Rebel Wilson's song caused me anguish: I was terrified to fall asleep upon our return home.

I enjoyed it and don't feel a bit guilty about it to boot.

I'm not entirely sure, but perhaps there was just too much dancing which didn't move the story on, which can make it drag, but I have to say when the intensity of the dancing backed off and the story and drama picked up, it was quite superb and I came out of the cinema having thoroughly enjoyed it.

The dancing was great and to us was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

It loses two points because the execution of singing was lackluster and the Grizabella casting was horrible (not because she's forget racists but because she was way too young and uninteresting for that regal role).

Some bits were quite entertaining especially the Mungo Jerry and Rumpleteazer, and Bustopher Jones scenes.

Very funny and entertaining movie .

Dull, boring, pointless.

But oh my GOD was this a pointless movie.

Once you get past the first song (WARNING: they do say Jellicle Cats quite a bit), it's an enjoyable film.

Even as a fan of theatre I had to skip through some bits because it dragged on.

There was little plot, most of the songs sucked and I was bored.

I have to admit that I never watched the original play on theater, so I approached this movie having no idea what the original story is about, but in the end I could not understand the plot,because it is so confusing.

It is pointless, drab, silly, seemingly endless and is thus a perfect coda to "Cats".

After watching Cats, this deserves the rating that it got and it's rating is lower than the Worst Movie Ever: Plan 9 from outer space.

No plot, low budget, same songs sung over and over.

but I enjoyed it much more than I thought...

It was long and drawn out at the start and then amounted to nothing.

I understand the concept that they were going for and that the dancers were talented but everything else about this movie was horrible, the dry and repetitive jokes from Rebel Wilson and the near zero dialogue makes this movie painful to watch.

One of the most boring songs in all of musical theatre, "Moments of Happiness," is thankfully cut to about 30 seconds.

Lastly, I could mention that some of the camera shots were a bit static and boring...

Never have I seen something as bad , Don't waste money or time

Hudson's performance alone is worth watching.

Overall, I found Cats to be very entertaining thanks to the excellent acting, singing, choreography, and visual effects.

I for one think that the movie is a masterpiece, it's unique and entertaining.

They have constructed this lurid, garish world contrived of the choicest parts of both dreams and nightmares, woven with CGI, with people who are not people, non-humans who are all too human.

Waste of time.

But if I'm going to enjoy something like that, I want something entertaining or unbelievably bad.

Horrible CGI , terrible performances by actors , weak storyline , total waste of money and time.

Worst Movie Ever!!.

Really boring and scary looking.

Taken together, ultimately, it just looks ridiculous and the context for the emotional number is dubious and confusing so the number sticks out in a bad way.

I enjoyed it .

The first half somehow manages to be extremely disturbing, nightmarish and tedious all at once.

"Oscillating between a cat's immanent quadruped gait and its human player's biped posture, from the word go, CATS betrays the misalignment of its content's anthropomorphism and its cast's zoomorphism, which becomes perniciously distracting for audience to emphasize with the uncanny creatures on the screen, unlike in a live theater, where performers' spontaneity and virtuosity can keep viewers riveting and suspending any disbelief, here, this fancifully concocted, pre-recorded commodity with every feline impersonator slinking, leaping and dancing in perfect synchrony, belting out in perfect pitch, has a much harder time to win its fans of a different medium.

Just aweful, don't go and see it because 'it'll be historically bad', it's just boring .

It's so fascinating to learn about all the different ones- and much of it is quite funny.

The lead actress Francesca Hayward's ballet background shone through well and was very enjoyable to watch.

So much bad singing and terrible cgi also so boring

I throughly enjoyed it and am glad I ignored critics!

If you saw the play and enjoyed it or if you love good music and dancing disregard what people or the critics are saying and go see it!

Bad things were the slow pace and the doubling of all the musical numbers making it really tedious.

And I didn't think it was fair that many walked out after 30 mins or 1 hour and still felt within their rights to leave a review.

