Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3 “Viva La Fiesta” hits stores on September 18, 2012. Thanks to Chip and Disney Studios I got a sneak peek at this Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy film. Just like Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 this film is only released for home viewing. My 5 year old and I recently watched the first two Beverly Hills Chihuahua movies and were anticipating the new adventures of Papi, Chloe and their puppies. We were curious what their two-legged family was up to as well. So we sat down with our own four-legged family member and watched the movie!
Leaving the Nest (or Doggy Bed)
The film begins with everyone looking to spread their wings (or arms and paws in this case). Sam and Rachel move out of Aunt Viv’s and take jobs in a posh, doggy boutique resort. Chloe is ready for her pups to attend Doggy Day School, who up to now have been homeschooled by Papi (Voice of George Lopez). Papi is along for the ride with his “Corazon” Chloe and to protect his precious pups. As in Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, Papi is doing his best to instill a sense of Latin American pride in his pups. The push and pull of the traditional, blue-collar Papi and the Beverly Hills Chloe transcends into this film for some humorous scenes.
July 3rd, 2012, Disney released Home on the Range on DVD/Blu Ray Combo Pack. This is one of the lesser known, yet one of our family’s favorite, Disney movies. Maggie, played by Roseanne Barr, is sent off to live at Patch of Heaven dairy farm, filled with animals who get along with each other. She’s a little on the rough side-which makes Roseanne Barr the perfect actress for this role. The other two dairy cows, Mrs. Caloway and Grace, eventually accept Maggie for her rough edges. The three of them, along with Buck the horse begin working together to save Patch of Heaven from the bounty hunters. Pearl, the owner of Patch of Heaven needs to choose a cow to sell in order to pay her rent to Alameda Slim. She can’t decide! To help save the farm, Maggie, Mrs. Caloway, Grace, and Buck set off to town. This comes with its own challenges! Along the way, Buck has a fantasy that he is a karate kicking stallion who always steps in to save the day. The cows get caught up in Alameda Slim‘s yodeling call, and before we know it they’re back on track to town again.
This movie is super cute. The music is fun, and our favorite scene is when Alameda Slim is trying to yodel the cows to come to him. There is some good adult-tongue in cheek-comedy to keep the grown ups entertained. I wouldn’t say it’s one of Disney’s more “magical”, fairly talish films. But overall, it’s a fun movie to watch. The special features add some fun on the Blu Ray video. For example, you can enter the “Joke Corral” and hear such goodies as “What did the Cheddar say to the Swiss?” ”Who cut the cheese?!”. Or, even better, “What do you call a cow with no milk?” ”A Milk Dud!” Ha ha!
Another great Disney movie is joining the world in a Blu Ray Combo Pack format. Disney’s Home on the Range will be released on Blu Ray Combo Pack July 3, 2012. Produced by Alice Dewey, who brought us Hercules, this Blu Ray video will be a perfect addition to your collection.
For the first time on Disney Blu-ray come join the fun as the resident animals of a dairy farm go bounty hunting for a notorious outlaw to save their home. From the stunning animation and spectacular original songs written by Alan Menken – Academy Award®* winning composer of Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin – Home on the Range is the perfect fun-filled adventure for the whole family! When a greedy outlaw schemes to take possession of “Patch Of Heaven” dairy farm, three determined cows, a karate-kicking stallion named Buck, and a colorful corral of critters join forces to save their home. The stakes are sky high as this unlikely animal alliance risks their hides and match wits with a mysterious band of bad guys.
