The Truth About Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

By Jake 

When Katy asked me to fill in for her weekly movie preview column I was a bit hesitant. Then fate tapped me on the shoulder and handed me a ticket to an early screening of "Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore." I knew by the subtitle of this film that I was in for a wild ride, but even I could not have imagined just how crazy this movie would be.

Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore
In the sequel to the sizzling 1996 hit "The Truth About Cats and Dogs," Kitty Galore returns from his long vacation in Siberia. Uma Thurman returns as Noelle, the character that made her famous, and Kitty Galore will stop at nothing to get revenge on her for running him out of the country.
Janeane Garofalo once again plays the shock jock radio star DJ Abby. While Kitty Galore was away, Abby became the number one radio personality in Wisconsin, the picturesque setting of this film. Abby invites Kitty to stay with her in her Milwaukee penthouse. Abby still has ill feelings toward Noelle due to the events of the first film.
What about the dogs? There are so many dogs in this film you will not believe your fucking eyes. Especially since this movie is in glorious 3D. That is one whole dimension better than the first film. When Noelle hears of Kitty Galore's plans to take her out in an interview on Abby's top rated show, she enlists the help of every dog she has ever met. The dog from Beethoven even makes a cameo, but the dog from Beverly Hills Chihuahua wanted too much money for his brief appearance.
I will not ruin the ending to this film, but it is quite possibly one of the most exciting climaxes committed to celluloid. I thought I was going to have a heart attack from all of the excitement, and the three chili dogs I got at the concession stand did not do me any favors either.

I give this movie a 9/10. It would have been higher, but knowing that the dog from Beverly Hills Chihuahua was asked, but did not appear, kind of took me out of the fantasy world created by this hilarious action/comedy.


  1. Finally, an opportunity for Janeane Garafalo to revive her career! Things have been kind of shaky since Air American went under.
