Trivia

There originally was a subplot involving catnip as an allegorical analogue for addiction, but it was cut for time and because executives believed it would be too much for a PG-rated children's movie. See more »

Goofs

When the cat opens the pen ink is spilled over a picture of Tom Brand with George W Bush. However in a following shot the picture is visible in the background with no ink. See more »

its not as bad as people say
9 August 2016 | by mnemon07See all my reviews

I've read some awful reviews about this movie and my expectations were set low. I was expecting to be dragged by my kids to a mix of "Baby Geniuses 2" and "Battlefield Earth". But I was pleasantly surprised. This movie won't win any Oscars, but its a reasonable kids movie. Kids liked it, and I was OK with it. Yes, the plot is predictable, and the jokes are pretty flat, but they are geared toward 10 year olds and adults who really like cats, and that is what is expected from a kids movie about a cat. If you hate cats, well, don't see it, see "Shaggy Dog" instead, its virtually the same plot, except its a different type of a pet. I think this movie is OK and I look forward to seeing new incarnations of the same plot in the future movies, such as "Being Goldie" (hint, hint movie studio, in about 10 years we will be ready for another one of those plots)
