Goofs

After Papi tells the pups the story about the fearless Chihuahua warriors, Papi Jr jumps up on the flowerpot on the window, pretending that he was a warrior fighting a poisonous snake (which in actuality was a vine). The screws come loose, however, and both the flower pot and the puppy go crashing to the ground from the second floor. Delgado, the German Shepard police dog that Chloe met in the first movie, catches Papi Jr and puts the pup safely on the ground, but the pot can be heard smashing against the ground. However, in the wide shot afterwards, there is no sign of broke ceramic, and when it shows the other puppies looking out the window, the pot is back in place, with no sign of it ever breaking free.

Simply Splendid Family Comedy
7 July 2011 | by rannynmSee all my reviews

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 is an irresistible Disney comedy with tons of adventure that is perfect for the entire family! It is directed by Alex Zamm and written by Dannah Feinglass, Danielle Schneider, and Jeffrey Bushell.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 is about two newlywed Chihuahuas named Papi and Chloe who start a family. Chloe gives birth to 5 impetuous and reckless puppies, but the pups soon get their act together when they find out their human owners have trouble paying off the mortgages for their house. The dogs decide to enter the Beverly Hills dog show in hope for the $50,000 prize to help their owners keep the house, but unfortunately, the dogs do not win. However, a bank robbery occurs and the pups decide to stop the crime. Their mischievousness leads them to capturing the robbers and saving the day, but will this good deed be enough to stop the bank from foreclosing their human owners' house? The voice over of the movie is excellent. The dogs' voices fit their personalities well and the voice over contains a lot of emotion. For example, Delgado (voiced over by Miguel Ferrer) who is a sleuthhound, had a husky voice which matched well with his appearance as well as his role in the movie. Papi's voice also adjusted well to things that were going on in the movie. For example, when he told his pups nightly bedtime stories, his voice would become low in pitch and he would sound mysterious.

The movie is also very comical. I found myself giggling in almost every scene! This movie overall is exhilarating and it contains heartwarming messages such as "true love is worth any risk," "love fearlessly, and help others share their hearts as well," "family is about who you love, not just who you are born to," "we are stronger together than we are alone," and "stick by your loved ones, even in hard times." The message "stick by your loved ones, even in hard times," is perhaps the most significant message in the movie because Papi's entire family as well as his owners' family tried their best to prevent the bank from foreclosing their home.

I would recommend this movie to ages 6 and up. Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 is a splendid family film, but if director Alex Zamm created more suspense while the dogs were enjoying their escapades, the movie would have created a bigger impact on the audience and hence, become more captivating. Nevertheless, all in all, this film is perfect for anyone who wants to watch a humorous entertaining adventure about talking dogs!
