Synopsis

Synopsis: A pampered Beverly Hills chihuahua named Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) who, while on vacation in Mexico with her owner Viv’s (Jamie Lee Curtis) niece, Rachel (Piper Perabo), gets lost and must rely on her friends to help her get back home before she is caught by a dognapper who wants to ransom her. In the meantime, Papi (voiced by George Lopez), a male chihuahua who is in love with her is in pursuit of her. Papi’s master (Manolo Cardona), a handsome young gardener for Viv, slowly develops a romantic interest in Rachel.

    Honestly, I can't help but notice all the people who once again arerating this movie without seeing it and just because they suspect themovie is going to be bad, they rate it anyways as a one. Well, I'mgoing to once again give you an honest review, I saw this movie lastSaturday and honestly enjoyed it. I know I'm going to receive a lot ofbashing, but I always look at movies as what they are supposed to be,this was meant to be a children's movie, it's meant for fun. Rememberhow we all had those cheesy animal movies when we were kids as well?Well Beverly Hills Chihuahua is no different, it's just updated withtoday's world. I thought it was a good idea, we see all these richpeople now-a-days with the way they just lavish their dogs with jewelsthat cost more than people's houses, it takes a little joke at it. Thestory is recycled, but it's still a lot fun to watch and has somereally fun scenes.

    Chloe is a Beverly Hills Chihuahua who is just so pampered, withclothes, jewelery, and a life style anyone would die to have. Herowner, Vivian, has to go away on a business trip and leaves her partygirl niece, Rachel, to watch Chloe. When they go to Mexico, Chloe iskidnapped and put into a dog fight… she is then saved by another dog,Delgado, who is going to help her get back to Beverly Hills. But whenthe man who runs the dog fights finds out that Chloe is worthsomething, he sends his Doberman dog, Diablo, after her. Rachel, theland scaper, Sam, and his dog, Pepi who is also in love with Chloe, areon the hunt to find her and get her home safe and sound.

    Beverly Hills Chihuahua is a fun movie if you give it a decent chance,I thought it was a nice chance from the constant CGI we always havewith these animal stories. I was also impressed that the talking didn'tlook so fake with the dogs. I tell you though I'm convinced that thedog that played Delgado is the same dog from I Am Legend, that dog justdeserves an Oscar, lol, come on, you gotta agree. Well, Beverly HillsChihuahua is a great family film, as for seeing it on your own or witha friend, I would say that it's worth the rental more so. It's a sillymovie I admit, but I had a fun time watching it and I wish IMDb userswould give this movie the fair chance it deserves.

    I agree with some of the previous reviewers – how can you rate a moviewithout even seeing it?!? Well, guess that gives us the right to rateTHEM without even knowing them! I give those people a 1.5.

    This is a KID'S movie and to rate it a 2 is ridiculous. It's not thebest movie but it sure is much better than A LOT of recentkid's/animated films. My kids, 4 & 5, loved this movie and that'sreally my biggest requirement. There are many others where they werebored and wanted to leave in less than 30 minutes.

    To the people voting it so low (especially ones who vote withoutviewing) – GET A LIFE!

    Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey was probably one of the bestanimal movie around, and everything that that movie was, this movieisn't. It isn't spectacular, it isn't breathtaking, it isn'tadventurous, it isn't funny, it just goes to show how low Disney willsink to earn money from your children. Take it from me, I'm only 15years old, and even I was holding my forehead with my hand and shakingmy head, wondering: "Why??… WHY?!" It might be good for preschoolerswho laugh at stupid jokes, but my goodness, I'd be surprised if thiseven makes 2 stars on the official ratings list. To put it alltogether, I not only want my money back, but I am going to torch thisticket in my fireplace tonight and forget all about it. @_@

    I have been using IMDb to obtain feedback on movies for several yearsnow, and what I find is that people here tend to be a little too biastoward A-list, blockbuster movies. Chihuahua does not fall into thatcategory by any means, but that does not warrant dismissing itoutright. It is true that the film's cast could have been put to betteruse, but given the parameters set by the Disney-style writing, they didwhat they could and it was enough to let me enjoy their performances. Iread a review on here that commented on the inaccuracy of geographicalinformation. I agree that if Disney is going to make a film like this,it is unfortunate that they do not take the time to educate their youngaudiences a little. We wouldn't be talking doctorate level researchhere, just basic fact-checking.

    The plot of this movie was not deep, but not many Disney movies NEED tobe in order to cater to their young audience and family demographic. Iam a twenty-something and I am able to tolerate Disney's material,because I accept it for what it is: shallow, vapid entertainmentdesigned to convey squeaky-clean ideals to impressionable youth.Sometimes, they take that squeaky-cleanliness too far, like makinglight of the dog fights, but overall, it is all rooted in the sameobjective: to maintain their target demographic and intake revenue.

    To the people who reference the different caliber of Disney'sentertainment ten or more years ago, I concur with you. It would begood for Disney to trace its roots a bit and return to basics, but itwould take a lot of cutting through green to accomplish that.

