As an impressionable youth I learned from this movie that fur coats should be frowned upon, but I also picked up smoking slim cigarettes with a long holder so I think it's a bit of a wash.

Definitely a good pro-wrestling style family movie. Evil but competent villain, dangerous but bumbling stooges "bumping" round, adorable puppies as the Babyfaces. So many nice "spots" (heh) and close calls. It's funny when the baddies get hurt - as it should be. Big families are good. Single people in their 40s (?) have something wrong with them and shouldn't be trusted. Good wins in the end. Short n sweet. Solid.

Cruella de Ville is the kind of villain that has a real impact on you when you're a kid, but when you grow up you realize how absurd the idea of someone being so relentlessly malicious really is. One Hundred and One Dalmations does have a pretty good story, but once you get past a certain age you just can't watch it as a serious movie anymore.

This Disney flick is packed with way too much "Awww, aren't these dogs cute?" filler and obvious evil goon bumbling. As a certified dog hater, I had little to no interest in the protagonists. I wanted Cruella to skin those bitches and make herself a new hat or something.

A very good Disney film. It's a bit too cutesy for adults, perhaps, but it'll definitely be exciting the first time you watch it anyway. The dogs are impossible not to root for, the villain is unequivocally villainous and the story is, while weirdly paced and pretty cliched even for Disney's standards, engaging. Great voice acting and lovely animation. Very charming.

101 Dalmatians is a thoroughly enjoyable Disney classic that still remarkably re-introduces itself and entertains new generations. Of all the Disney films that have animals as the central characters, this is definitely one of the most effective and enjoyable. And the infamous Cruella de Vil is one of the scariest and most memorable Disney villains. 101 Dalmatians may not entertain the whole family like the very best Disney films do time and time again, but children will certainly love this.

A coat made out of Dalmatian fur. Really? Wouldn't the rare white Bengal tiger make for a better coat and a plot that made more sense than to make a coat out of dogs? Even if people could get around the fact that your coat looks and smells like a dog, why do you have to use these Dalmatians? It's not like Dalmatians are so rare or hard to breed that you can't have a Dalmatian mill on your property. ugh.

One of my favorites in the Disney canon, differentiated by being smaller and less extravagant. I absolutely love the way it looks. The title sequence is artful. The rough lines and sketchy backgrounds are full of character. It's jazzy. And all those pups are so cute!

A bright spot in the Disney canon that introduced the use of the Xerox machine in the hand-drawn animation biz, eliminating the need for cel inking. "Dalmations" also contains some nice social satire, seding up 1960's TV with a sweet viciousness not often seen in Walt's ouevure.

The beginning is rich with a fun, jazzy European 60's style to it, but the majority of the movie moves at a breakneck pace and for a kids movie it gets a little overwhelming and ultimately unfulfilling. Sure, it's well done and Cruella is a great villain, but overall 101 Dalmatians isn't anything above merely good by Disney standards. This isn't the worst of its kind but its far from the best.

The 60's 101 Dalmatians is a typical self-proclaimed Disney classic. I watched it quite a few times when I was little, but after a second viewing it's definately more suitable for the kids than adults who may find the action a little excessively sweet. Although certain elements are flawed, it's just another enjoyable animation from Disney and you can't help but like it. The poor remake may have dented its reputation somewhat, but this original adaptaion of the book is far more charming.

I'm told I used to watch this so much when I was little, my mother bought a second videotape for fear I'd wear out the one we had. Since then I had forgotten almost everything about the film until I popped it back in recently. What a crazy feel of nostalgia and joy reliving this wonderful film. The story is casual, but at the same time makes you worry about all those puppies. Also, I can appreciate the animation now that I'm older. It's probably the most visually interesting Disney film.

The characters are so wonderfully established, the danger appropriate and the dialogue outstanding. It's no small wonder Disney's animation team continued to use the film as the gold standard for years afterward. Only marred by that weird, antiquated Disney subtext.

The drawing is a little meager compared to the finest work of the Disney animators; also is afflicted with a bad case of the cutes. But the storyline picks up conspicuously when it moves beyond a couple of frightfully bourgeois dalmatians and introduces several different breeds of dog, as well as a lionhearted cat. The transition between the stodgy first half and the lively second is marked by a magical journey through the London night lights and into the tranquil English countryside

For some reason, "101 Dalmations" always slips my mind. And it's not because it's forgettable. I think it's just because it's in a very different style from other Disney movies. It's not magical in any way and really only has one song (well, two if you count the "Canine Crunchies" commercial song). Cruella de Vil is definitely an underrated Disney villain. She's so delightfully maniacal. This is a winner.

This was one of my favorites as a kid. The songs are still good, but this would mark the beginning of a deterioration of quality animation one used to expect of Disney. And it's just a bit too cutesy/childish for its own good. I'm kind of depressed now.

The script is sharp and the plot's tight, if not particularly original fare for animated movies. In the end, though, you'll have fallen in love with the precocious puppies, and you'll love to hate the inimitable Cruella de Vil.

as far as disney movies go, it's pretty average. i'll admit i was a bit on the edge of my seat when the puppies were trying to get away. but i'm not the biggest fan of "animal movies" in general and just couldn't get too into how the dogs were way smarter than the people. cruella was also a bit simple as a villain; she just screamed around, and in the end did nothing. it's a good film for sure, but i can't say one of my favourites.

As a kid this was one of my least favorite Disneys, but rewatching it now as an adult it rose immensely in my appreciation. Firstly Cruella De Vil is great monstrous villain. The dogs have human characteristic, but still also act like dogs with typical dog mannerisms. I also loved the cat sergeant and the dog colonel. It is still quite suspenseful. It's nicely animated with a nice early 20th century English setting.

The intro scene with its charming hand-drawn animation and warm voice-over narration that turns out to be the dog and not the man is a great beginning, and sets the tone for what is an overwhelmingly cozy and satisfying film. The entire cast of characters-from the manically evil Cruella De Vil to the absent-minded pipe-puffing Roger, and all the animals and henchman in between-are all wonderfully memorable, and the exciting storyline sets it apart from other similarly endowed Disney classics.

(2014-15 Disneython #11:) Not an ultra-classic to me personally, but very charming and nostalgic. Cruella De Vil, while ultimately just really pathetically obsessed with killing some dogs, has an iconic look and intro song. The climactic stealth mission gets a little old but has some tense bits. Thin but likable protagonists. I really like the film's cool early-1900s British atmosphere and even the rough animation, which oozes character. And props to Disney for avoiding the evil cat cliche!

Walt Disney (the man himself) wanted to reach and entertain the inner kids of adult viewers. This film doesn't always do that, though it may make actual children laugh and squee for dogs some times. Plot reminded me of Home Alone movies at times, which is not a compliment, though this is lightyears better than them.
