Описание: Рисованный, цветной, полнометражный мультфильм про котенка Оливера, которого никто не купил. Он остался один на страшных улицах Нью-Йорка и выжил, только благодаря друзьям. Героями этой почти детективной истории будут кошки, собаки и люди, ибо бомж Спайк, в "дыре" которого нашли приют котенок и несколько бездомных собак, задолжал деньги крупному мафиози. Лучшим другом и защитником малыша стал фокстерьер Доджер, большой специалист по краже сосисок. Вместе они должны помочь своему хозяину, иначе им грозит стать "закуской для полдых доберманов" у которых ечть ошейники, но нет совести. Много современной музыки и песен. Рассчитан мультфильм на детей от 5 лет и старше.
Рецензии: When I heard about this film when I was a little kid, I was too little to remember seeing it in the theater, I was only two when I first saw it. I was excpecting a sentimental, cutsie, sweet, cat/dog movie. I never even saw any of the movie until Pocahontas came out, and I rented the Disney's Sing Along Songs Colors of The Wind Volume,where "Why Should I Worry was on it. I never saw it untill I was 11, when I rented it on video. Back then I had a pretty intense interest in that movie, and it lead to a phase of me being dog crazy. now I'm cat crazy, and prefer cats. The music rocks it was like 80's rock and roll. "Why Should I Worry",and alot more so, "Streets of Gold" has become a theme song to me, it'suplifting and gives me an optimistic attitude that I "Make an art out of staying alive",to make it simpler, it gives me an attitude I can survive trecharous roads, dodge semis, and escape from armed psychos, gangsters etc. when I'm down in the dumps and feel incompetent, and don't think I'll be able to get my Driver's License, and survive the real world. And it gives me a message about surviving spiritual life too.
I go on long bike rides where I constantly look to make sure no big vehicles are too close to me, make moves to avoid it, and bride my bike everywhere almost like it's my car, and "Why Should I Worry" is like my theme song, "I may not have a dime, but I got street saviore." Aside from that, you know how most Disney animated Classics, are usually set during ancient times during the Middle ages or before? Well forget that, and see how the choice of music is hip 80's. The Boss, instead of some sorcerer, or witch. Is a modern day bad guy, a gangster Crime Boss. The villain seems like Robert De Niro in GoodFellas or a Bronx Tale. The film doesn't seem too kiddie-ish, when the characters are a bunch of thieves, changed from humans in Oliver Twist to Dogs, and a hobo gangster, Fagin. Tito the chichuauha is hilarious, along with him there's the fat bulldog, Francis, Einstein the Great Dane, and Rita the Afghan hound, and the Artful Dodger. The plot maybe somewhat alike a Bronx Tale, with a De Niro-ish figure, and gangsters, and thieves in New York City. I think it's better having a disney movie set in the 80's New York, the weaons used today are used by the crime Boss, when he kidnaps Jenny, the little girl, after Fagin holds the cat for Ransom.
Georgette is good as Jenny's narcissistic Poodle. What I found attractive and not something you'd see in a cartoon often is that a grown- man is babysitting Jenny. Winston, an old guy, while her parents are away. <br
