Out of the box
As a very young child, I grew up on the 1961 101 Dalmatians. I loved the show, and I remember thinking that it was one of Disney's best. So when the 1996 live-action remake came out, I had my doubts that anything could be as good as the original. I was wrong. This movie is absolutely fantastic! It is beautifully written and the dogs are so cute and loveable... but I think the thing that ties it all together is the casting. The characters were brought to life in a totally believeable way--from Jeff Daniels as the Dalmatian-loving, Cruella-hating Roger Dearly, to Ms.DeVil herself, played to perfection by the unbeatable Glenn Close. All of the actors fill the shoes of their characters, the comic timing is just right, and everything about it spells a Disney masterpiece.

Trivia

The Disney computer game "101 Dalmatians Animated Storybook", which takes the user through the story in interactive ways, has a mixture of story elements from both of the animated and live-action movies. In the game, most details follow the animated version of the movie. However, Roger and Anita have the same jobs as in the live-action movie: Roger's a video game designer, and Anita works for Cruella as a clothing designer, which gave Cruella the nasty idea for a genuine Dalmatian coat. In the animated movie, Roger was a songwriter, and Anita's job was never mentioned. She did not work for Cruella, and knew her only as an old schoolmate. Also in the game, Roger and Anita meet in the park while taking their dogs for a walk. They end up colliding simultaneously in the pond, as they did in the animated movie. However, they do so while on their bicycles, which was a detail exclusively from this movie. The game also shows only one dog rescuing the puppies from the DeVil manor. This is a detail similar to this movie, while in the animated movie, a cat and dog banded together to save the puppies.
