One could say this film was for the birds
21 August 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This picture left me longing for a nice, hot bowl of Special Kitty. Not a bad little movie, but probably more geared for the young set. The animals were sooooo cute, and just sooooo smart as they went about solving a murder that even the police were having a problem with. The one big thing that kept this from being an Academy Award winner, in my humble opinion, was sexy Tom Jones singing "What's New Pussycat". I can just hear ol' Tom's robust platinum throated vocal chords warbling and moaning out those treasured lyrics...."what's new pussycat, woa woa woa woa...what's new pussycat, woa woa woa woa wooooooaaaaaaa."
