My Review

Source Material: Original Live-Action Disney Comedy.

Action: Defective: How do you screw up screwball and slapstick?

Acting and Dialogue:
Defective: Let’s say George Lopez as Papi is best part of the film. The rest of the film is cheesy, stupid, and lame. Only two groups of people will get the jokes and appreciate the humor: Beverly Hills and Mexicans

Common: It works for children’s film but over all it not that spectacular.

Direction: Common: The pace is fairly good but the overall direction was point less.

Sound: Defective:
The sound track was cliché and the pseudo-score weren’t all that great either.

Special and Visual FX:
Common: Talking dogs is the master piece in this film.

D, I don’t recommend this film, not even to a family audience.
