"Humor, tenderness & warmth. [This] heavenly dog movie is family's best friend!"
-San Diego Parent Magazine
From the director of The Secret of NIMH, An American Tail and The Land Before Time comes this "bright and inventive" (Roger Ebert) animated classic! Boasting brilliant visuals, a tender storyline and character voices from Loni Anderson, Judith Barsi, Dom De Luise, Melba Moore, Charles Nelson Reilly, Burt Reynolds and Vic Tayback, All Dogs Go To Heaven is a must-see for all children... and for everyone who's young at heart!
Set in 1939 New Orleans, this colorful, song-filled story centers on Charles B. Barkin, a roguish German Shepherd with the charm of a con man and the heart of a marshmallow. Out for revenge against his double-crossing former partner, a cigar-chomping pit bull known as Carface, Charlie finds himself guardian to a lonely little orphan named Anne-Marie. Her astounding ability to talk to animals leads this unlikely pair on an adventure packed with thrills, laughs, tars and true love.
I'm giving this a 3 star rating because I vaguely remember enjoying it as a child. However, I have not yet watched it as an adult.
Rated G (MPAA)
