ever since way back when, i was maybe 6 years old, i still remember when i first rented it from the video store. it took my little breathaway. whenever i went back to rent a movie, i begged my mom to let me rent it again, until she finally bought it for me.
this beautiful tale has so many layers, heart, and spirit, i can't begin to explain it. the first thing i should mention is, dont get fooled to thinking animals got hurt during the making of this, because they DIDNT. Masanori Hata takes VERY good care of his animals. he shot milo and otis on his own private island in Japan. the original movie was called the Adventures of Chatran, and it was longer. ( i've never seen it, i've been looking for years ) i hope someday i will see it. koneko monogatari ( milo and otis ) makes me cry at the beauty, sadness, and then joy finally. its a celebration of life. you can't dismiss it as a mere " kid's movie", it is for everyone. i detest the "adult" mindset, because it disables them from experiancing all forms of beauty. this is not a movie to me, it's a part of me, and it shares a special place in my heart.
i love milo and otis. - jeffro

I didn't know what to think before seeing this movie. The opinions were so disparate. Now that I've seen it, I find I agree with both camps. It is a delightful AND troubling film.

This is a simple but timeless story of adventure and friendship. Milo the mischievous kitten and Otis the pug puppy are best friends. Otis even pursues his friend when he's carried down the river after jumping into a wooden box. Soon, both of them are lost as well as separated from each other. The adventures they have with other animals are amazing, numerous and varied. They interact with a bear cub, raccoon, fox, seagulls, a turtle, a fawn and many others. The interactions will amaze you -- I couldn't believe a pug was riding on a turtle's back!

The footage is incredible, and does make one worry about the animals. While the director has said that the animals were raised together and are friends, and this is believable, it cannot account for the cat being attacked by seagulls and later falling from a very high cliff into the ocean. This troubles me.

Dudley Moore's narration is flawless. He captures every voice perfectly. Background music is gentle orchestral pieces. You will be amazed (and maybe a little troubled). Your children will definitely enjoy it, and adults will, too.

Milo and Otis is an absolutely adorable movie! I own a pug and let me tell you that Otis's mannerisms and the way he behaves is very true to the breed. Otis is very ornery and gets into so many things, just like pugs really do. I felt so bad and wanted to cry when he got stuck out in the snow towards the end of the movie. I am very glad that he made a friend in Milo and their travels together will warm the coldest of hearts. The end is a perfect end to their travels and now there is not just two of them anymore!

I'm not sure where the reviews are coming from that state the animals are abused. As for the pug and the bear...I own a pug as well and I'm currently reading a book by an author that interviewed the director of Milo & Otis for a Pug magazine. The bear & the pug were raised together, so they were best buddies.

I seriously feel bad for anyone who did not grow up watching the classic "Milo and Otis". It is holds such a strong memory in my childhood, one of those bittersweet classics that you never forget. Personally I love the music in it, but my wife doesn't. -she didn't grow up with it. Our twins love this movie because it has so many different animals in it. Watching it as an adult I can't help but to wonder how many animals were harmed in the making of this film? I think a fish is actually eaten in one scene; the other times are more minor but perhaps painful shots for the animals. In the end everyone is happy and well. Still I don't think a film like this would be allowed to be produced in the United States anymore. In fact I don't think it was filmed in the United States to begin with...

Anyway, if you don't have this movie in your children's collection buy it! There are no people in the film whatsoever which means no swearing, obscenity, and other elements that sneak into children's films today. You do see animals giving birth if that is a concern to you; my kids think the animals are "pooping". But that's life; it's all rather tastefully handled. Good family film.

My brother and I absolutely loved this movie when we were kids and my daughter loves it too. She was recently very sick, too sick to play or do much, and she spent all day on the couch. We watched this movie 4 or 5 times a day during that. It was the only thing that comforted her. A few weeks ago they took it off netflix so I had to buy it. I am not disappointed.

Sweet story about a cat and dog who are friends. They live on a farm and grow up together, then are separated while out exploring. They spend about a year searching for each other and finally find each other after having many life experiences, including having their own families. It's about love, adventure, friendship, and growing up.

Narrated throughout in a way by the same person, rather than different actors like Homeward Bound (a somewhat similar movie) which flows better in my opinion. Rich settings and landscapes.

The filming drew controversy over the filmmakers putting the animals in danger and just using animals for entertainment purposes. As a vegan I am a little bit worried about that but I try to get past it since I loved this movie as a child and it provided so much comfort to my sick child. She loves animals and watching them in this movie helped her stay calm to heal. I am not that familiar with the controversy but if you are a vegan you might feel it's important for you to check it out yourself, which is why I mention it here in my review.

Shows animals giving birth in a tasteful way but it's still a bit bloody and graphic. If you are not prepared for your child to see this (or if it freaks you out), maybe best not to watch this movie.
