The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
After a wild chase in the bustling streets of London, the struggling computer game author, Roger, and his male Dalmatian pet, Pongo--by a welcome twist of fate--are dragged into St. James Park and meet with the charming fashion designer, Anita, and her female Dalmatian companion, Perdita. Soon, one thing will lead to another, and before they know it, Roger and Anita will get married and the adorable Perdita, pregnant. However, their short-lived joy is disrupted when Anita's glamorous but horrible boss, Cruella DeVil, dognaps the innocent puppies with the intention of making a luxurious coat with the dogs' fabulously spotted fur. Eventually, along with Perdita's 15 pups, Cruella will manage to bring the total to the staggering number of 99 Dalmatians; nevertheless, are the cute little puppies as helpless as they look?Written by
The Disney computer game "101 Dalmatians Animated Storybook", which takes the user through the story in interactive ways, has a mixture of story elements from both the animated and live-action "101 Dalmatians" movies. In the game, most details follow the animated version of the film. However, Roger and Anita have the same jobs as in the live film: Roger's a video game designer, and Anita works for Cruella as a clothing designer, which gave Cruella the nasty idea for a genuine Dalmatian coat. In the original animated film, Roger was a songwriter, and Anita's job was never mentioned. She did not work for Cruella, and knew her only as an old school mate. Also in the game, Roger and Anita meet in the park while taking their dogs for a walk. They end up colliding simultaneously in the pond, as they do in the animated film. However, they do so while on their bicycles, which was a detail exclusively from the live-action film. The game also shows only one dog rescuing the puppies from the De Vil manor. This is a detail similar to the live-action movie, while in the animated movie, a cat and dog banded together to save the puppies. See more »

1st watched 9/23/1998 - (Dir-Stephen Herek): Enjoyable live-action remake of Disney classic. Glenn Close has the best lines and does a tremendous part of Cruella Deville. This is definitely her movie from beginning to end with the dogs being there for the kids to enjoy.
