Well the secret agents of the canine and feline world are at it again. This time with a new crew fighting the dastardly aspirations of a hairless cat named Kitty Galore (voiced by Bette Midler). Kitty Galore has her eye on revenge. Revenge against dogs and humans. It is this latter threat that drives the dogs and cats to join together to fight her scheme of world-wide domination. Her plot centers around a recording known as the "Call of the Wild". Should this horrific sound be heard by dogs, they will all turn mad and therefore be turned out by their owners. Abandoned by their designated best friends, Kitty plans to enslave the human race.
This film is a cute if slightly trite send-up of James Bond films, including a gorgeous opening title sequence. A mish-mash of classic spy films with a splash of other famous film moments, there are plenty of giggles if not many guffaws. Both children enjoyed the film and it maintained the attention of the 3 year old. There was no offensive language and little innuendo. All in all, it was a fun outing, though at today's prices, it is not a Must See at the theater. Therefore, as a fun film for adults and children, I give it a borderline "Step Out".
