Cats and Dogs & Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

In the beginning, God created beast and man. And made both of them equal. So both can live in friendship, in harmony and at peace. Even when they have creatures as pets. But as cats and dogs were born, they were new to the world too. As some can mostly like cats, some can mostly like dogs, and as some can like both cats and dogs.

But between these two animal pets, they are aware of each other, and have been rivals since the days of Ancient Egypt and so forth in time. That was when these two movies from Warner Bros. did them, from the early days of their Home Entertainment movies, to the year 2010 when everything change differently. cats and dogs in these movies, were super spies. And protect the humans from any danger there is, that may come to them.

In 2001, “Cats and Dogs” began when both were super spies. And how they have their secret battles against each other, away from the humans. Along the way, a beagle came to join as he was a renegade to the dogs. But to the cats, lead by a white Persian cat, from a far off mansion, his mission was to achieve a goal. Make humans be allergic to dogs than cats. So he almost did it. But the renegade beagle stopped him and survived. For he almost died by a big blast. And has become a secret agent when he was a full grown beagle years later.

For what happened was only the beginning. While Jeff Goldblum, Elizabeth Perkins, Alexander Pollock and Miriam Margolyes were humans in that movie, the voice talents of the cats and dogs were a surprise. Tobey Maguire as the renegade beagle before he was Spider Man, Alec Baldwin as a dog partner before he was the third narrator for “Thomas the Tank Engine”, Sean Hayes as the white Persian cat villain, Jon Lovitz too as his sidekick, Charlton Heston for Dog HQ before he was in the Tim Burton movie of “Planet of the Apes”, Billy West and Joe Pantoliano also, and Michael Clarke Duncan as a sheepdog, since you’ve known him as John Coffey in “The Green Mile”.

Almost 10 years passed, as they forgot all about them. However, a sequel to that movie was out. James Bond style.

In 2010, was “Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore”. While the Persian villain cat was in Alcatraz prison, as a reference to “Silence of the Lambs”, a new cat villain came to town. She was once a cat agent, when she lost all of her fur at cosmetics factory, by falling into a tub of violet hair removal gel. That was a reference to the first Batman movie from director Tim Burton. But as she vowed revenge on the humans and dogs, she was like Mr. Bigglesworth from “Austin Powers”. Dr. Evil’s cat, as she was no longer a white cat. But a Sphinx cat. And her revenge, was a satellite and a satellite ray, to make dogs go insane by the signal. Cause when they go wild, they were to be locked in the kennels. Where no dog, can be loved ever again. And as years since the renegade beagle became an agent, and became the boss of dog HQ, they found a new dog renegade. A German Shepard as they hired him. By unlocking secrets, and what else that they might find, two dogs, and a pigeon ran into a cat agent. Who was after the secrets of Kitty Galore too. But it lead to no choice, but to these words that I knew since the 1990’s version of “Lord of the Flies” in the beginning…

“It doesn’t matter who’s in charge. We just gotta work together”.

So cats and dogs were to work together, as they had to stop this. Until finally, Kitty Galore was defeated, and was under the care of a magician now. Portrayed by Jack McBrayer. So from that day forward, their rivalry ended, as they would be sure to protect the humans as always. In this sequel, replacing some of the old cast from the first, was a surprise. James Marsden as the German Shepard, Christina Applegate as a grey cat, Roger Moore as a tabby cat since you’ve known him as James Bond, Neil Patrick Harris as the boss beagle, replacing Tobey Maguire, Michael Clarke Duncan as the sheepdog again from the first movie, Sean Hayes too as the white Persian cat at Alcatraz island, Wallace Shawn as his 2nd in command cat friend replacing Jon Lovitz, Bette Midler as Kitty Galore, Nick Nolte as that friend to the beagle who replaced Alec Baldwin, Katt Williams as a pigeon, Joe Pantoliano as that tech specialist again, J.K. Simmons as a K-9 agent, two more voice celebrities that happened to be in some Studio Ghibli movies, and finally….Phil LaMarr as a butt ugly robot, since he was Marvin in “Pulp Fiction” and Samurai Jack himself in that TV series of the same name. That and the new season in 2017.

For the humans in that sequel, Jack O’Donnell as a San Francisco cop since he was Robin in “Batman Forever” and “Batman and Robin”, Jack McBrayer as that magician, Paul Rodriguez as a mad bomber, Fred Armisen as a German worker at a satalite base, and a young actress who was in Studio Ghibli’s Oscar nominated movie, “When Marnie Was There”.

Cats and dogs can be aware of each other today. But in those two movies here, from Warner Bros, they can be super agents to protect the humans, since James Bond 007. Recommended for people of all ages. No matter how old or young they are. But as I look at both felines and canines, they can be friends at some point. Just as long as they don’t cause any trouble. For some of us can like either one or both.

So thanks to Warner Bros, recommended for all ages, no matter how old or young we are, I give both here 7 1/2 out of 10 stars.
