The Adventures of Milo & Otis

The Adventures of Milo and Otis Movie

Rated: G

Year: 1990

Cast: Narrated by Dudley Moore

A sweet road-trip and buddy movie from Japan, starring a cat and a pug. Japanese novelist and zoologist Masanori Hata coaxes whimsical performances from his furry stars. Lots of adventures ensue: floating down river in a box, being rescued by a sea turtle, almost hatching a hen's egg, and getting pinched by a crab.

What Parents Like: This is a calm and enchanting ride. Nobody spills drinks in the car, and if a cat and dog can get along on a road trip, so can you.

What Kids Like: This is one of those movies where being observant counts. No detail is too small or overlooked. Even the smallest child will be entranced by the visual parade of creatures, including a fox, a bear, a snake, hedgehogs, and seagulls.
