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.

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

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

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

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.

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

The rotten tomatoes say it all! It had so much potential for it to be Broadway like but could not even keep Activision CGI correct! Bravo J Hud belting out Memories!

It's literally just the musical made into a movie. If you know what you're getting yourself into, you won't be disappointed.

I typically do not leave comments and I understand to each their own but this was one of the worst film I've wasted money on by far. I can' t even say I wish o could unsee it because I started reading a book about 15 minutes into the film. Would have left but had to stick around waiting for family.

I love all things Broadway and cat related things but that was the worst movie I’ve ever seen. Such a great cast but such a poor performance. Do not recommend.

Not sure why this is one of the longest running musicals ever. Judy Dench, Did you not have ANY other options? Jennifer Hudson was good, though, so two stars for that.

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!
