Bad reviews for the Cats movie are too harsh and underpinned by a dislike of cats? — 4 Comments

  1. So we did see it. I saw no trailers. Read no reviews until after seeing it. The film suffered from the musical-to-film disappointment. I will say this…when I saw the play I was a recent cat owner and was very taken by all the cat mannerisms the actors portrayed. I’m willing to say that maybe I missed them in the film but I was sad to not pick up on them right away. The one review I read later was from the NYTimes and it was pretty spot on. Whatever anyone who doesn’t love cats said, I hate to say I wouldn’t give this version of Cats many stars.

      • The only real up close cat thing was when someone said crossed paws :-). I wish they could pull the version and reissue it with more cat-related mannerisms. Unfortunately it was totally a case of missed opportunities: Jennifer Hudson for some reason was held back in her singing of “Memories” which could have made the film, in part, I think. Gus the theater cat was therefore the cameo portrayal.
