You learned last week how to ensure your furred companion becomes a star. Now let's acknowledge some pets that have attained this vaulting goal - and the great cinematic artworks that showcased them.
You must have seen Mila and Ollie in Twins. It was hilarious.
Bethan and Bronwyn were Fast and Furious, respectively.
He Knows You're Alone had a few plot wrinkles but nobody does suspense like Hoss Man.
Searching for Sugar Man had a disappointing ending. (Lucy)
U-Turn came with a shocking twist. (Kila)
Centerfold caused a stir. (Allie)
We laughed, sometimes, at The Three Amigos. (Digby, Otis, and Alo)
The Big Easy was a sleeper hit. (Fred)
Izzy was Oscar-bait in Drive...
...and her ensemble work with Lace and Kobi was acclaimed in Let the Right One Out.
Winter's Bone was grim... (Lance)
... and many found Mouse Hunt a little slow-moving. (Lance again)
A few critics thought The Bone Collector was miscast. (Jack)
But Lani was perfect in Sliders. The co-starring bean bag received good notices too.
Lilly Button had a meaty role in Boxing Helena...
..and even more so in Magnificent Obsession.
Everyone loves thrillers. There was Wait Until Dark... (Lulu)
... and the subtle Don't Look Now. (Opal)
What started out as Match Point was more appropriately retitled Crash. (Phoenix)
There was the chilling He's Right Behind You. (Toby)
Poppet was perfecly cast in Nuts.
Clash of the Titans. (Tyson and Jett)
The X-Hens franchise has been lucrative.
The Paper Chase had a predictable ending. (Solo)
We winced at the violence of My Sole to Take. (Stacie)
There was an all-cat version of Titanic...
... but the canine version trumped it, with Shelby, CC and Cherry sharing the title role.
Murray and Chica moved us in My Bodyguard...
... but nearly brought us to tears in Presumed Innocent. What commitment!
