Rachel is enjoying her aunt's wealthy home but can't resist a weekend trip to Mexico with her friends.

After saving her and himself, Delgado agrees to help her get home and they begin their journey across Mexico for Beverly Hills. Meanwhile, Rachel has enlisted the help of her Aunt's gardener and Papi, the gardener's Chihuahua who's crazy about Chloe, to help find and save her.

Trivia

Cheech Marin once voiced another chihuahua in Oliver & Company (1988). 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 »

Should be MANDATORY to actually see the movie before voting!
8 November 2008 | by bc1440See all my reviews

I agree with some of the previous reviewers - how can you rate a movie without even seeing it?!? Well, guess that gives us the right to rate THEM without even knowing them! I give those people a 1.5.

This is a KID'S movie and to rate it a 2 is ridiculous. It's not the best movie but it sure is much better than A LOT of recent kid's/animated films. My kids, 4 & 5, loved this movie and that's really my biggest requirement. There are many others where they were bored and wanted to leave in less than 30 minutes.

To the people voting it so low (especially ones who vote without viewing) - GET A LIFE!
