Had a lovely time forcing my friends to endure this nightmarish purgatory on opening night. Absolutely whimsical experience, I will cherish their screams of terror forever.

I gave it 5 stars because the cast, and dancing was great! I saw Cats on Broadway when I was a child, i am 32 now so it was nice taking my mom to see it in the theater. Broadway will always be better!

I loved the singing & dancing & their costumes. It was cute that their ears & tails moved. Very realistic & I loved how they captured the essence & personality of their roll as a cat. Especially since I am a cat lover I thought that was important.

do yourself a favor and skip this movie, it was just plain awful, even the actors said it sucked, and if you look at the cats feet you will see the worst cgi ever where they failed to bring the ground up high enough to touch the characters limbs, most of the dances the actors are floating about 1-3inches off the ground which was very annoying

This movie was one weird movie. The plot was very vague and made no sense. Great music but not worth the money

I don’t know what to say about what I just saw - very different kind of movie. Jennifer Hudson was amazing and the dancing was great - the CG was distracting tho

Talented ensemble at their best. Makes me wish I had seen the live performance. I would have likes to see a trailer after the movie that identified who played each role could only identify about five actors.

The studio obviously never heard of test screenings. It needed a few more months in the editing room. Lots of it did not work.

Worst movie I have seen! People Walked out of theater during first 1/2 hour. The only good thing about this movie was Jennifer Hudson’s performance and the costumes. Could they not see how bad it was while filming????

Not my favorite. Good effects but it was very slow and felt more like slugging through it than enjoying a real world distraction.

You have to go into this movie knowing it’s going to be weird. Uncanny is a great description. They are human but also cats..... the music was great. Especially knowing that those songs were originally from 1983.

I just cannot add my name to the CATS haters. The movie is not purrfect but it does have a great cast, clever costumes and the story of redemption and love for society's cast outs is still heartwarming. These are cats, not humans. If you joined the haters, go see it for yourself... and fall in love again.

l LOVED it! I've never seen it anywhere else before. I thought it was purrfect, the cat's meow. I laughed and cried. Jennifer's song had me in tears. I can't tell you how it stood up to Broadway nor the book as I've never see it nor read it. IMHO I felt it was well done and wonderfully cast. and want to see it again.

Miss Hudson gave us chills with her finale! James Corden never disappoints. Unfortunately, even with the magic of CG, I was pulled out of the story often wondering how a musical with repetitive one-liners riddled throughout could win so many awards. if you're not a musical theater enthusiasts, you probably won't like it.

I loved the Broadway Show. I even did this show in elementary school. Was shocked beyond belief how it did measure up to my standards.

given the caliber of cast, I expected something..anything. this film is a total flop. possibly ruined some of the actors careers. I would prefer to read president Trumps tweets than to ever endure this film again

some of the songs I couldn't even understand the words. I soo focused on trying to understand the song, I couldn't really enjoy it.

It’s 80-year-old Ian McKellen who can best answer that last question, having the most fun of anyone as Gus the Theater Cat, lapping out of saucers and rubbing up against corners like the true thespian he is. And really, for all its flaws, what more could you possibly ask for from Cats?

Badly cast, broadly directed, and hampered by a book that hasn’t aged well since the musical’s 1981 West End debut, it’s hard to imagine just who this film’s target audience is.

It's almost unfathomable that this one made it through all the preliminary production meetings without someone sensibly calling a halt to the process by saying, Wait a minute, those kitties are damn creepy!
