OLIVER AND COMPANY (George Scribner, 1988) ***
Curiously endearing Disney animated feature inspired by “Oliver Twist”, transposing the Dickensian favorite fairly successfully to a modern-day New York setting – with the villainous Bill Sykes as a mobster (flanked by a couple of vicious mastiffs). Stylistically, it lies somewhere between LADY AND THE TRAMP (1955) and the adult-oriented films of Ralph Bakshi (without the sex and violence, naturally); as such, it stands oddly alongside the studio’s usual fare from this rather lame era – and its vitality can now be seen to have foreshadowed the renaissance in quality (and critical appraisal) which they witnessed soon after, beginning with THE LITTLE MERMAID (1989). The anthropomorphic characters (which generally swamp the humans – Fagin is very much a good guy here, if still pitiful) are quite nicely fitted to class stereotypes: hence, we get a Hispanic chihauha (with an eye for the ladies) and a posh bulldog, among others, while Dodger is basically an updated version of Tramp and Oliver himself a cute but very brave kitten. The familiar and involved plot is all but jettisoned (especially in its second half) in favor of boisterous action and character comedy, with a bouncy score and rapid pace to match. In the end, it proved surprisingly good – and, at just 74 minutes, short enough not to overstay its welcome.
A childhood classic
I just read the previous comment about this being a bad movie and that kind of indirectly hurt my feelings. It’s just a nice little movie Disney made for pure entertainment and yes, it is directed toward children. It wasn’t intended to be catered toward an adult audience. I also can’t see how people can criticize such a nice little movie by picking on the animation and Disney’s “incapabilities.” Disney is awesome and can do whatever they want in a feature. Maybe they wanted to portray it the way they did. Besides, the focus of the movie is the story. And based on that, it’s a touching tale. This will always be one of my favorite childhood movies and no criticism from other drippy movie reviewers will ever make me see it any differently.
