When Patience returns Midnight, Ophelia tells her that, "She's an Egyptian Mau, the rarest of breeds." The Mau is, in fact, somewhat rare, but there are other breeds (Selkirk Rex, Korat, Somali and Havana Brown, for instance) that are far less common. Cat Fancy Magazine lists eleven US catteries specializing in Maus. The breed was introduced to the US in the 1950s, not 1940 as mentioned in the film, although its lineage dates back well over 2,000 years - a spotted Mau like cat is clearly seen in hieroglyphs, and there is the belief it is the cross between a domestic and wild cat about 3,000 years ago.

I'm tempted to write a long piece explaining why this film was so bad, but I can all too easily summarise by saying "Everything".
It was poorly acted, predictable, unenthralling, clichéd nonsense. And that was just the first half hour, at which point, for the sake of my brain and stopping it melting with the sheer tedium, I walked out of the cinema.
If you're genuinely sad enough to believe that paying good money to see Halle Berry in a PVC suit is good enough reason to spend time gawking at this trash, then fine. Who am I to try to persuade you to try and do something more valuable with your time, like base-jumping without a parachute?
