Not great, but the boxing set-up is funny
25 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A tough New Yorker cat is tired of chasing mice on the docks and looks for another way. He spies Sylvester going through bins in the yard and takes him on as his manager (in agreement that Sylvester will get 20% of any mice caught). However Sylvester mistakes a crated kangaroo in the warehouse for a mouse and finds it very difficult to catch him.

The plot here is a basic one which involves Sylvester getting seven shades kicked out of him by a kangaroo who he mistakes for a rather bulky mouse. In between these bouts, Sylvester is coached by a tough New York alley cat who acts as a sort of boxing manager to him. Although the kangaroo stuff is amusing but it is the tough alley cat stuff that is funnier. None of it really got belly laughs out of me but the majority of it is funny enough to get by.

The kangaroo is pretty poor; animation wise he is very basic but also as a character he is just an orange/brown blob to be honest. Sylvester is not as ruthless as he can be, but he is amusing enough here - this personae works well here simply because he is supported by the tough talking New Yorker alley cat that acts as a typical tough boxing trainer.

Overall, this isn't a great film but it is generally pretty amusing even if it isn't that smart. It has enough little character touches to make it enjoyable even if the material had definite room for improvement.
