Cats & Dogs

by Mark Rivers

From executive producer Bruce BERMAN, CEO of Village Roadshow Pictures, Cats & Dogs comes close to being a film that I would actually recommend. Here is what I liked about it:

1) Mr. Tinkles (Sean Hayes), the evil (White) cat bent on taking over the world. He gets some really clever lines, and, speaking as a cat-person, I enjoyed his performance.

2) The Russian (co-writer Glenn Ficarra), the Russian Blue kitten sent to "hit" the puppy agent. The fight scene in the living room is priceless, especially when the mom (Elizabeth Perkins) walks in.

3) "Who do you think kidnapped us, Chad or Uruguay?"

4) The ninja kitties.

5) There was only one visible negro in the film; a factory worker with no dialogue (if only they could be that way in real life). Gorilla Michael Clarke Duncan voiced one of the dogs, but it was a really dumb dog.

See, occasionally I like something about a film. Now, here is what I didn't like about Cats & Dogs:

1) The unavoidable presence of Jews, including actors Jeff GOLDBLUM, Jon LOVITZ and Miriam MARGOLYES, producer Bruce BERMAN and director Lawrence GUTERMAN.

BERMAN's Village Roadshow pictures, by the way, is also responsible for such films as The Matrix, Swordfish and Exit Wounds.

2) Quite a few gags about feces, urine and flatulence.

3) Sean Hayes rose to fame by playing a fag on TV.

As clever as I found some of the lines, as amusing as some of the scenes were, I still can't bring myself to recommend this film. It just isn't right for me to "excuse" the few bad things about it, because that's how the Jews got their foothold in the first place.

Sixty years ago, White Americans allowed negro cinema to exist, never dreaming that they would someday walk among us. Forty years ago, they allowed negroes to portray butlers and maids on TV, never dreaming that they would someday start getting uppity. Twenty years ago, they allowed uppity negroes to interact with them, albeit platonically. Today...well, you can see how it is today.

Cats & Dogs, while it doesn't have a great deal of miscegenation (unless you count the marriage of the obviously Shiksa Perkins character to that of olive-hued GOLDBLUM), is made by the same people who crank out so many films with a much higher percentage of the "Kill Whitey" element.

As with Shrek, this review may have been too late to prevent most parents from taking their kids to see it. Still, when your toddler or pre-teen begs for the video or DVD of "Cats & Dogs," it is my hope that you will consider who is reaping the profits of that movie, and who will use that money to make more films like Swordfish, Exit Wounds and The Matrix.
