I had the chance to review the New Diamond Edition of The Lady and The Tramp that will be available on Tuesday, 2/7 (in both DVD & BluRay Edition) and I was happy to do so not only because I was able to watch a classic with my children but also because it had been years (I won’t say how many) since I had seen it. Obviously the movie is the same (although it does have bonus features) but the quality really is incredible with its high definition sound.
There are 2 scenes that I immediately remembered from when I watched it as a child, I am sure you’ll know what I am taking about if you have already seen it. The first one was the siamese cats (and that song I can now not get out of my head) and the second was when they share spaghetti and well you know what happens….LOL.
If you are not familiar with Lady & The Tramp, it is a classic love story unfolds in the best Disney tradition as a lovely young pedigreed cocker spaniel named Lady, who lives a pampered life, finds herself falling romantically for Tramp, an amorous street-smart pooch without prospects. Although they have fun together on several dates, including a sentimental spaghetti dinner by moonlight at Tony’s restaurant, their relationship is strained not only by Lady’s loyalty to her human family and their newborn baby, but by Tramp’s devil-may-care attitude that eventually gets Lady in trouble and tossed into the dog pound. However, good-hearted Tramp redeems himself by saving the baby from potential harm and thus wins Lady’s love and the affection of her human family.
I love how these re-releases allow you to enjoy and share these classics with our children….
