Beverly Hills Chihuahua

My three-year old son Kile loves any movie that has anything to do with a dog. Over the past few months we have watched movies ranging from Lassie to Firehouse Dog. Kile was very excited to get Beverly Hills Chihuahua from the library last week.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua is the story of a very pampered Chihuahua named Chloe. She is like a spoiled young daughter to her owner Vivian. Vivian goes on vacation to Italy and leaves Chloe in the care of her niece Rachel. Rachel and friends take Chloe on a road trip to Mexico where she is dog-napped by some unsavory types. Chloe befriends a German Shepard named Delgado and together the two try to stay one step ahead of a mean doberman named El Diablo as they try to get Chloe home. Rachel and Vivian's gardener, Sam, search Mexico for Chloe with Sam's Chihuahua, Papi who has a not so secret love for Chloe.

Overall it was a cute movie. Kile was riveted by the movie and couldn't wait to find out what happened next. He wasn't scared by the movie, although some deleted scenes that we watched were a bit scary. Ben on the other hand slept through most of the movie and said he now realizes why his dad also used to sleep during kid movies. I enjoyed it. It was a good movie for kids.
One last question though - why is Papi the center of the movie poster with Chloe (who was the star) to the side? I want to know!

  1. You ask a good question, Laura. I'm not sure why Papi is featured more prominently than Chloe (and I'd hate to think it's because Papi's a male).

    Good review. We saw this movie a few months ago.
