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
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.
