The James Bond franchise is currently in limbo. After decades of defeating bad guys bent on world domination, lack of studio fund is what finally brought agent 007 down. So who’s going to fill the gap for a super spy movie with high tech gadgets and unusual villains? How about a dog named Diggs?
“Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” is a follow-up to the 2001 movie, “Cats and Dogs”. The original movie was about an ongoing war going on between cats and dogs that humans were unaware of. The main villain of that movie was Mr. Tinkles (Sean Hayes) who looked very similar to Blofeld’s white cat from the James Bond movies.
In the new movie, the dogs and cats must put aside their differences in order to stop a common enemy, Kitty Galore (Bette Midler). Kitty used to be an agent for the cats, but after a freak accident she now has a plot that will not only get all the digs of the world out of the way, but plans to enslave the whole human race as well. Diggs (James Marsden) is new to the dog agency and is teamed up with a veteran agent Butch (Nick Nolte). They are joined by Catherine (Christina Applegate), a cat to try to foil Kitty’s plans.
