The film was altered from its original Japanese release when it was brought to English speaking countries. A large amount of footage of animals in dangerous, perilous situations (including scenes where it appears the animals are severely harmed and intentionally put into perilous situations) were removed to avoid controversy.

I first saw this movie because the kids demanded to see it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that "Milo and Otis" is incredible! Sure, it is "cute" enough for kids of all ages-- but it is also meaningful and real for adults, even if it might be best enjoyed as an allegory or fable. The scenes are beautiful, and the cinematography is amazing, in the stunning Japanese naturalist style. The story is bold and loving; I found humor, interest, and positive encouragement and -- dare I say it so cornily? -- life lessons. Because it is so charming, as well as entertaining, I found it to be an excellent "date" video! The kind of women I am attracted to most, tend to find this movie (at least for one viewing) a pleasant alternative to regular fare. I rate it a solid "10," and recommend it to adults-- You'll enjoy it!
