101 Dalmatians (1996)

Once the novelty of the (shamelessly)-cute puppy-pandering and Glenn Close’s apt Cruella wear off, this live-action adaptation is a scarily-unfocused, unspeakably-bland, veritably-pointless remake of its far-superior animated predecessor. 4/10.

Plot Synopsis: The dastardly Cruella De Vil chances upon a litter of cute dalmatian puppies and decides that their skins will make her the perfect new coat. After she sends two hapless heavies to steal the dogs, it is up to parents Pongo and Perdy to stage a daring rescue. Joining them for the adventure are their human `pets’ and host of guest animals including a cheeky raccoon and a helpful horse.

Official CLC Score: 4/10