The main problem is that the format of the original musical does not upscale to the movie screen due to its lack of story.


It is not that bad, just a bit tedious .

As I say save your money let somebody else rent it when it's on dollar sale.

And to be honest, i had fun, i enjoyed it.

It's boring.

The musical numbers are boring and forgettable.

I watched this movie with my partner and we both quite enjoyed it.

Almost all of Tom Hooper's films are rated above a 7 on IMDb, but I've always found them dull and rote - while this one is a miss, at least he swung for the fences.

It was cringe worthy, annoying, boring & obviously the lamest and the dumbest movie ever made.

However, I was sufficiently entertained by the movie itself and the other items (noted above) are beneficial addons to make the movie even more enjoyable.

"Worst movie ever made"?

We all enjoyed it very much!

Making matters worse comes with the virtually non-existent plot, which sums up the earlier statement that not every material or medium can be translated into film, and this film proves it.

A horrible waste of money and time.

Beyond that, I'll forgive the hideous humanoid cat special effects, but with the story mixed into an already plotless musical, Cats was a complete mess.

However, there's no real plot, the villain is weak, and the ending is lame.

I personally thought it was enjoyable and fun.

I had the experience of renting a VHS copy of a filmed production of Cats decades ago, and found it pretty unwatchable.

I really enjoyed it.

I fell asleep for 10 min and they were still in the same scene singing the same song.

Highly enjoyable and well made .

It's hard to say, because the characters still wouldn't be more than one-dimensional, the story would still have been almost non-existent, and the backdrops and locations would have still been empty, eerie, and even almost post-apocalyptic with their static lack of life besides the sometimes tiny sometimes not so tiny (the scale is WACK) titular cats.

When someone tells you not to see a film, don't waste your time going!

But it came across slightly bland.

I dont care about Taylors bland pretty face with cat ears.

Worst movie I've ever seen .

The real problem is that there is no story here.

It made me emotional at one point, and I genuinely really enjoyed it.

I give this movie 10 stars because it's more funny and entertaining than I was expecting.

Also the way that multiple cats contribute to each character's song was very enjoyable.

Seriously don't waste your money on this atrocity of a movie, the money spent on two tickets to cats you could instead be used to get a month of the regal unlimited movie pass, where you get to watch as many movies as you like.

If not don't force yourself to, you'll want to leave and regret spending money on an overpriced theatre ticket.

There was some moments and musical items which dragged on and ruined the pacing of the movie to a degree.

I was bored.

Ian McKellan was wonderful in his spot, Jennifer Hudson better than anticipated, Rebel Wilson and James Corden really good choices letting their personalities come through, Steve McRae fascinating through his number, and Idris Elba a more involved Macavity than in the play.

Anyway, I'm already bored about talking about this complete and utter junk, I'm off now to watch the far superior "Howling VII: New Moon Rising".

I came to the cinema with my kids to watch it and even they said they wanted to leave.

Unwatchable, and this is coming from someone who liked Manos: The Hands Of Fate .

Then, I'd strongly recommend buying tickets for a session you know is going to be completely empty and going with some friends.

Boring and weird .

The film itself was largely devoid of storyline and frankly quite boring.

You can like, or don't like movie, but to put it in 100 worst movies ever made!?

Bad CGI but if you can bear it, the film is actually enjoyable .

A waste of time and money making it and seeing it.

The worst movie i have ever seen.

It's a couple of hours of lighthearted entertainment with some really entertaining music, a charismatic cast (many of whom you will recognize, let that be part of the fun), weirdly attractive cats, and nothing at all to take so damned seriously.

I really enjoyed it and will happily watch it again.

Its just confusing.

Surprisingly enjoyable .

A Tedious Bore Just About Everyone Walked Out .

I just really enjoyed it!

During one song, I started off a little disappointed, but by the end of the song, enjoyed it very much.

And then, well, as far as I could see, there was no plot.

