Format: DVD
Amazon throwing reviews for same titled products, which exist in two very differnt formats, often creates problems and we certainly have one here.
There are two US releases of the widescreen version 101 Dalmations: One from December 20o0 and one from the Fall of 2008.

The 2000 version is letterboxed wide screen. the 2008 (the one you definitely want if you have a widescreen TV) is anamorphic wide screen.

If you have a widescreen TV and you get the 2000 DVD (asn: 1558908374) the picture will be terrible compared to the much better 2008 edition (asn: B001B1T7BU)

Now I am not talking about SD (standard definition) vs Blu Ray (HD), or widescreen vs 4:3, but about what happens to a 2:35 (ultra widescreen) film like this when letter boxed as the 2000 version does. this means that half the data of the film is thrown a way. The resolution of the 2000 dvd is very very low quality compared to the same aspect ratio on the 2008 dvd.

Disney remade their classic animated film of the same name 35 years after the original, as a live-action movie in 1996. The tale is familiar to most: two Dalmatians, Pongo & Perdy, bring their owners together. Roger (Jeff Daniels) and Anita (Joely Richardson) fall in love almost at first site when they meet in the park. They get married and their Dalmatians have puppies. Sounds like a lovely romantic tale, right? It would be if it weren't for Anita's boss, the evil Cruella de Vil (Glenn Close). Cruella is a fashionista who loves fur...and her latest desire is to own a coat made of Dalmatian fur. When she learns that Anita's dog has had a litter of 15, she sets her sites on them to make her desire come true. Anita & Roger turn down her offer, so she sends her bumbling minions Jasper & Horace (Hugh Laurie & Mark Williams respectively) to steal them for her.

Does it equal the original? No, not really...but this is not a surprise. How could you top Marc Davis' animation of Cruella, one of the most memorable characters in animation history? Still, you have to give Glenn Close much credit for making Cruella her own...remove her and you have little reason to watch this film. With her fright wig and amazingly over the top costumes, Close truly comes close...she is an evil delight to watch as she barks orders (pun intended) and does everything in her power to make the fur coat a reality. Laurie (now starring in the hit series "House") and Williams are excellent as her bumbling henchman. The animals are also lots of fun to watch, as they often show that they are much smarter than their human counterparts.

Note to parents: this movie is somewhat darker than the animated versions, with a few creepy scenes with the taxidermist.

This DVD plays only in Europe and neither myself or anyone else I know here in the USA could get this to play here!
Had to return it to Great Britain which cost me almost the cost of the DVD. My fault, I realize, because I didn't read the description carefully enough. Just a "heads up!"

I choose this rating because the movie is good. What I like about the movie is that it is unleashing every ounce of Disney magic, 101 Dalmatians thrilled audiences of all ages with fast-paced adventure and comedy featuring a brilliant performance by five-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil. Achieving new heights of hilarity, Disney's all-time classic puppy tale came to life as a worldwide box office sensation. In their small London flat, Dalmatians Pongo and Perdy, and their human “pets” Roger and Anita, are overjoyed by the arrival of 15 puppies. But when the spotted-fur-loving Ms. De Vil and her clumsy cohorts, Jasper and Horace, dognap the litter along with every other Dalmatian pup in London Pongo and Perdy must rally the town's animals to their rescue.

Now you can bring home Disney's live-action comedy hit, praised by critics as nothing short of “phenomenal!” (CBS-TV) What I dislike about the movie is that I wanted to see more of it. I would recommend this movie to other people.

Apparently it can't be played on DVD. It can be played on your computer only a limited amount of times if you change the region from 1 to 2 in the united states. When I complained to seller I was told that was in the small print. Not worth the aggravation to deal with these people.

Watch what you are buying! I purchased this thinking I live in the US, I am purchasing form the Amazon US site ( as opposed to the sites for UK or any other country/ continent only to receive and find out in the fine print that it stated it was a region2 DVD (which means that it cannot be played on American DVD players).
