This refreshing approach to cute talking pets films is a kind of subversive 'Lassie' meets 'Mission: Impossible'. These dogs don't just talk, they use surveillance equipment and have a solemn mission to protect scientist Goldblum as he invents a cure for dog allergies. The cats are evil, hell-bent on conquering the world and their special agents have deadly ninja skills and vicious weapons. The animatronic effects are of a pretty high standard, but it's the animal trainers you're in real awe of. The occasional wander into sentimental territory and slowing up of pace can be forgiven by the madly original idea, lively action sequences and knockabout humour.
