Trivia

Trailers for this movie received far more dislikes than likes on YouTube primarily due to the cats' awkward part-human, part-CGI appearances, and how seriously they were played off. One reviewer on entertainment site Nerdist News said they felt the teaser trailer was more terrifying than the trailer for It Chapter Two (2019), which was released around the same time. See more »

Goofs

Before the final showdown Macavity states to Old Deuteronimy that there are "no cats left" which he concludes makes him the jellicle choice. This is incorrect, since Rum-Tum-Tugger, who also sang a song, is never actually stolen away by him and is seen throughout the movie and even the scene before dancing with everyone else. See more »

Quotes

Bustopher Jones: Good evening, all.
Jennyanydots: Oh no. Look what the cat dragged in.
Bustopher Jones: You look absolutely starving. You can't attend the ball on an empty stomach.

The most entertaining part of this entire movie was reading these hilariously bad reviews. It was SO boring and hard to watch.
