Two of the chihuahuas used in the movie are in fact Rusco and Angel, the Beverly Hills Chihuahuas. Rusco played the role of Papi and Angel played the role of Chloe in the 2008 movie and it's sequels. Some of the other chihuahuas in the movie also starred in Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 (2011) and Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta! (2012) as Chloe and Papi's kids. See more »

This is a fine dog movie and good for the family without foul language and sex. Movies like this are so important because they remind us of how important dogs and other fellow animals are to us and how many of our human lives they have saved. Throughout history we have used animals like dogs, horses - even pigeons - to aid us in wars. Many thousands have been killed or slaughtered. Some have been recognised as the heroes they are but all to often these dear and faithful friends have been regarded as "things" and not sentient beings with feelings and emotions, beings that give us unconditional love and obedience. There have been better dog movies made in the past but Max is good and worth watching. Max is also a tribute to war dogs generally and hopefully will open some minds to the close relationship that exists between man the animal and his other animal friends.
