Oh Oh Chihuahua

Chihuahuas Chloe and Papi have got married in a very human ceremony and just a few months later start their own family when Chloe gives birth to a brood of 5 puppies. But as Chloe and Papi try to get to grips with their mischievous pups they realise that their owner Sam Cortez's (Marcus Coloma) parents are on the verge of losing their home as they are unable to pay the mortgage. Deciding they need to help out the dogs enter a dog competition but come across doggy racism when they are deemed not right to win the competition. But just then the dogs stumble across a bank robbery and manage to foil it and hopefully the bank will reward them by letting the mortgage go.

I really didn't care for the first "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" and found it incredibly vacuous for any grown up who found themselves having to watch it. In fact whilst it was inoffensive for children it had little depth to it to feed their young minds. As you might expect when I came across the direct to DVD sequel "Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2" I had no expectations for ever and the only thing I could take comfort in was that it would be difficult to make it worse.

So here is the good news, if you want something to put on to amuse young children "Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2" will do the job with talking dogs, daft escapades and now 5 mischievous little Chihuahuas to add to the chaos. But again if you are a grown up there is little to keep you entertained as it is all at an incredibly junior level with again no depth or meaning to stimulate anyone's brains. In fact one of the few grown up charms from the first movie which was recognizing the actor's voices is lost with only returning one from the first movie being George Lopez. Don't get me wrong as "Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2" has some recognizable names and faces such as Susan Blakely, Lupe Ontiveros and French Stewart but they make no impression.

What this all boils down to is that "Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2" probably still works for its intended very young audience but once again has nothing for grown ups who find themselves having to watch it with children.
