“Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite!” Review by Suzanne 9/10/20
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.
This is a fun family movie. I enjoyed watching it. It has a lot of humor and action. I didn’t see the first two movies, but it didn’t matter at all.
This is a live action movie, not a cartoon. The human drama involves two single-parent families who live in an apartment building. One family is a mother and her teen boy. He’s a tennis phenom, and she’s a bit of a stage mother. He owns the dog named Roger (voiced by Max Greenfield). The other family is a musician and his teen daughter. She owns a cat, Gwen (voiced by Melissa Rauch). The cat and dog are secretly members of a worldwide organization that makes sure that cats and dogs stay out of trouble.
A criminal mastermind causes cats and dogs to start fighting again, despite a decades-long truce. It’s up to Roger, Gwen and their friends to figure out who’s doing it and stop them. There are some other animals in this one, including a parrot (George Lopez), an alligator, a frog, a spider, snakes and more. It’s a very enjoyable movie.
There is a “behind the scenes” feature on the DVD, a short “deep animal thoughts” feature and a gag reel that really isn’t a gag reel. I was very glad to see that the closed-captioning is available in the extras as well as the movie itself. That isn’t always the case with DVD’s.
You should rent or buy this DVD if you love animals or have children or grandkids.

About Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite!
It’s been 10 years since the creation of the Great Truce, an elaborate joint-species surveillance system designed and monitored by cats and dogs to keep the peace when conflicts arise. But when a tech-savvy villain hacks into wireless networks to use frequencies only heard by cats and dogs, he manipulates them into conflict, and the worldwide battle between cats and dogs is BACK ON. Now, a team of inexperienced and untested agents will have to use their old-school animal instincts to restore order and peace between cats and dogs everywhere!
