A clash of the animal civilizations Cats & Dogs: Only one can survive

Scientist Professor Brody has developed a potentially life-changing chemical, one that can permanently cure human being�s allergic reaction to dogs. This is much to the chagrin of the world�s cats, specifically evil feline architect, Mr. Tinkles, who is intent on stealing the formula and modifying it to induce widespread dog allergies.

Scientist Professor Brody has developed a potentially life-changing chemical, one that can permanently cure human being�s allergic reaction to dogs. This is much to the chagrin of the world�s cats, specifically evil feline architect, Mr. Tinkles, who is intent on stealing the formula and modifying it to induce widespread dog allergies.

This places the Brodys� dog, Lou, in a unique position as the concoction�s closest protector. Unbeknownst to their human caretakers, these cats and dogs have established elaborate, technologically advanced weapons and accompanying headquarters. Each side�s respective troops are trained to fight; some are even proficient ninjas.

Throughout the film audiences are exposed to a highly complex cat and dog underworld, where interspecies tensions flare and fighting is rampant.

However, one might wonder why a simple anti-allergen upsets the cats so much, especially since it poses no real threat to their existence. Although Brody�s formula becomes the war�s focal point, it was initiated by the perceivably unfair capture of Buddy, a neighborhood bloodhound.

In response, angry canines began mobilizing against their whiskered rivals, determined to end their worldly influence. This causes Mr. Twinkles to assemble his own troops and a full-fledged war begins.

The picture was a resounding success in theaters across the globe, earning over $200 million at box offices. A sequel entitled �The Revenge of Kitty Galore� is currently in the works, and scheduled for a summer 2010 release.

�Cats & Dogs� is rated PG for animal action and humor.
