Trivia

Like many pre-1989 Disney Films, the video release of "Oliver & Company" was delayed for years. Despite this film being released in 1988 and being a commercial success, it was not released on video until 1996. See more »

Goofs

During the "Good Company" montage Jenny's house number is 1125 ("1125 5th Ave." as seen on Oliver's new tag). Right after the montage, as Jenny leaves for school, it is now 140 (as seen above the house door). Thirty seconds later, when Winston answers the door, it is 1125 again. In some shots the house number disappears altogether. See more »

Quotes

Sykes: Three sunrises. Three sunsets. Three days, Fagin.
Fagin: [counting on his fingers] Three sunrises. Three sunsets. Three days. Three, three, three. That's nine. Nine?
Sykes: No, Fagin. Three.
Fagin: Three? Oh, you mean, just three days? Oh, my goodness! Oh, I'm having a bad day!

I love this movie!!!
1 September 2005 | by (Breda, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

OK, I've seen this movie for the first time when I was 6 years old... This movie was actually made in 1988, the year I was born I haven't seen it in 11 years, and now I'm 17 I love this movie even more then I did before!

The songs are lovely, and the story is really heartwarming!! The dutch version of this movie is just as funny as the English is! My favorite character is Dodger, because he's the "cool street dog" and Oliver is just cute!!

I know I'm a real Disney freak and this movie really belongs to one of my favorites!!!
