prepare to experience sheer weirdness
22 November 2015 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Whoa! I have seen some bizarre movies, but Roberto Rodríguez's adaptation of Charles Perrault's story is in a class all by itself! "El gato con botas" comes across as one giant acid trip. Exaggerated acting, sped-up scenes, and occasional singing make this one of the weirdest movies out there. While watching it I made a few comments like the characters on "Mystery Science Theater 3000" make; Mike and the 'bots would've had a field day with this movie.

I assume that the characters are supposed to represent the detachment between the social classes in Mexico - the royals and aristocracy are white while the peasants are swarthy - but seriously, the whole movie comes across as a joke. Nevertheless, they probably had fun filming it, and you'll probably enjoy making MST3K-style cracks at it. The challenge will be finding a copy.
