Beverly Hills Chihuahua Review

Image for Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Chloe (Barrymore), a pampered Beverly Hills chihuahua, gets lost while on holiday in Mexico and must enlist the help of friendly pooches to escape the dognapper and get home.

★★★★★

Drew Barrymore is the voice of Jamie Lee Curtis’ chihuahua, and that’s probably all most adults need to know about this not-so-shaggy-dog tale. Pampered pooch Chloe leads the high life in Hollywood, trotting from hair appointment to pool party like a canine Paris Hilton. She gets a taste of reality when she’s snatched by dognappers in Mexico, though, and must enlist the help of a grumpy Alsatian, Delgado (Andy Garcia), to get home. It’s hugely silly, but peppy enough to be tolerable. What grates most are the patronising racial stereotypes: the dirty Mexican dogs are just waiting to be rescued by LA ladies and given a good bath.
