I do admit that Lady and the Tramp was not my cup of tea. I love animals and have a special soft spot for dogs. But the animation did not do it for me. On the other hand, Lady and the Tramp Live-Action Remake is just the right amount of sugar for my tea!!! I love the movie. Hopefully you will too. This Lady and the Tramp Movie Review will explain why I love it so much.
Spaghetti, Meatballs, Rescue Dogs and Family: New and Old Make Better
There are many small differences between the animation and the live-action. Subtle ones that do not steer the movie away from all the values it touches on. Yes, the meatballs and spaghetti scene is there. But beyond that, there is much more. To begin with, consider the stars Monty and Rosie who play the Tramp and Lady. They are rescue dogs!!!! That in itself is simply a beautiful tale that needs to be told! Guess what? All the dogs in the movie are rescue dogs. They all found homes including a lucky little one that went home with Yvette Nicole Brown who plays Darling’s aunt Sarah.

Lady and the Tramp Parental Guide
Long overdue, it is time for a whole new generation to get to know the Disney Classic Lady and the Tramp. We were all missing out on a beautiful story perfectly executed by our magical Disney friends. Lucky for us, the wait is over and Lady and the Tramp Live-Action movie is now streaming on Disney Plus. The movie is rated G and I will not go through my usual list of language, gestures, and violence because there really is none to report. I will point out a few intense moments that you need to look out for if you have sensitive little ones. Like the dog pound, dangerous- like moments on the streets or references to dogs being put down. Also, there is a slightly sensuous song, but nothing really to look out for.
Howl Your Heart Out: Lady and the Tramp Movie Review
Before long, you will be joining Lady and the Tramp to Howl Your Heart Out at the moon. As a blog that aims at finding things that will keep us stress-free, I am all over the chance of howling your heart out to the moon. Letting it all out and ahhhhh taking it all in. The Disney Plus remake live-action movie will not only warm your heart but get you wanting to do something good. It is uplifting and beautiful at the same time. On a visual note, the way Savannah plays as the backdrop and setting for the movie is perfection.
Let’s All Get Along: an incredible cast sets the example.
To top the city, diversity is alive and kicking in this movie and not just in the different breeds of dogs! It all just flows so easily. The best thing for me is that it definitely is not done in an “in your face” kind of way. It works really well. Which reminds me, the chemistry in this movie among all cast members is amazing. So much so, that even the dogs have great chemistry! No, I am not just saying in because of the movie itself. Yes, the animals play their roles extremely well. But, I did have the pleasure of meeting the dogs in real life and they are soooo sweet to each other!
Things of Worth
Besides diversity (I didn’t mention that Jim Dear and Darling are an interracial couple) The biggest value that is underlined is family. But so much more is touched upon. Loyalty, friendship, freedom, perspective, and perception just to name a few. Discovery of the world around us and self-discovery are great little conversation starters from the movie. As well as, making the right choices. Get your kids talking!
You Will Watch Over and Over Again
From my Lady and the Tramp Live Action Movie Review, you can see that I was pulled into the story hard and fast. Despite knowing what to expect, I discovered Lady and the Tramp all over again and truly enjoyed everything about it. It is charming, and the adaptation is the perfect nod to the classic. You will enjoy the love, adventure and even the strife between the dog catcher and the adorable animals. I think it also lends a hand to fostering the wonder we experience when we discover new things or places.
Be on the lookout for this heart-warming easter egg: the riverboat is named Monty Rosie, the actual names of the dog actors that play Lady and the Tramp.
