101 Dalmatians (Live Action) product reviews

Slapstick kingpin John Hughes translates the classic animated children's tale into a campy live-action slugfest. The fur-loving, sadistic Cruella De Vil (Close, at her most outrageous) pants after the pelts of the titular puppies, hoping to sew them into a fabulous coat, but the dogs outsmart her and her bumbling henchmen.

I'd seen the animated version of 101 Dalmatians several times and when this came out in 1996 I knew that I wanted to see it and though I can't remember how it happened, we won tickets to the movie (I only remember as it was a rare occasion to go to the cinema with my dad and I got a T-shirt which I loved and got very, very well worn) and it was one that I enjoyed so much that when I saw it in the shops a couple of years ago I knew I had to have it, and I had recently read the book.

What a lot of work must have gone into this movie as the use of real dogs and puppies.... Pongo and Perdi were so well trained that you knew how they were feeling and you could see the pain and sorrow on their faces when the puppies were gone. The cast is made up of some wonderful actors, I love Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil but other than her, the humans are majorly outshone by the dogs and puppies in this movie. My only gripe is that the husband didn't go to the pregnancy exam and Pongo wasn't allowed to see his puppies being born. Other than that this is a fun family movie.
