One of the gifts the kids picked out for my birthday was Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2. We all fell in love with the first movie and when we heard they were making another, we waited with much anticipation. Unfortunately, after seeing it was released directly onto DVD, the concern took over.
We all cuddled up on the couch – humans and dogs alike – and almost immediately, I saw the lack of famous Hollywood actors as lead character and that even Chloe was played by a different dog. I had to get the original out of my mind and see this one separately. No comparing allowed!
All in all, I loved how they used the history of the Chihuahua breed and the Aztecs to teach the importance of family and working together. A great family movie. The story line was a bit rugged – not very smooth – but the puppies were ADORABLE!! Of course, all Chihuahua puppies are!! The dog show scenes are so far off from the truth when it comes to AKC shows – a very “Hollywood” visual for what really happens. (I would totally recommend checking out your local Chihuahua Club to see a REAL dog show).
