Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

Formerly fluffy Kitty Galore is now a pink shadow of her old self, and she wants to punish the dogs that chased her into a vat of hair removal cream. But making those few dogs pay isn't enough for her, so she plots to torment dogs all over the world. Meanwhile, Diggs, a former police German shepherd, is recruited by a veteran spy dog named Butch to help take a bite out of the feline underworld.

There's just one catch: Not all cats agree with Kitty. So Diggs, a lifelong cat hater, must overcome his prejudices while working with secret agent Catherine—a cat!—to stop Kitty and her evil plan. Diggs and Catherine work together with Butch, a spacey pigeon named Seamus, and undercover spy cats and dogs everywhere, to save the planet—and dogs' sanity.

From past experiences, Diggs believes he cannot trust others, but, with Butch's and Catherine's help, he learns this is a lie. He also learns the value of teamwork—even with cats. There is a lot of mild violence, including explosions, crashes and falls. Name-calling is used throughout the film, and there are many vague references to adult content that are inappropriate for a children's film.

Cats & Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore’s lessons in courage, partnership and obeying the rules are great, but every time you start to warm up to the tale, these fuzzy creatures say or do something a bit off color. And that’s a kitty cryin’ shame.
