Chloe (voice of DREW BARRYMORE), a diamond-clad, bootie wearing Beverly Hills Chihuahua enjoys her luxurious lifestyle so much, she hardly notices Papi (voice of GEORGE LOPEZ), a tough looking Chihuahua who happens to be head-over-paws for the pampered pooch. But when Chloe gets lost in the rough streets of Mexico with only a street-wise German Shepherd (voice of ANDY GARCIA) to help her find her way home, Papi heads south of the border -- joining forces with a motley crew: two humans (PIPER PERABO, MANOLO CARDONA), a sly rat (voice of CHEECH MARIN) and a nervous iguana (voice of PAUL RODRIGUEZ) - to rescue his true love.

Disney has a bonafide hit on its hands with Beverly Hills Chihuahua. For the second straight week in a row, the film landed in the number one spot despite some major competition. It racked up another $17.5 million, placing its cumulative grosses at $52.5 million. Strong word of mouth has kept this one going, and it should stick around the top ten for at least a few more weeks.
Next week, look for Disney's Chihuahuas to go up against Max Payne, W., and the very funny Sex Drive. It should be one heck of a box office brawl.Read More
Ed Asner is playing the role of the old man. And the clip that was shown featured the house lifting off the ground, into the sky. When the old man finds the young scout on his doorstep, he only reluctantly lets him inside the house. It is a quick, funny bit that seemed to provide the audience with enough Pixar nourishment. Lasseter didn’t dwell too long on this masterpiece in the making. He, instead, seemed more interested in talking about Pixar’s other upcoming project.
Lasseter showed us some character designs and background art. It seems they have captured a true Cajun feel with this particular animated film. Some of the characters include a jazz playing alligator, a lovesick Cajun firefly, and a Voodoo high priest. Lasseter also made the announcement that Oprah Winfrey had joined the voice cast, which went over as pretty big news. He quickly went from talking about The Princess and the Frog into talking about one of Pixar’s best loved older films, Cars.Read More
