The plot had so many loop holes in it that I guessed everything that was going to happen before it happened. Wow I forgot about the '3D', this movie only had about 5 of 3D scenes and weren't even impressive also. They try and cram as much CGI and silly dialog as possible in this movie including a rather useless magician character and a pigeon that I wanted to skewer just to shut it up. I barely heard even a laugh or giggle in the audience except for the few under 10 set kids and even they looked bored after-wards. As is said earlier there were a few good scenes but the key word is "few". This sequel just wasn't good or funny. The original Cats & Dogs was not a joy of modern cinema, but it made me laugh with its ingenious parody of the spy cinema. It is a mistake to expect too much from a film like this, but I always have the slight hope of finding filmmakers who do not take the family cinema as an excuse for reducing to the minimum the intelligence from the screenplays, or ignore the most basic precepts of cinematographic narrative.
All in all, this movie was unfunny and poorly developed. The characters were dull, the effects were average, the humour was completely stupid and the human acting was idiotic and over the top. If you're hoping for a good movie, especially for your kids, try somewhere else.
On the whole I was so bored I wanted to leave but that would have been rude, so I took a nap.
