It doesn’t glitter, it doesn’t explode. It’s just fluffy and sweet. Bean’s film suffers a bit from minor technical issues and, despite a few improvements, it just doesn’t have the same emotional impact as the original, but it still deserves a good home.
Lady and the Tramp scratches an itch for dog lovers and may satisfy the young viewer’s curiosity when digging through the family’s new Disney+ subscription. However, so much of the movie is just fine when not feeling rushed or stilted, but doesn’t offer new surprises to stand on its own.
In a world where it will be available right alongside the original film — both at a click of the exact same button for the same monthly price — I’m not entirely sure why it exists, beyond refreshing this particular IP, reminding customers about the original movie, and slightly padding out Disney+’s lineup of “original” offerings. It is harmless, and pointless.
While the decision to digitally move the dogs’ snouts when they speak English to each other is almost off-putting enough to negate the effect altogether, fur-and-blood puppies aren’t the only pleasantly old-fashioned thing about this “Lady and the Tramp.”
It was cute and enjoyable but some things are better back in the day and this in some part feels old but I still think somethings should have been changed or removed entirely but still watch this over the original if you want to decide witch one
Oh no. I hate how well this worked on me. Granted, between my own pup looking eerily similar to Tramp and the fact that we traveled to Savannah the week before watching this, I am a bit biased. While I'm on the animation, it was a little wonky with Lady's face at first, but it seemed to improve as the movie went on (or I just got used to it). It also might have been that it looked better when they didn't stick her tongue out after every line, which they did in her first speaking scene. The other dogs looked fine throughout...except when they were doing stunts. I obviously don't want real dogs doing stunts, but it looked pretty bad in some. Especially when they faked any dog running. There's something they just couldn't get right with that. I also wasn't fond of the baby-talking puppies or the overly auto-tuned singing. All that said, the core story works, the replacement for the siamese cat song was great, and even if you haven't JUST been to Savannah, the setting is beautiful. So all that in mind, I enjoyed this movie far, FAR more than I expected to. It turns out giving dogs the live action treatment worked much better on me than it did when Disney did the same thing with warthogs and baboons. Big surprise, I know. A few hiccups keep it from surpassing the original, but this is still a great watch for fans of the original story, Savannah, or just DOGS.
