In a small Massachusetts town, two bumbling criminals mistakenly kidnap a maid, thinking her to be the wife of a prominent businessman. D.C., short for Darn Cat, is an alley cat who, while looking for his nightly snack, stumbles upon the kidnap victim, bound and gagged in a shed. The kidnap victim scratches a plea for help on the back of her wristwatch and puts it around the cat's neck. Patti finds the watch and links it to the missing maid. Playing amateur detective, she enlists the aid of an FBI agent, Zeke, who has been assigned to the case. Patti and Zeke follow D.C. through tight openings to track down the captive. Written by
Dean Jones acted in both "That Darn Cat" movies. In 1965's original, That Darn Cat! (1965) he had the top leading actor's role as FBI agent, Zeke Kelso. In the remake, That Darn Cat (1997) his acting was very short with character role, Mister Flint. See more »
The position of the two ropes keeping Patti tied up appear to change dramatically between shots. When Patti is first seen tied up the ropes appear to tightly intersect each other. The ropes seem to suddenly be inches apart vertically when Zeke shows up seconds later, only to go back to their original tight intersection when there is a close up of Patti right before she gets free.

Even with Christina Ricci in the title role, this could have been much better
The main reason why I wanted to see this movie remake was because of Christina Ricci who I loved in Casper and the two Addams Family movies. While she was decent in the title role, although her character is pretty bratty and unlikeable, the cat is cute and Doug E.Doug brings a touch of class to Zeke, the whole film could have been much better. Other than Ricci and Jones, the remainder of the cast are unexceptional and that for me was a disappointment as I like Michael McKean, he is very talented, as was Peter Boyle. The cinematography and scenery from decent to adequate, but the real problems were in the story and the script. The story is very predictable, and there are parts where it drags very badly. The script is also very weak, lacking in a lot of areas, and I did feel the music was not that great either. The length is just right, but with such pedestrian pacing it feels twice as long sometimes. Also there is nothing new from the original, which was very entertaining otherwise unexceptional. Overall, watchable but disappointing. 4/10 Bethany Cox
