Looking for a Walt Disney classic of all time? Check out the latest DVD that has been added to the Children’s movie collection: Oliver and Company.
Based on the novel Oliver Twist, by Charles Dickens, Oliver, the orphaned kitten, is befriended by Dodger, the cool mutt from a New York pack of pickpocked pooches.
Soon, Oliver is lovingly adopted by Jenny, a lonely little rich girl, until tough-guy Sykes and his Doberman sidekicks try to keep Jenny and Oliver apart. Now it’s up to Oliver, Dodger, and all his colourful, street-smart canine pals to outwit the villains and rescue the girl.
Overall , Disney’s wonderfully charming classic “Oliver and Company” is one of the most best animated films you’ll ever see.
It has a fantastic cast, not to mention musical numbers from music icons such as Billy Joel, Bette Midler and Huey Lewis – very popular artists in the 1980s and 1990s – and from your parents’/grandparents’ generation.
This is a film for all the Walt Disney and feline lovers out there.
A well deserved 8/10.
