Storyline

Chloe, a diamond-clad ultra-pampered Beverly Hills Chihuahua finds herself being "puppy-sit" by the niece, Rachel, of her owner when she leaves for Europe for one of her fashion shows. Rachel is enjoying her aunt's wealthy home but can't resist a weekend trip to Mexico with her friends. With Chloe in tote, Rachel's partying quickly disgusts Chloe and she decides she will go home herself. Chloe quickly gets lost in Mexico and thrown into a dog-fighting ring where she meets Delgado, an ex police K9 who is there and finds himself between his old enemy Diablo, the drug-lord's dog who ruined his career, and Chloe. 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.

Disney goes Big Brother on Beverly Hills' pooches
17 October 2008 | by brettchatz-1See all my reviews

Aunt Viv(Jamie Lee Curtis)is simply besotted with her pedigree pet Chihuahua named Chloe(Drew Barrymore). As a successful fashion icon, aunt Viv lives in the lap of luxury with her spoiled little companion.

A serendipitous business call sees aunt Viv entrusting her best friend into the care of her niece Rachel(Piper Perabo). The story starts off inanely, waffles on most of the way and ends up in Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta. A series of bizarre misadventures, an unlikely but foreseen romance and a dream Disney ending make this flick one for the kids or desperately bored adults.

There are some brilliant voice talents, especially George Lopez as the love interest and Andy Garcia as the menacing guard dog - Delgado.

My advice: steer well clear of this drivel
