Works on every level. It's funny. It's sweet. And the animation -- especially as Marc Anthony watches the cookies being baked -- is nothing short of brilliant.
Even the MUSIC is fantastic: My favorite segment is when the Mom (Voice: Bea Benadaret) is standing there w/her arms crossed and her foot keeping a rather annoyed andante tempo. And MA goes through all the prior ruses to convince her that he's not harboring a cat. And the score goes through the prior incarnations as well, including the "Oh You Beautiful Doll" when he tries to pass her off as a powderpuff.
