it has to be one of me favourite movies of all time, it is just a film well worth watching.

Yes, "All Dogs" has plot holes; Charlie can't talk to horses but can talk to alligators, the bad guy is allowed to enter heaven and the story is overall confusing.

King Gator (Ken Page) was a little obnoxious, but very entertaining.

The story itself is a little cliché in that it's about a 'guy' who was on the rough side of town and ends up getting a second chance to make up for his ways.

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE: The actual portrayal of heaven: The way Charlie reacted to it, "no surprises whatsoever", made it actually seem very boring.

All Dogs Go to Heaven is very sad and i couldnt bare to watch it very often when i was said little girl but when i did it was always entertaining moving and lovely if all the films ever made were to be whittled down to a hundred to be placed in a time capsule (stick with me) to represent human existance this should be one of them!!

This movie has been overlooked so much, it saddens me every time I see an empty review about it that fusses over tiny elements.

Set in a dreary junkyard of New Orleans, the movie starts out when Charlie B.

All Dogs Go To Heaven is a heart warming, entertaining, and funny film for the whole family.

An entertaining film .

However the biggest flaw was the rather bland songs and the way they were sung.

The effects, all hand-drawn, must have been extremely tedious to work on, what with sparks, explosions, powerful electrical charges, nightmarish visions of Hell reminiscent of "Fantasia"'s Chernabog character.

Second, the voices are great and this is probably Dom DeLuise at his most entertaining voice.

Not the greatest animation ever made, but well worth watching.

Very funny and entertaining, a little scary too .

Although none of those two films had the dark adult appeal of NIMH, they still are very charming, enjoyable features for both children and grown-ups.

Still, it's worth watching.

Overall, it's a decent flick for older kids who wouldn't mind having to sit through a bunch of boring scenes to get to the good parts.

When Charlie to find himself in bored in heaven, he steals a magic life-watch and rewind it, so that he can relive his life, from the point of his murder.

His movies became bland and forgettable.

Uneven, marginally entertaining .

His dream about going to Hell was really intense.

It may not be his greatest movie due to a little confusing narrative, but it is really worth watching, both for you and your kids.

You just have to admire the intense plot which builds suspension all the way, and the ending is quite breathtaking.

She also prays to God, thanking Him for Charlie and Itchy, which is a bit confusing since the Heaven we see in this movie appears to be nondenominational.

Four: There is a strange excitement in this film that keeps me on the edge of my seat.

A Very Enjoyable Film .

The dog angel was probably the most entertaining character in the film and I really did want to see more of that world.

I enjoyed it then, and I still do now.

The only problem I have with this film is that some part's of the movie can be boring.

The story is riveting and complex, but in what i think is an engaging and compelling way.

The scene where Charlie dreams of going to hell are really intense.

The second act is actually really boring to me.

Although not like "The Secret of NIMH," it is still breathtaking, beautifully drawn and moves smoothly.
