Now available on Blu-ray and DVD combo pack is the newest addition to the hit movie franchise, Beverly Hills Chihuahua called Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta!
I have been a fan of Beverly Hills Chihuahua ever sine I saw the first move. I love the two previous movies but I must say that the third film is by far my most favorite.
Here is a brief synopsis;
Everyone’s favorite talking Chihuahuas Papi (voice of George Lopez) and Chloe (voice of Odette Annable) are back, joined by their five playful pups in an all-new family comedy. It’s canine chaos as Papi’s family (dog and human) move into the posh Langham Hotel, complete with a luxurious doggy spa. But there’s trouble in puppy paradise when Rosa, the littlest member of the pack, feels smaller and less special than ever. Now it’s up to Papi to help Rosa find – and celebrate – her inner strength, which turns out to be bigger than she ever dreamed and reminds humans and canines alike of the importance of family, friends and teamwork.
Papi and Chloe’s pack of five pups include the voices of Kay Panabaker (“Little Birds”) as Rosa, Emily Osment (TV’s “Hannah Montana”) as Pep, Madison Pettis (Disney Junior’s “Jake and the Never Land Pirates,” “Game Plan”) as Lala, Logan Grove (TV’s “Young Justice”) as Papi, Jr., and Delany Jones as Ali.
The canine cast features the voice talents of2Miguel Ferrer (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” “Traffic”) as Delgado, Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” Hispanic National Radio Morning Show DJ) as Humberto and Tom Kenny (“SpongeBob Square Pants”) as Sebastian.
The film’s human stars include Marcus Coloma (TV’s “Make It or Break It,” South Beach”) and Erin Cahill (“Fast Track: No Limits”, “Boogeyman 3”) who reprise their roles from “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2” as the dog’s masters, Sam and Rachel Cortez, plus Frances Fisher (“The Lincoln Lawyer” and TV’s “Torchwood”) as travel writer Amelia James.
If you were to grade this movie on a scale of 1-10 for cuteness, this film would score a 10+++ The cuteness factor is through the roof! The pups in the film are just darling. Not only that the film makers were able to give each dog character a lot of personality and their voice actors are a perfect fit.
My family, including my hard to please teens, found this movie to be hysterical. There were plenty of points in the film where we would all laugh at the same time. If you are looking for a fun family movie look no further. Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta! is a delightful film the entire family will enjoy, from 5 – 105.
The film makers did a great job syncing up the mouth movement on the dogs with the words that were being spoken. You would think the dogs were really talking. I have seen other films with talking animals which look phony. The pups in this film look like they really could talk. Another words they were very believable.
One of the movies sub-plots is the youngest pup (Rosita) Quinceanera celebration. It was fun to learn more about the Mexican culture behind the Quinceanera celebration. When a young girl turns 15 (or in this case a pup) it’s celebrated in a HUGE way. In real life some of these celebrations cost as much as weddings.
There are a few different story lines but they are all very easy to follow. Papi (George Lopez) is the central character who is in all the different sub-plots.
My family gives this film two thumbs (or shall I say paws?) up. It’s a laugh-out-loud film the entire family will love.
Look for Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta! where ever movies are sold.
