Goofs

Roger and Anita's house is located in South Kensington, as can be seen on the street sign outside their house several times. This is north of the River Thames. In one of the later scenes the view from their rear window shows the River Thames, Tower Bridge, and Big Ben as seen from the south bank. See more »

Quotes

Jasper: [Trying to start the van] You just had to let those puppies get away, didn't you? Never paying attention.
Horace: Well, where was you?
Jasper: Where was? I was not splashing about in the pond. You've infuriated the old bag, and if we don't get those puppies back it is quite literally our heads! Oh, come on! Right, you better get out and check the tailpipe. We've got a condensation problem.
Horace: [threateningly] One of these days I'm gonna be full up of you!
Horace: [Gets out]
Jasper: [...]

Out of the box

As a very young child, I grew up on the 1961 101 Dalmatians. I loved the show, and I remember thinking that it was one of Disney's best. So when the 1996 live-action remake came out, I had my doubts that anything could be as good as the original. I was wrong. This movie is absolutely fantastic! It is beautifully written and the dogs are so cute and loveable... but I think the thing that ties it all together is the casting. The characters were brought to life in a totally believeable way--from Jeff Daniels as the Dalmatian-loving, Cruella-hating Roger Dearly, to Ms.DeVil herself, played to perfection by the unbeatable Glenn Close. All of the actors fill the shoes of their characters, the comic timing is just right, and everything about it spells a Disney masterpiece.
