Last week I received a copy of Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 to review.
We hadn’t seen the first one so I was unsure of the storyline but since the movie contains talking dogs, (J most favourite animal in the whole wide world), I knew this movie would be a sure fire hit.
The story centres around newlyweds Papi and Chloe and their five adorable puppies.When their human owners are in trouble, it’s Chihuahua power to the rescue. Working as a family Papi and Chloe enter highly competitive Beverly Hills Dog Show in a bid to win the grand prize and save their family’s home. However in order to win they have to out-bark the reigning champion, a stuck-up Poodle named Appoline. Without giving too much away they encounter a problem during the contest and so don’t win actually win, however the story does have a happy ending and they do save the day.
J and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie from start to finish and it really didn’t matter that we hadn’t seen the first movie as this had a storyline all of it’s own. It’s packed with funny moments, oh so cute moments and action and adventure moments. J’s favourite moments from the film were Papi’s stories of Chihuahua Warriors and has now retold the stories several times He didn’t really understand the storyline, people not being able to make mortgage payments and so facing the possibility of losing the house unless the dogs save the day………… but again that didn’t matter. To him it was a very funny movie with cute talking dogs and that was enough…………..although he did point out to me “dogs can’t really talk can they Mum!”
Overall I’d say this was a great family movie that’s definatly worth watching. It’s available in shops now and it’s one of those movies that the whole family can enjoy so I would recommend buying it. In fact J enjoyed it so much I’m going to get him the first movie too
