Beverly Hills Chihuahua Reviews

  • You could say Beverly Hills Chihuahua is Lady and the Tramp meets Viva Zapata!, but seriously, I've seen zestier attitude in a Purina commercial.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • Beverly Hills Chihuahua approaches but never quite achieves a truly spectacular level of absurdity.

    Nathan Lee — New York Times

  • This piece of egregious silliness from Disney - featuring live-action canines with CGI moving mouths - isn't quite as awful as it sounds.

    Peter Bradshaw — Guardian [UK]

  • Ticket buyers older than 8 should simply close their eyes and ponder a more stimulating concept: Beverly Hills Cujo.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • As depressing as it is to find so many gifted artists reduced to making a talking-dog picture, Beverly Hills Chihuahua turns out to be genuinely sweet.

    Ann Hornaday — Washington Post

  • For most of Beverly Hills Chihuahua, all I could think about was Drew Barrymore. What might she have been up to while she recited her lines for Chloe, the spoiled yet sad-looking live-action Chihuahua that speaks in her voice.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • Sublimely silly and oddly poignant, Beverly Hills Chihuahua -- that's right, the one with the talking canines -- is Lady and the Tramp for lap dogs, Roots for pooches, Legally Blonde told from Bruiser's point of view.

    Carrie Rickey — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • The good news: Beverly Hills Chihuahua is not the apocalypse-signaling, cultural abomination its trailers make it out to be. The bad news: That's pretty much the best thing that can be said about it.

    Adam Graham — Detroit News

  • Sure, it's essentially Legally Blonde told from a dog's perspective, down to Chloe's newfound self-awareness, but darned if it isn't awfully cute.

  • The film is Beverly Hills Chihuahua. The audience is the fire hydrant.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • If Chihuahua is no Babe or Charlotte's Web, at least it's in the Alvin and the Chipmunks ballpark. Just remember nobody went to the pet store and grabbed a chipmunk on the way home after that one.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • Aside from some obvious racial stereotypes and voices that occasionally stray into Frito Bandito territory, Chihuahua has charm to spare for the adults, while offering plenty to keep young pups enthralled.

    Linda Barnard — Toronto Star

  • Beverly Hills Chihuahua is hardly Best in Show when it comes to Disney dog movies.

    Stephen Cole — Globe and Mail

  • Beverly Hills Chihuahua isn't terrible. OK, it's kind of terrible, but it's a talking-dog movie, and anyone who goes to a talking-dog movie without being prepared to step in poop deserves to ruin his shoes.

    Josh Levin — Slate

  • The story's a bit dog-eared, but the voice cast adds plenty of energetic bite.

    Michael Rechtshaffen — Hollywood Reporter

  • Despite its superficial lip-service to self-actualization/realization, there has to be more to life than what Beverly Hills Chihuahua is putting out there, which is fit for neither man nor beast.
