CATS AND DOGS 2: REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE

SYNOPSIS:
In the age-old battle between cats and dogs, one crazed feline has taken things a paw too far. Kitty Galore, formerly an agent for cat spy organization MEOWS, has gone rogue and hatched a diabolical plan to not only bring her canine enemies to heel, but take down her former kitty comrades and make the world her scratching post. Faced with this unprecedented threat, cats and dogs will be forced to join forces for the first time in history in an unlikely alliance to save themselves - and their humans.

Un-reviewed by Urban Cinefile
"Kids say the smartest things. A few minutes into a screening of Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, a child near me turned to his mother and asked, "Why is Kitty Galore called Kitty Galore?" Exactly what I was wondering. I tried to hear her whispered answer but couldn't. It was short, so she probably hadn't bothered telling him that someone thought it was a good idea to name a children's movie after a crude double-entendre in an old James Bond film, or explaining what "cynical" means.

The original was an innocuously charming comedy with a story built around the fate of a human family. The sequel is something much more common: a bloated spy-and-action-film pastiche, predicated mostly on the Bond movies ..." - Mike Hale, New York Times (extract)
