Trivia

According to George Lopez, Papi, the chihuahua he voices in the movie, was one day away from being put down before he was rescued for the movie. See more »

Goofs

The mountain lion scene would be incredibly unlikely in real life. For one, mountain lions are solitary animals and never hunt in groups. Second, they only hunt at dawn or dusk and would never attack in a group out in the open in full sun during the middle of the day. See more »

Quotes

Delgado: [to Chloe] Look, if you're worth something, they'll ransom you, and if they ransom you, they won't fight you, so I guess you're safe.

A Tail Unlike Any Other
17 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most hilarious movies I have ever seen. One reviewer from Mexico has pointed out that in the film they take a train to Tijuana, which has no train station, that they go the wrong way to Chihuahua, that they get their Aztecs and Toltecs all mixed up, and so forth. Yes, that is all true, and it is also true that Americans have never been any good at geography (except that they know that California is west of New York somewhere, and that Mexico is 'somewhere down there', like the bowels). But never mind. It is all in fun. Nothing about this film is meant to be in any way serious. It takes comedy to new canine heights. Nothing is more effective in comedy than to treat the ridiculous as sublime, and here we have the utmost expression of that technique. I suppose, for all I know, that there really are silly women in Beverly Hills who carry their Chihuahuas around with them covered in diamond necklaces, booties, and jewel-studded caps. No human folly ever surprises me, especially those of the spoilt rich, and above all, those of Tinsel Town. But nevertheless, the excesses of Chihuahua fashion seen in this film, which transcend anything ever dreamt of by Dior or Chanel, must surely trespass upon the borders of fantasy? (Or am I being naïve, and it is all even more extreme than that in real life?) But, accepting as normal the wildly extravagant as the film's opening premise, we go on from there to the most hilarious and bizarre adventures of a spoilt Chihuahua ever recorded in canine annals. Not since the first pet was adopted by the first cave child have we ever seen anything like this. Words fail us. So do barks and woofs. There is just no way to describe it, you have to see it. The voices used for the animals are uncanny. Andy Garcia's voice of a sad, world-weary Alsatian (German Shepherd) is a triumphant achievement worthy of a Vocal Oscar, if such things existed. Drew Barrymore as the spoilt heroine Chihuahua is, oops, so convincing that, well, what must her friends think now? The dogs all deserve Dog Oscars, Golden Dog Bowl Awards, etc. The amazing rat and iguana characters in the film, carrying special effects into new realms, are pure Disney genius. I have no idea how they made this film. The dogs' lips move and words come out just like George Bush. Was Dick Cheney a production ventriloquism adviser? The deleted scenes on the DVD are a 'must' for viewing, and should not be missed. I would not call this film corny. I would not call it cute. I would call it a brilliant comedy achievement in every respect, and a special effects and production triumph, giving us 91 minutes of non-stop hilarity and reminding us that even when the world economy is collapsing, we can still laugh until we cry.
