(Clyde Geronimi, Hamilton Luske, Wolfgang Reitherman, 1961)
A Disney pic I had never fully seen until now.
The dogs are cute, but Cruella de Vil is the whole picture. She drives the action, is the subject of the best song, and is easily the most delectable and memorable component. The rest of the human characters, especially the main couple, suffer from the disease of dullness. Which, come to think of it, the dogs sort of do too. I found it sort of slow and way too British.
But my son loves the puppies though, so okay… it gets 3.0/5.0. Now kindly get ready for bed, mister.
