“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 (2011)

If your kids were into the racist stereotypes of the original, they get more here, but without any of that annoying talent to get in the way. George Lopez returned, but no one else did and the director of this seems to have made a career of straight-to-video sequels of children's films. The two main dogs of the first film get married and have pups; there's a mortgage to pay so the dogs enter a dog show (where one plays the piano) and there's a bank robbery and... there's a lot of costume changes and bad attempts at humor. Really, there's no point in describing this beyond "it's dogs in costumes" and, if that's enough for you, there's something called the internet that's full of it.
