This film has been the center of controversy since its release, due to many allegations of animal abuse and cruelty during production. This included allegations that a number of kittens had been killed during filming due to dangerous filming conditions. Due to the film not being supervised by any animal advocacy groups during production, these reports cannot be confirmed. However, many have noted that the extreme and often dangerous conditions the animals were placed in (including footage of a cat falling off of a cliff) were likely due to the filmmakers intentionally putting the animals into these situations.

When the bear is in the river, he sees Milo float by in the wooden box. In the next scene, the bear is somehow again downstream of the box that just floated past him. See more »

I first saw this movie because the kids demanded to see it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that "Milo and Otis" is incredible! Sure, it is "cute" enough for kids of all ages-- but it is also meaningful and real for adults, even if it might be best enjoyed as an allegory or fable. The scenes are beautiful, and the cinematography is amazing, in the stunning Japanese naturalist style. The story is bold and loving; I found humor, interest, and positive encouragement and -- dare I say it so cornily? -- life lessons. Because it is so charming, as well as entertaining, I found it to be an excellent "date" video! The kind of women I am attracted to most, tend to find this movie (at least for one viewing) a pleasant alternative to regular fare. I rate it a solid "10," and recommend it to adults-- You'll enjoy it!
