Synopsis

Disney’s 27th animated feature brings Charles Dickens’ tale of orphaned pickpockets in the streets of London to the screen with a colorful cast of canine characters.

Dove Review

Loosely based on the Dickens classic Oliver Twist. The main characters are replaced by an orphaned kitty taken under paw by streetwise stray dogs. This lively musical production features the voice talents of Joey Lawrence, Billy Joel, Cheech Marin, Dom Deluise, Bette Midler, and Robert Loggia, with an upbeat score by Billy Joel, Huey Lewis and Ruben Blades. Like KFC, Disney has secret ingredients. Certainly one of them is the sheer love that radiates from their finest productions. Never condescending, never phlegmatic, the simple messages of good vs. evil and the hope of an idyllic ever-after continues to enthrall audiences, young and old. Bravo, Disney! Oliver and Company is another gem!

Content Description
