102 — SPOTS BEFORE MY EYES — DALMATIONS

It's all black and white, with no shades of gray in "102 Dalmations," the inevitable sequel to the "101." Is 102 dalmations is 101 too many? Let us see.
Glenn close is at it again as Cruella De Vil, recently released from prison for her dastardly deeds in the previous movie, and quite elegantly got up, too, according to informed sources.
This time around, the sets and music are said to be more lavish than ever. However, they cannot control De Vil's natural evil ways. Though under the eye of her probation officer Chloe (Alice Evans), De Vil aids a failing dog shelter run by Kevin Shepherd (Ioan Gruffudd), and guess what? Shepherd is arrested for the theft of dalmations. Then Chloe loses her own dalmation pups. Poor De Vil is under suspicion once again.
She has been silly enough to take up with Pierre Le Pelt (Gerard Depardieu, yup the real one) a fashion designer known for his flair with fur. Not a good move here for Cruella.
As Cruella waltzes through the movie with her black and white wig and crazed hauteur, one critic finds a startling resemblance to her role as Norma Desmond in "Sunset Blvd."
The live action doggies are filmed in Paris. With the famed streets of the City of Light filled with numerous black and white cuddly critters, and what the production notes call "a riotous frenzy of hilarious slapstick and hearwarming fantasy – a humorous tale of animal rights and identity conflict," it, quite frankly, makes you wonder who writes the production notes. Retired ad execs comes to mind.
No matter what the streets of Paris are filled with, it must be worth the price of admission. It is directed by Kevin Lima, and rated G.
It is playing at Market Square East.
