A strangely unfunny message about the importance of investing in the wider economy
29 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Sylvester inherits £3million dollars from his deceased owner, word quickly goes round the old neighbourhood bringing all his old alley cat friends out of the woodwork. However Sylvester's financial advisor, Elmer Fudd, is adamant that Sylvester not squander it and instead invest it for the future.

I started watching this and confused it with `Hare Conditioned' which is slightly better than this. The film starts out with a reasonable promise but it does nothing with it. The film spends much of the second half playing a film about the importance of investment to the American economy. None of this section is funny at all and it's use as a punchline is a suitably poor finish to a poor cartoon.

Sylvester and Fudd are both good characters - but not here they aren't. The support cast of alley cats have a touch of attitude but only as support - they really did need the two leads to step up, but neither does. It never really gets any good at all and it manages to be nothing memorable that, even minutes after it has finished, I am struggling to really remember it.

Overall, this is a very poor film that seems to be more about promoting responsible finance than it is about delivering laughs. A pointless little short that barely raises a smile.
