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

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

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

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.

I loved this movie! Creative costumes with moving cat ears, tails etc and beautiful depictions of fur, spots, colorations and skin. Fabulous dance moves with some cast from the Royal Opera. Singing was also very good but Jennifer Hudson a huge disappointment! Can't that girl enunciate! If I did not know the words to Memory, I would have missed half of them! Yes, I saw the original musical and already was a fan but to make a movie is so very challenging because of all the closeups and constant movement, etc. Go see this if not for your love of cats to maybe your love of great dance, costumes/makeup, sets,,, I just DO NOT UNDERSTAND ALL THE BAD REVIEWS! This was an Andrew Lloyd Weber musical originally and before that a book!

Disappointing, it started pretty good but as it continued its disappointing performance by few actress and actor roles . first the cameras were all over the place shooting from one angle to next with shaking motion. I also think that certain customs could have been better to show off variety of cats. not just short hair types. Memory is one of my favorite song but I hated how it was sung.

After reading a spectrum of reviews, I’m happy that I decided to go and see ‘Cats.’ You have to LOVE musicals, and lucky for me, I do!

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.

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.

Sooooooooo slow and boring I literally fell asleep and I am a lifelong CATS fan...it was really disappointing because we went for our Christmas movie and it was extremely underwhelming. It doesn’t translate well from stage to screen for me.

this is by far the worst movie I've ever seen. I was drawn in by the trailer to go and watch the but I must say, I was totally duped! Too much singing and not enough talking. I felt like I was at a music and dance concert. way too much for the movie theater

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!
