The eccentrically macabre family moves to a bland suburb where Wednesday Addams' friendship with the daughter of a hostile and conformist local reality show host exacerbates conflict between the families.
Chloë Grace Moretz
Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies, and dark new forces at play.
The lyrics to the classic song "He's A Tramp" were altered. In the original film, the song describes him as a "ladies man" and a great romancer who loves 'em and leaves 'em. In the new lyrics, the song is more about him being a loner. See more »
When Lady and Tramp were on the river boat you can see the boat is traveling a lot faster than the the paddle can propel the boat, the boat is obviously driven by a propeller and the paddle is only there as a prop. See more »

Lady and the Tramp is a remake of the classic animated film and is one of the first original films to air on Disney+. For the past several years Disney has been cranking out these remakes to much success, but with many wondering why these films are remade in the first place. Lady and Tramp's release on Disney+ may prove to be a new home for these remake films, though we might have to see what the future holds.
The Lady and the Tramp live action remake is for the most part just fine. It is a beautiful looking film and manages to look high budget but also looking like a mix between a TV film and a theatrical release. It is also very fun film. It retreads familiar territory and doesn't add much new, but it's still a fun time of you want to use up 2hrs and watch this. The cast is very good and play their roles well especially Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux.
However, being so familiar maybe to the film's detriment as well as its Tv-esque quality, but it seems that might have been the point. The CGI with the dogs can be awkward at times with the way their mouths move as well as their CGI enhanced eyes, but it still is able to remain cute.
Overall, Lady and Tramp is perfectly fine, if not a little disposable. It doesn't add much in the way of new and doesn't boast anything that makes it a worth while watch, but it you want to take a few hours out of your day to watch it. It couldn't hurt.
