Storyline

A cat belonging to a poor miller's son thinks up a great plan for bringing a title, wealth, and marriage for his owner. He begins to carry it out, using a few birds and rabbits as gifts for the king, his own wit, and a pair of boots that make him appear human when he puts them on. However, his owner has no idea that the cat has told everyone that his master is a marquis rather than a miller's son until the king has arrived to meet him. Soon the king's daughter and the miller's son fall in love, and the king wants very much to see the land and the castle belonging to this rich "marquis." Written by Pav

Christopher Walken singing and dancing!?!?
6 January 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Now don't get me wrong, I loved this movie as a child. I remember even being impressed by the songs "You're looking at a happy cat", and "Go to sleep, my friend", both sung by Christopher Walken. I was even impressed by the singing. I know a LOT better know as an adult, but I still watch the movie. It's terrifying yet wonderul to watch if you're a child, and it's a true classic!
