VIDEO: Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008)

We’re sorry...

This video is no longer available due to the shutdown of Blip.tv.

Just in time for the highly anticipated DVD release of Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3, Renegado reviews the original Beverly Hills Chihuahua, where a chihuahua named Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) gets dog-napped in Mexico, and it’s up to her love interest Papi (George Lopez) and her owner Rachel (Piper Perabo) to save her. Basically, it’s a film about talking dogs that somehow attracted a decent cast, including Jamie Lee Curtis, Cheech Marin, and Edward James Olmos, even though none of them can do much to save this movie.

    Actually, they do have dog-fighting…in America.

    Though, I would have bet on her.  I used to own a chihuahua and she would routinely fight (and beat) dogs several times her size.  After all, chihuahuas are bred to kill rats, and rats can throw down!

       We also had a problem in my country with dogs being illegally breed for dog-fighting and then be sold to other nations.

      So yeah… it’s a thing, and it’s global, and it’s an absolutely terrible thing.

        My friend adopted one of these dogs before they were able to put it in any fights, and it had been mistreated to make it mean, then had its teeth sharpened to make it more lethal. It’s still really afraid of baseball bats, actually.

        If it’s true that dogfighting is less common in Mexico then I say, you know, estupendo, because seriously screw the people who do it.

    • Yeah, I’m not lumping on Renegado, but I thought the horrible practice of dog fighting was well documented, at least after the whole Michael Vick thing.

      • In america, maybe, I don’t recall anything over here, then again I live far in the south where everything is generally more pacific.

          I honestly thought you emigrated from Mexico to the US with how good your English is.  It is impressive that you have good English while still living in Mexico since I’m sure you don’t speak English every day (much like Sofie).

    Haven’t you seen Amores Perros?  I figured they had dog-fighting down there too.  (Or the Michael Vick scandal, if you’re up here.)

    I was hoping to see a few veins in your forehead burst over this movie.  I wasn’t disappointed.

    • I haven’t actually, been meaning to do so, just want to see the entire Iñarritu trilogy together. Glad you weren’t dissapointed xD

    I don’t know that much about Mexico, but I always thought Chihuahua (the city) was in northern Mexico and the Aztecs were in central Mexico.  I also wonder why no one bothers to make movies about Olmecs and Toltecs, as both were pretty big civilizations historically.

    • TheCrazyFish

      I actually thought the Aztecs were in Brazil for some reason. I blame my high school history teacher.

      • Yeaaaaaaaaaaah too far xD

        • TheCrazyFish

           Well, at least I know better now. ^^;;

    • Muthsarah

      The Olmecs and Toltecs are far less known than the Aztecs, which were still around when Europeans arrived, and so could be documented by them.  The Olmecs are older than the Romans, and very little of their culture remains, so it’d be hard to tell a story about them without filling in a lot of blanks yourself.

      I think it’s amazing Mel Gibson got Apocalypto made.  Sometimes crazy works.

      • I’d pay to see an action movie about the Olmecs. Or maybe something sci fi?

    • Yup, that’s actually right, the Aztecs weren’t in Chihuahua, in fact there lived mostly nomads….and the chichimecas if I recall well

  • TheCrazyFish

    Dog fighting IS a thing, though not really a Mexican thing.

    • TheCrazyFish

       Also, I still don’t get why they kidnapped a chihuahua for dog fights. I mean, yes, I know that as they say it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog and while chihuahuas might be small they’re also scrappy and vicious.

      Still, even with all of that, who looks at a yipping purse dog and thinks “yes, that’s what I want to send up against all those highly trained and bloodthirsty pitbulls, dobermans, german shepherds, bloodhounds, hybrid wolves, and bulldogs: an untrained, tiny, yapping freaking rat dog!”

      • Maybe they did it for amusement, either way it’s just wrong.

    “Well, that was easy.  Wait, if that was me from the past and I-”

    LOL!  Oh, God, I almost couldn’t get to the rest of the review, I was laughing so hard! 

    • Hahahaha good thing I somehow returned to normal XD

  • Thomas Stockel

    Sweet fuck, they mad two sequels to this?

    Good review, FR.  Thank you for making it so I never, every have to sit through this shit.

    • Kids today!

      You sound surprised by this. :p
      Good review as well.

  • I think that the dog should be eating dog food instead of what is just available. The dog food will help the dog be nourished.
