with the efforts achievedby an experimental behavioral scientist.
|If you recall, 101 Dalmatians was based on the most hideous
villain, Cruella De Vil. This terror of a woman (beautifully played by
Glenn Close) was sentenced to a penitentiary for dog napping with intention
of hurting 100 beautiful Dalmatian puppies in order to achieve an elegantly
spotted fur coat. As our sequel opens, Cruella has been rehabilitated
No longer does our wicked villain want to be known as anything other
than Ella, a friend to all animals. She still remains under a parole officers
care (in which was played by Alice Evans), Cloe. It just so happens, that
Cloe owns a family of Dalmatians and one of them happens to be a grown
pup from the first movie. Cruella decides that the furs she has obtained
must be removed from her sight and as a way to make good with all animals,
she financially supports the Second Chance dog shelter.
Will Cruella De Vil's true nature resurface? Let me just say...you will
have to see it to find out. My children and I loved this sequel as much
as we loved 101 Dalmatians. It brought laughter to us as well as a loving
cute twist of relationships.