    I enjoyed this movie. There was a comment on the discussion boardmentioning that the trailer distorted people's initial impression. I amone of those people. Once I got into the movie though, I applied myusual preconditions for judging Disney films and had a good time. Itwas cute and in Disney's typical fashion, it contained half-bakedattempts to teach the kids a thing or two (inaccurate or vague as theywere).

    Go into it knowing it's Disney and will thus inherit thecharacteristics of all their work, and you'll be fine.

    My wife is a dog-lover (I am not). We raised pugs for many years andthey are all gone to doggy heaven now. When I saw a film preview thatincluded a pug, I just had to get my wife to this movie. (She willrarely go to a movie – many are just plain bad). We had a GREAT time.It is a comedy, so let's not worry about the misplaced geography whichI did not notice until reading some of the negative views here. I am agreat admirer of the film-making art. The freight train episode is anamazing piece of film work. The attack of the mountain lions is quiteconvincing. Both of the latter we found quite convincing. Every poochin this film deserves an Oscar as do the humans and the writers. Thisis a fine family movie, for both children and adults. Don't take itseriously. It is a comedy. It is an entertainment, and we just felt weneeded something like this to get away from the depressing news -economic disaster in America, fires in California to the North andSouth of us. This film is just what the doctor ordered for an evening.

    Alright, so tons of people are bashing this movie even though theydidn't see it. I thought it would be dumb too… until my friendpractically dragged me to see it with her. It sounds like this moviewould be about chihuahuas in Beverly Hills and their luxurious livesand basically a 'Clueless' with doggies instead. And it is, for thefirst 10 minutes or so.

    But then, it transitions into something completely different than whereI thought it was going. I liked how it eventually talked about culturalidentity and not forgetting where you're from, which was a gooddirection for the movie. With that, it was good how the human girl andthe girl chihuahua both become less ignorant as the film progresses.And, come on, it was adorable how this was basically a chick flick withlittle doggies instead! It was pretty hilarious in some parts (GeorgeLopez as Papi!) especially with some interesting song choices, lol. Myonly quibbles were the slight sappiness with the whole Disneyhas-to-have-a-moral dialogue and that Drew Barrymore's voice wasannoying after a while as the lead chihuahua with her whining… Still,it was pretty great and it got the whole theater laughing at severalpoints.

    It's nice to have a movie that doesn't take itself that seriously oncein a while :] So basically, go see this before you condemn it to arating worse than "Gigli"'s!

    Me, my husband and our two children ages 4 and 7 went to see this movieand we all had a great time! It kept everyone's attention for theentire length of the movie. It was hilarious, fast paced andheartwarming. I'm not sure why the movie got such bad ratings on here.I think people are being way too critical. The theater was full ofcouples without children, which was surprising to me, but it seemedlike everyone enjoyed the movie and no one walked out!!! Before seeingthe movie, I read the comments here and went into it with littleexpectations. I was happily surprised, enough so to take the time toregister here at IMDb and state my opinion. 'Nough said!!

    This movie has a lower rating than "Superhero movie". And that wasabsolutely crap. I am not a child and not a dog lover. Still i foundmyself liking this movie.And no I am not suffering from any mentalillness or something like that. Honestly the nerve of people to saysomething like that. I wonder if most of the reviewers actually haveseen the movie. If so what did these people expect from a movie likethis. A talking Chihuahua reciting a poem from Shakespeare or just acute dog mixed up in some little adventure. Compared to previous Disneymovies about animals it is on the same level. So what if it isn'toriginal. What movie is these days. This movie hasn't got one dullmoment. I sat through the movie without ever looking at the clock. AndI can tell you that a lot of the big titles that came out this yearwished they had the same effect on me.Most of the box office titlesmade this year have disappointed me much more because I had highexpectations. For "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" i had no expectationswhatsoever and got rewarded with fun.

    I took my toddler to see this because he loves dogs, and I thought itwould be a great chance or him to see his first film. I was notexpecting to enjoy the film, but was truly amazed by how well done itwas. Sure the dogs were cute & it definitely has appeal to children.But I found the messages (about finding your inner strength, being agood friend, not being stuck up, and about the importance of adoptingstray animals & caring for those that are lost or abandoned) verywell-executed, they were clear without bludgeoning the viewer on thehead repeatedly as so many children's films do.

    I have to say the fact that the "coyote" who was meant to smuggle Chloeacross the border was actually a Coyote, and the line about "say helloto my little friends" made me laugh long after I had left the theater.

    I plan to buy this film on DVD when it comes out & enjoy it with myfamily for years to come.

    Upon seeing the rating on IMDb, I went into this movie thinking it wasgoing to be terrible. However, it is a very entertaining film fromstart to finish…similar to the Benji movies from the 70s for thoseold enough to remember. Chloe, the main character, is a spoiled littlechihuahua from Beverly Hills who ends up lost in Mexico and enlists thehelp of some canine friends in an effort to find her way home. Shelearns some good life lessons along the way. My kids and I were gluedto the screen. Plenty of action, laughs, and occasional tears. Everychild leaving the theater with us was singing the "Chihuahua" themesong and seemed to have loved it. I don't know what those who gave thisa bad rating were expecting, but I give it a wholehearted thumbs up.8/10
