Warner Bros. used the old tried-and-true ploy of cats as ruthless villains who get their comeuppance in the end, with a lot of violence along the way. Still, if for nothing than the technology, this film is worth owning, especially for the younger folks.

Milo and Otis (cat and dog, respectively) are good buddies with a penchant for mischief. They get into trouble when one of them falls into the river, and they are both rushed away to a series of adventures. Japanese filmmaker Masanori Hata was four years in the making of this film, and the panoramic beauty of the scenery adds to the poignancy of the story. Available in both DVD and VHS.

The smash long-running Broadway hit, based on the book of poems by T.S. Eliot, "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" is reproduced here, with a new cast for video. Fans of Andrew Lloyd Webber will exult in the music, expecially "Memories," which has already become a modern-day classic.

The cat comes out on the short end of this romantic comedy, but the dog gets plenty of play. Janeane Garofalo and Uma Thurman star as friends-become-rivals for Ben Chaplin. Although some explicit (phone) sex makes it definitely not a family movie, it's a fun flick to watch on a rainy Saturday night with your sweetheart.
