Not even an exceedingly cute beagle in a roll-neck pullover and spectacles can rescue this charmless live-action and 3D animated kids' caper. The boffin beagle is a spy, in charge of bringing down Kitty Galore (voiced by Bette Midler, giving it some welly), a bald Siamese with Blofeld-style villainous designs on world domination. Weirdly, the pooch agents on her tail seem to be on a different script completely, reeling off witless global terror jargon (there's an iffy, out-of-place joke about waterboarding when a German shepherd interrogates a cat). Still, plenty to keep kids diverted, like dogs on rocket propellers and cats in bow ties. Which is infinitely more entertaining than the barrage of duff winks and nods chucked out for the grown-ups, the lamest of them a parody of Hannibal Lecter in his muzzle – here a fluffy white Persian called Mr Tinkles. A three-minute Road Runner cartoon as a support act outclasses the main attraction by miles.
