My son loved watching this movie.

I wondered what the viewer really wanted and that maybe he/she had been damaged earlier in life by sweet, dog loving, sad but good ending movies.

Being the chihuahua lover that I am, I was first in line at our local cinema to see this flick!

I loved it from begining to end, however it wanst exactly what I expected. From some of the previews it looked like there would be lots more chihuahuas in most of the film, but for the most part it is two chis (Chole and Papi) along with a German Shepard. Towards the end is about 5-7 mintues of films with LOTS of chihuahuas, include a bit of history about the breed, some pretty cool looking aztec ruins, and chis of every shape and color, including brindles, blue, chocolates, blacks, merles, spotted, fawn and even long coats!

Has great themes about finding your roots, not giving up on your true friends and helping others when they need it the most. Also, that no matter what your situtation is, there is a place where you belong.

I went with a friend from work (we are both adults) and we both loved it. We laughed and cried, and agreed we will see it again and buy it when it comes to video!

Also, kudos to Disney. At the end of this film there is a note about how each pets deserves a permenant loving home, and if you purchase a dog, to do research on the breed!

I know how much cinephiles loathe this motion picture and others of its genre, but, dudes and gals, loosen up! Sure, "Beverly Hills Chihuahua: [1]" is more than a little "sappy", but take some time out to be "sappy and happy" viewing this movie (available as viewed on DVD, among other DVD and Blu-Ray editions, as Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment 057850/02)! The adventures of these chihuahuas, other dogs, and assorted animals is a delight, especially for those who have a "tender spot" for the hounds! This movie never was meant to appeal to the viewer's sophistication. On the other hand, it is not any sort of "chihuahua exploitation film", either.

My favourite hounds in this California-Mexico romp are Papí, Chloé's ardent male admirer and very determinedly valiant chihuahua, and Delgado, the down-on-his-luck, butch German shepherd who rescues, and does various acts of kindness for, Chloë, even when he misinterprets the reasons for Chloë's second disappearance. Then, too, who cannot love the thronging hoard of chihauhuas among the ruins of an ancient indigenous culture? Seeing Chloë try to find the mighty voice of her "inner chihuahua" (as opposed to pampered pet squeaks and whimpering) with the aid of the leader of this pack of chihuahuas is very amusing; I wish that this bit of animal humour had been more extended!

This is a pack of fun, and not just for children! Have a barking good time watching this film, in the theatre or at home on the DVD or Blu-Ray player!

Even with all the hype and not expecting a good film, Beverly Hills Chihuahua is wonderful, delightful and funny. I call it a modern day Lady and The Tramp. After reading one review on Amazon about how sad, implausible, etc..I wondered what the viewer really wanted and that maybe he/she had been damaged earlier in life by sweet, dog loving, sad but good ending movies.
It's a dog lovers movie and a very good kids movie with plenty of "life lessons".....just like all Disney dog movies. Hooray for Disney. How else would little children learn about dogs and love and life and loyalty. Animation (dogs talking) done very, very well. I'm 59 years old and I've not seen a sweeter movie in years.

I (a middle-aged woman) got talked into seeing this movie with a couple of friends and will admit I wasn't really looking forward to it. But as soon as the action moved to Mexico, I found myself totally caught up in the characters and the story. The animals were very well trained, the "talking" animation was great, the voice-overs were handled very well by the cast, and the story was involving, funny, and ultimately even moving. I'm completely happy that I gave this one a try!

"Beverly Hills Chihuahua" raises the bar on the cute quotient! I can't remember the last time I walked out of a movie theater grinning. I laughed through several parts of the film and the happy ending was just right.

I'm definitely getting this movie for my parents. They are an older couple who seldom go to movies because they cannot stomach the language and content of most films; so "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" is perfect for them. Although the movie was about a lost dog, it wasn't so sad or overly dramatic that I would be afraid to take a young child to see it. There are absolutely zero swear words, and the movie is just plain fun, whether you are 6 or 60.

I was waiting for this movie to come out because we own a Chihuahua but was wondering if it was going to be really good or really bad?
I loved it! It was funny, happy, good teaching lessons for my kids and it even had a little romance.
We are buying this DVD for sure. It needs to go in our Disney collection.
Take the time to watch it, it is worth it.
