101 Dalmatians (1996)

101dalmatians1996_003Disney updated its classic animated tale with this live-action version starring a deliciously over-the-top Glenn Close (pictured at right) as infamous villain Cruella De Vil, the rich bitch who wants to turn loads of cuddly little dalmatian puppies into a fur coat.

Jeff Daniels and Joely Richardson (as the couple trying to stop her) are slightly more subdued, but still turn in entertaining performances.
