Double Movie Review: 101 Dalmatians - Animated Versus Live Action
My Thoughts: I had fond childhood memories of the animated version, but the live action version made little impression on me as a child. Recently I decided to watch the two and compare them. Which is better? Both films are fun family adventures. While the animated version has some plot holes and runs out of steam towards the end, the way it wraps up the story makes more sense than the live action version.
Overall, I found the animated version to be the most charming, largely because the ending was better written and thus the movie didn’t end on a disappointing note. If you’ve seen them both, which is your favorite?
Content Overview: Both films are safe for most viewers, though the crazed villainess and other scary elements, such as criminals who plan to skin puppies, might bother some children. The live action version had much more kissing, and if I recall correctly, the animated version had an immodest advertisement.
