of having. What ensures is a comical tale full of laughs, great stunts and hilarious situations of the "boo the villian, cheer the dogs" variety. The Dalmatian parents, with the aid of many assorted members of the animal kingdom from woodpeckers, squirrels, and assorted sheep pigs, and dogs not only succeed in tracking down the missing puppies in their hideout but also outwit Cruella and her incompetent accomplices at every turn.Read more ›
To sum it up: While this is a little bit different from the animated classic we all remember, it's still got the spirit--and it's very much worthwhile to dog lovers, although I don't know how much certoam cat fatanatics will enjoy this..... ;O) (HIGHLY RECOMENDED. Essensial to any family's collection, this is something everyone can enjoy...unless, of course, you purrrrrfer cats and kittens.)
But for the slap-stick comedic relief the kids feel has to be alive in the film isn't left out. Cruella's bumbaling sidekicks, Horace & Jasper are not left behind & many of their hilarious antics will have your kids rolling.

This item is a region 2 product that cannot be played in Canada unless you reprogram your DVD player to play multi region. This does not work for library patrons.Published 9 months ago by Darwell Public Library
i don't know what they wanted to make a live action version of the classic Disney film. It adds nothing. Why would you remake a movie and make it LESS good than the original? Read morePublished 11 months ago by Frog Feet
