Storyline

A secret war between cats and dogs quickly peaks as Professor Brody a scientist tries to create a serum to cure dog allergies in humans. As the unsuspecting humans go through their busy lives, the cats make several attempts to possess the formula, as their canine foes try tirelessly to stop them. Caught in the crossfire, a young beagle named Lou, adopted by the Brody family, tries hard to succeed as a secret agent, and in being a friend to the young Scotty Brody. A evil snow white cat named Mr. Tinkles is planning to sabotage the efforts of Professor Brody to discover a cure for human allergies to dogs. And he'll even make every person on Earth allergic to dogs so that he can take over the world with his army of evil cats! Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

The electronic press kit for the film sent to media included a video showing an increasingly irate Mr. Tinkles screentesting unsuccessfully for several famous movie roles. These scenes can be found on the special features on the DVD. See more »

Goofs

When the dog agents are trying to break into Professor Brody's Lab, the camera shot changes to the dog's point of view. He explains that he doesn't know which wire to cut (as all of his vision is in black and white), but dogs do not see in black and white - their only visual impairment is that they see in the same way as a human with color blindness.

Quotes

Lou: You should've fought for me; for my family.
Butch: Why? What good would it do?
Lou: What about man's best friend? History 101, remember?
Butch: Okay, well, here's lesson number two: we help them. We work for them. We tolerate that stupid boochy-boochy baby talk crap. And for WHAT? So that when they go off to college, they can dump you off with some old lady who can't throw a ball without so much as breaking her HIP!
Lou: Is that what happened to you? You're gonna blame my family for what some boy did to you?
Butch: Look, kid...

Who Will Rule the World? Cats or Dogs............
21 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

Why can't people just let a movie be cute instead of analyzing it to death. Sure the plot is a bit much--cats are trying to prevent a Mr. Brody from inventing a vaccine which will cure dog allergies--thus making dogs more popular than cats. With a "Mission Impossible" format dogs and cats battle each other for domination of the world.

The plots gets carried away with itself toward the end, but who cares?

The dog and cat agents are all good (their voices, excuse me). Especially, good is the voice of the persian cat, Mr. Twiggles, whose owner is bedridden. The housekeeper/nurse makes Mr. Twiggles' life a horror by continually dressing him in feminine outfits which he hates.

Another favorite is Lou, the beagle puppy who is adopted by the Brody family and is drafted as a secret agent in the war against cats.

I gave this movie 8 stars.
