Oliver & Company is Dickens with a twist, and Disney with a treat. Full Review

Rating: C- -- I was entertained. The music is great. However, sections drag and there are too many bland characters. Full Review

The cartoon action will delight young children, while older ones, who usually reject animation as "kid stuff," will enjoy the rock songs and hip characters, especially the brash Tito. Full Review

With its captivating characters, sprightly songs and zap-happy animation, Oliver & Company adds up to a tip-top frolic. Full Review

The animation is fairly unexciting though serviceable, and the overall mystification of class difference would probably have made Dickens shudder, but kids should find this tolerable enough. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Though a little lacking in Disney's customary charm, still provides fine family entertainment. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- [T]he first animated feature from the new Disney studio regime, which is promising one such picture each year. Their first effort, measured against the Disney legacy of classics, is not up to the highest standard. Full Review

Product Description:

Disney brings Charles Dickens' tale of orphaned pickpockets in the streets of London to the screen with a colorful cast of canine characters. Oliver (voiced by Joey Lawrence) is an orphaned kitten lost in Manhattan until he meets up with the Dodger, a crafty dog with a gang that leads Oliver on a series of colorful adventures. Featuring songs by Billy Joel and Bette Midler.

Plot Synopsis:

This animated Disney film, loosely based on Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist," revolves around a cute orphaned kitten named Oliver, who is given shelter by a streetwise gang of dogs. A human beggar named Fagin does his best to provide for these homeless (and tuneful) animals.
But Fagin has a problem: he owes the wicked loan shark Sykes a lot of dough, and has only three days in which to cough it up. Oliver and the pooches take it upon themselves to help Fagin out of the doghouse.
Meanwhile, Oliver is adopted by a lonely (and rich) girl named Jenny -- who Sykes later kidnaps. Can Oliver and his canine cohorts find a way to save both Fagin and Jenny'
