"Being the chihuahua lover that I am, I was first in line at our local cinema to see this flick!
I loved it from begining to end, however it wanst exactly what I expected. From some of the previews it looked like there would be lots more chihuahuas in most of the film, but for the most part it is two chis (Chole and Papi) along with a German Shepard. Towards the end is about 5-7 mintues of films with LOTS of chihuahuas, include a bit of history about the breed, some pretty cool looking aztec ruins, and chis of every shape and color, including brindles, blue, chocolates, blacks, merles, spotted, fawn and even long coats!
Has great themes about finding your roots, not giving up on your true friends and helping others when they need it the most. Also, that no matter what your situtation is, there is a place where you belong.
I went with a friend from work (we are both adults) and we both loved it. We laughed and cried, and agreed we will see it again and buy it when it comes to video!
Also, kudos to Disney. At the end of this film there is a note about how each pets deserves a permenant loving home, and if you purchase a dog, to do research on the breed!"
Beverly Hills Chihuahua

"Even with all the hype and not expecting a good film, Beverly Hills Chihuahua is wonderful, delightful and funny. I call it a modern day Lady and The Tramp. After reading one review on Amazon about how sad, implausible, etc..I wondered what the viewer really wanted and that maybe he/she had been damaged earlier in life by sweet, dog loving, sad but good ending movies.
It's a dog lovers movie and a very good kids movie with plenty of "life lessons".....just like all Disney dog movies. Hooray for Disney. How else would little children learn about dogs and love and life and loyalty. Animation (dogs talking) done very, very well. I'm 59 years old and I've not seen a sweeter movie in years."
Laughing and Barking the Way Through This Delightful Canine

"I am writing this after having seen the film, but before the DVD has come out. I know how much cinephiles loathe this film, but, dudes, loosen up! Sure, it is more than a little "sappy", but take some time out to be "sappy and happy" viewing this movie! The adventures of these chihuahuas, other dogs, and assorted animals is a delight, especially for those who have a "tender spot" for the hounds! This movie never was meant to appeal to the viewer's sophistication. On the other hand, it is not any sort of "chihuahua exploitation film", either.
My favourite hounds in this California-Mexico romp are Papí, Chloé's ardent male admirer and very determinedly valient chihuahua, and Delgado, the down-on-his-luck, butch German shepherd who comes to the rescue and various acts of kindness for Chloé, even when he misinterprets the reasons for Chloé's second disappearance. Then, too, who cannot love the thronging hoarde of chihauhuas among the ruins of an ancient indigenous culture? Seeing Chloé try to find the mighty voice of her "inner chihuahua" (as opposed to pampered pet squeaks and whimpering) with the aid of the leader of this pack of chihuahuas is very amusing; I wish that this bit of animal humour had been more extended!
This is a pack of fun, and not just for children! Have a barking good time watching this film, in the theatre or at home!"
Beautiful Story with an amazing cast.!

"This is a wonderful story about friendship, loyalty and knowing where you come from. It is for everyone of different ages. Chloe is a spoiled chihuahua who gets accidently lost in Mexico and goes on a adventure to try and get back home to Beverly Hills. Through this journey she realizes that all she knew about her life goes beyond. Then there is Papi the romantic chihuahua that loves her and that will do anything for her. At the end Chloe realizes what is really important in her life. And is not the spoiled dog she used to be..... It's a story that teaches a lesson which makes it even more special. GREAT MOVIE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!!!"
