Chihuahua Reigns at the Box Office

The Beverly Hills Chihuahua may not be bow- wowing the critics, but it’s stomping the competition this weekend at the box office. I suspect however harsh the critics are, the movie will still find a spot in the hearts of children and dog lovers.

The movie is about a Chihuahua named Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) from Beverly Hills (of course), who runs into trouble while she’s in Mexico.

I haven’t seen the film yet, but every time I see the movie trailer, I’m reminded of the talking Chihuahua on the Taco Bell commercial several years ago.

If you saw the movie feel free to sound off on whether it’s worth the watch. We may go see it next weekend.
