Everyone has problems here, but nothing is monumental. This is an "easy" picture with many great scenic aerials, but not a heavy-duty drama. Many wonderful central Otago and Queenstown settings including a Tiger Moth biplane.

Well, it's not Shakespeare - but if you have a Chihuahua . . .
26 December 2003 | by rathorntonSee all my reviews

OK, I will admit that this movie is a take-off on Home-Alone. I will even admit that the movie will never ever win an Oscar. BUT - if you are a dog owner, and especially a Chihuahua dog owner like I am - this movie ROCKS! It is a cute - WAY over the top movie about a hero Chihuahua who thinks it is a cat. But that isn't even the funny parts. The funny parts are when Ping "becomes" Macaulay Culkin (who named that kid anyway) and beats up on the bad guys. It is a stupid movie for most, but for us Chihuahua owners, it is a wonderful alternative to the Legally Blondes (those folks should be arrested for dressing that poor little dog - only kidding). Anyway, Ping! is a delightful movie if all you want to do is smile and giggle a few times. I myself am an action movie guy, but I do love my little Chihuahua (Dimples) so I guess you could call me soft for enjoying this flick. If it makes me smile, even once, it isn't a waste of celluloid. Laughter is a hard commodity to come by today and this flick produces a small amount of it. I own it, but then, I also own a Chihuahua - so go figure.
