Oliver & Company 8 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by: dingdog, October 16, 2003

This was the last of the old-style Disney features (i.e., with a lot of songs and no love interest....seen ad nausem in those newer "date movies"!).
The main dog characters really make this show--getting Billy Joel was a real coup--and it's a satisfying entertainment in a way that hardly any of the succeeding features actually were. I ENJOY remembering the characters in this one.
And, in response to the review down below: Rita is one SEXY hound (woof!).

Oliver & Company 6 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by: Peacegal, May 29, 2002

This very 80's movie features upbeat songs and some memorable critters in the Big Apple. "Oliver & Company" is a departure from the fantasy world of many Disney movies; the city can be gritty and dangerous, signs advertise real products like Coke and USA Today, and images of the former New York skyline may be a bit disconcerting. Oliver and Dodger steal the show. Most viewers will enjoy high-strung Chihuaha Tito and prissy poodle Georgette. However, the dimwitted Great Dane Einstein and lady dog Rita (who has nothing to do, really) are uninspired. As for the human characters, Fagin is scruffy but sypathetic. The evil Sikes and his Dobermans are bound to scare younger children. I must admit the sight of Sikes loading a handgun and going after our heroes is jarring. The ending is happy but a bit too neatly packaged. The songs are upbeat but mostly forgettable, aside from Huey Lewis's theme which is played twice.
