Out, damned spot! The 1961 animated classic, updated as a live-action feature, miraculously keeps most of the thrills and comedy intact. Daniels and Richardson are the hapless London couple at the mercy of evil fashion designer Cruella De Vil (Close), who steals puppies to make a fur coat (and steals the show in process, vamping through each scene on four-inch heels).
The animals don't talk this time out, and most of the humans can't quite pick up the slack, but the combo of cute puppies and Close is enough.
