Excerpt: Beverly Hills Chihuahua is a riches to rags story. The pampered princess Chloe (editor: not technically a princess) gets kidnapped while in Mexico, and has to try and find her way back to Beverly Hills. Papi is devoted to her, and once he finds out she is missing - he gets on the trail. Chloe (who is voiced by Drew Barrymore) meets other canines along the way who either want to help or hurt her.
Excerpt: I remember seeing billboards for this film back in late summer of 2008. I knew it would be a hit, simply on the concept. Beverly Hills Chihuahua features pampered pooches who, through the magic of CGI, talk to each other and look cute in every scene. How could you go wrong? The only thing this film is guilty of is exploiting our love of dogs in people clothes, and not doing much more than giving us exactly what we'd expect.
Excerpt: Saaie en voorspelbare film rond pratende dieren. De chihuahua van een mode-goeroe loopt in Mexico de straat op en merkt dat het buitenleven veel minder chic is dan haar dagelijkse bestaan. De beelden zijn kleurrijk, de film zelf is dat niet.
