    Director Stephen Herek does an admirable balancing job, though the movie slows whenever the animals solo onscreen. [27 Nov 1996 Pg.01.D]

    I know that this film is an epic, but I will not be influenced by this or I will base my critique on the fact that a film is epic or not.

    This movie is a classic! Maybe I am the only one who actually prefers this version to the animated one, but I am a Disney lover and think this one has more depth. Glenn Close was perfect casting for Cruella De Vil. She is actually evil, and really brings the character to life. Plus the dogs are so much cuter in real life! Full Review »
