101忠狗（One Hundred and One Dalmatians）是迪士尼第17部經典動畫長片，原於1961年1月25日在美國上映，被認為是父母最樂意推薦給小朋友觀賞的電影之一。
101 Dalmatians **101斑點狗
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from Lockport, NY, United States (101 斑點狗)
This was the first animated Disney feature film done by a single storyman. Bill Peet not only did all of the story boards but he also wrote the script and designed the characters. The author of 101 Dalmatians, Dodie Smith, complimented him on his treatment and thought he had improved on the story. In the credits, Bill Peet's name, his signature, is animated. A unique and unprecedented honor. He received a second credit for character design. Bill Peet also did all of the story boards and character design for The Sword and the Stone, and was the only storyman working on Jungle Book, when he retired.
"I liked to tease the hxxl out of him (Walt), though; I couldn't resist it. I remember on Dalmatians, I'd worked out the board when these puppies are all watching television, this Rin Tin Tin-type thing, and they're all cheering and reacting to the thing. After I tell the board, Walt says 'When kids are watching television, they don't react at all, they freeze. You know, I was over to my daughter Dianne's house last weekend, and my grandson was watching television, and I walked in and he didn't even look at me.' I said, 'Well maybe he didn't know who you were.' There was this silence, with a giggle or two. It was tough on the guys, because they had to stifle their laughter. No, he didn't like that one damned bit."
This is one of those movies that truly is - and I don't mean to use the cliché - entertaining whether you are a kid or an adult. The dalmatians and other animals are a lot of fun to watch.
Glenn Close must have had a lot of fun making this film, playing the evil "Cruela De Vil." Just as much fun, maybe more, were the two bumbling dog-nappers - Hugh Laurie and Mark Williams, I believe - idiots who were genuinely funny in their stupidity. Their dialog was hilarious.
There are nice colors in here, too, so a widescreen DVD is good to have if you enjoy this movie. I didn't find the surround sound to be much.
Speaking of clichés and such, there are some drawbacks here that were a little annoying to me, like overdoing the intelligence of the dogs, making them almost human-like with their abilities to understand English. In fact, it's taken to the absurd level level of some of the animals being smarter than humans. Please....give me a break! Also, you get the quick "film romance" in which two people (Jeff Daniels and Joely Richardson) barely meet and already they are in love, getting married in no time. Please....give me a break!
Still, recommended if you want a want 103 minutes of a "cute" story and don't take any of it the least bit seriously as if anything in here could really happen
