Cats and Dogs
Those ancient enemies, cats and dogs, do battle in this kids' flick

submit to reddit

Mr. Tinkles, a despot cat, is scheming to interfere in Prof. Brody's work on a cure for dog allergies. After the cat-napping of the Brodys' dog, a worldwide canine organisation arranges for a secret agent pup to be infiltrated into the family, but Mrs. Brody picks Lou, an untrained beagle, instead. Retaliating, Mr. Tinkles sends cat ninjas to attack Brody and conquer the world.

It doesn't have the attitude that makes, say, Toy Story or Mouse Hunt play to adults as well as kids, and there are scenes which could have come from a Beethoven sequel. But with the spy stuff - dogs and cats doing kung fu, tossing killer gadgets or zooming through a canine Bond base — it’s hard not to gurgle with something close to childish joy.
