Set in 1939 New Orleans, ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN tells the story of Charlie (Burt Reynolds), a likable but mangy dog who escapes from the dog pound and teams up with his old buddy, Carface Malone (Vic Tayback). But when Carface double-crosses him, Charlie ends up at the pearly gates, where he is told that he will be allowed in when a record of his good deeds is found. Thus returned to earth, Charlie becomes the protector of a little girl (Judith Barsi) as he plots to take revenge against his murderers. Expertly animated by Don Bluth's studio, this tale deals with complex themes better suited to older children, making the film an interesting and rewarding viewing experience.
