Trivia

The Disney computer game "101 Dalmations Animated Storybook", which takes the user through the story in interactive ways, has a mixture of story elements from both the animated and live "101 Dalmations" movies: in the game, most details follow the animated version of the film. However, Roger and Anita have the same jobs as in the live film: Roger's a video game designer and Anita works for Cruella as a clothes designer, which gave Cruella the nasty idea for a genuine Dalmation coat (in the original animated film, Roger was a songwriter and Anita's job was never mentioned; she did not work for Cruella and knew her only as an old school mate). Also in the game, Roger and Anita meet in the park while taking their dogs for a walk; they end up colliding simultaneously in the pond, as they do in the animated film. However, they do so while on their bicycles, which was a detail exclusively from the live film. The game also shows only one dog rescue the puppies from the De Vil manor; this is a detail similar to the live movie, while in the animated movie, a cat and dog both banded together to save the puppies.

Quotes

Cruella De Vil: You... BEASTS! But I'm not beaten yet. You've won the battle, but I'm about to win the wardrobe. My spotty puppy coat is in plain sight and leaving tracks. In a moment I'll have what I came for, while all of you will end up as sausage meat, alone on some sad, plastic plate. Dead and meaty and red. No friends, no family, no pulse. Just slapped between two buns, smothered in onions, with fries on the side. Cruella De Vil has the last laugh!

Great children entertainment.
22 October 2005 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

"101 Dalmatians" is perfectly good clean children entertainment. It's has a fun feeling and atmosphere and some great characters.

John Hughes his writing style is notable in this movie. The characters and the humor are similar to his other movies such as the well know movie "Home Alone". The humor is slapstick like at times (especially with the villains Jasper and Horace) which works very effective for a fun children movie like this one.

Of course everything is terribly predictable and nothing that happens in this movie comes as a surprise. It's simple fun and entertainment. The humor is simple but it's good and works effective.

Glenn Close is perfectly cast as über-villain Cruella De Vil and portrays a highly memorable character. She truly is the highlight of the movie and steals the show. She also seemed to had lots of fun playing the over-the-top villainous but oh so fun character. Also good are the more slapstick like, stereotypical villains Jasper and Horace played by Hugh Laurie and Mark Williams. Another fun villain role is played by John Shrapnel who is perhaps best known for his role in "Gladiator".

The fun and perhaps also a bit underrated musical score is done by Michael Kamen. It quite honestly is one of his better works.

Children will enjoy watching this movie and I can know, since I actually saw this movie back in the cinema, when I was still a child myself.

6/10
