Chicago Sun-Times
One of the movie's most enjoyable in-jokes is the way some of the animals actually look a little like the humans doing their voices.

Philadelphia Inquirer
For its first hour, it's a delightful cloak-and-dagger comedy starring a brave Beagle James Bond and a depraved Persian Dr. Evil.
67
Entertainment Weekly
The plot and script sag like worn out chew toys just when Cats & Dogs should be in full squeak.
63
New York Daily News
As delicious as this premise is, Cats & Dogs is about as funny as a hairball left on your pillow.

Miami Herald
Undeniably charming, and kids will certainly enjoy it.

San Francisco Chronicle
It is never less than interesting. But who wants interesting from a movie called Cats & Dogs? It needs to grab the audience by the scruff of the neck and shake it.
50
This family entertainment hard sell lags far behind even "Dr. Dolittle 2."
50
Boston Globe
The effects are so showy, and so relentless, that they call attention pretty quickly to the fact that there is not much else to Cats and Dogs.
50
Some stunts and jokes are genuinely clever.
50
Baltimore Sun
There are the gadgets and the effects. But Cats and Dogs definitely could have been more fetching.
30
Irritating, childish and more frantic than funny, Cats & Dogs does manage some few pleasant moments, but they are not worth waiting for.
10
Wall Street Journal
Grindingly tedious.
