Audio-wise, Cats & Dogs boasts a DTS-HD Master Audio lossless 5.1 track that seems to focus more on the front speakers than anything. On the plus side, though, it makes it easier to sleep through. The 25GB Blu-ray disc also contains DD 5.1 soundtracks in French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Portuguese — further exemplifying my theory that it’s the work of the Devil, and that its one and only goal is to turn people to the Dark Side. Several thousand subtitle options include English SDH, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German SDH, Italian SDH, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish. Hail Satan, yo.
On the bonus materials side of the Satanic spectrum, Cats & Dogs features the exact same shit that the old Standard DVD contained: an audio commentary with select cast and crew, several behind-the-scenes borefests (in SD), a sketch gallery, and a few storyboard comparisons. The only new item here plays at the beginning of the disc, and is a trailer for the new Cats & Dogs sequel (?), Cats & Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore. Um, exactly why did producers feel the need to give such a forgettable film a follow-up? Oh, Hell if I know (ha, ha)!
Truth is, there really is no other explanation for Cats & Dogs being released to Blu-ray except to cash in on the upcoming theatrical sequel. Initial releases of this title even come with a free movie ticket for the unwanted theatrical continuation — in which case you will only concur with me that Hell is a place called Hollywood.
God help us all.
