101 Dalmatians

We are going to talk about the animated (1961) One Hundred and One Dalmatians as well as the live-action (1996) 101 Dalmatians. We'll talk about why the different formats for the names are important and we have wildly different feelings about the two movies.

We also have some corrections and additional information for Zootopia.

Things we talked about:

  • 02:20 - Nebraska's Safe Haven Law snafu
  • 05:30 - How to find this movie on Disney Plus
  • 08:30 - Both versions on Rotten Tomatoes
  • 10:50 - Troll dolls and South Street in Philadelphia
  • 15:00 - The cast
  • 18:57 - There's nothing redeeming about Cruella de Vil
  • 22:00 - Grimsby is Eric's Caretaker in the Little Mermaid
  • 29:00 - The plot
  • 39:30 - This movie made us want to watch other Disney movies
  • 40:40 - Let's talk about Sergeant Tibbs for a minute
  • 48:00 - We just don't understand this sequence
  • 56:25 - What is a long cigarette holder called?
  • 58:25 - Our scores
  • 1:00:50 - Zootopia corrections

Bolt

We don't have any strong feelings about this movie and we are really wondering if anyone else does? We're pretty sure Disney doesn't. This movie is so neutral that we repeatedly get sidetracked: talking about cats, trying to decide which states are actually part of the Midwest, and food waste. I think we actually have stronger feelings about the other topics we discussed than we do about this movie.

Things we talked about:

  • 06:10 - What's up with the cast?
  • 09:51 - People still own VHS tapes?
  • 17:55 - Kids' reactions to Bolt
  • 20:00 - Bolt's plot
  • 26:40 - If Bolt were a real-life dog, this movie would be really cruel
  • 30:25 - Is it illegal to declaw a cat in NY State?
  • 38:40 - Do they end up in Ohio in other movies like Toy Story
  • 48: 48 - John Travolta, Tom Cruise, and Scientology in Hollywood
  • 1:00:00 - Our opinions and determinations
  • Up Next: 101 Dalmatians, both animated and live-action
