Fighting For The Right To Relax
19 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom and Jerry "ham" it up in this one, fighting for the right to take a snooze in the nice hammock outside.

Tom is all set for a catnap when he hears Jerry already on the hammock snoring away. He gets rid of the mouse, but that's the start of trouble. You know who gets the worst of this battle. Tom gets sliced and diced, let's just put it that way.

I didn't find any laugh-out-loud sight gags but it kept my interest and I did enjoy each character dealing with a parade of ants. That probably was the the most innovative joke in here. You wonder: does Tom ever win any of these "battles?"