Disjointed, dull and just generally horrific I felt like it would never end.

If I could rate minus stars I would, absolutely shocking movie such a shame total let down walked out after 20mins !

I found that as long as I just evaluated it on its own and not in comparison to the original, I could find it enjoyable.

I left the theater halfway through even though I had already see enough in the first five minutes.

Kinda boring.

" The rest of the songs sounded bland and boring because they restricted the vocal talents of the singers who can actual sing.

Sure, it might have the jazziest plots or the most creative settings and camera angels, BUT if you're someone who understands and appreciates musical theatre, then this movie will be enjoyable for you.

The entire production team, along with many actors, should be nominated for every award possible for their work in developing poor source material into an entertaining and visually stunning film.

This movie is the biggest waste of time and money.

The camera angles constantly change, thereby creating a feeling of confusion with the viewer.

So I enjoyed it, as did my other family members, one of whom is a Broadway "Cats" fan and the other was her daughter who knew almost nothing about Cats.

But no story came, just dance and song after dance and song.

Waste of Money and Talent .

Reviewers who said it had no story or plot, wrong.


Cats is based upon a Broadway musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber which has no plot, and never intended to have one.

And not just that, but honestly worth watching.

This movie was in fact so boring I almost fell asleep during the movie at the comforts of my own home.

I went to watch this film with my 11 year old daughter who really enjoyed it and gave it 8 out of 10 stars.

Comic gold but just dragged ever so slightly.

No storyline!

The Worst movie ever made.

It's very funny and entertaining.

As for the former, he gives a deeply grating performance, with a lame "comic relief" sketch and a totally flat musical number, while Wilson was basically just acting out on a feline version of her usual shtick in the worst ways possible, and lacks the ripe singing voice to make it interesting, and as for the latter, Swift simply acts out in a pretentious manner and comes off as utterly distracting, not to mentioned that she gives a horrible British accent.

It was exuberant, connective, entertaining and good-natured.

There's no real plot and making the cats still look human is kind of disturbing to say the least.

Boring .

I left after 15 minutes of it, that's how much I hated it.

Disappointing And Confusing .

Such an insanely weird, why-would-you-do-this fever dream of a movie with no plot, sense, or logic.

I quite enjoyed it .

Don't waste your money at the cinema.

Worst Movie I"ve Ever Seen .

Let me tell you this, above all - this movie is BORING!

I go to the movies to be entertained, and I was, so yeah, I enjoyed it.

I was nearly fell asleep.

Everything about Cats just makes it completely bizarre, unwatchable, grotesque, disgusting and unappealing.

This was weird and boring!

This is definitely the worst movie I've seen in a very very long time.

This is a waste of time.

I watched it yesterday online with very low expectations and I was surprised to find it entertaining, witty and quite emotional.

Wonderful original songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber and a stunning song co written with Taylor Swift.

My friend and I both really enjoyed it!

The musical sequences is boring.

Daft comments about lack of plot (it's simple enough) and scary appearances are hard to fathom.

The plot was complicated and hard to follow.

No plot, bad acting, awful music...

As a musical, some of the songs like "Rum Tum Tugger", "Bustopher Jones" and "Jellicle Songs for Jellecle Cats" are entertaining.

It's entertaining!

This movie is a waste of time .

I fell asleep after 30 minutes and woke up just in time for the escape scene on the boat.

Wouldn't waste your time or money on it.

Worst movie I have ever seen .

If people cannot handle lyrics/poetic language, slow stories where the focus lies more on character and to draw them, then on action and obvious plaine story lines...

Were they bored by the dancing scenes without songs?

They left after 20 minutes.

The Emoji Movie, while obviously a big waste of time, at least had some funny moments and decent voice acting, for the most part.

Story hard to follow.

Have just been to an afternoon screening and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Third, some of the songs within this movie that were adapted from the stage musical (with the exception of "Memory") were utterly dated, repetitive, obnoxious and strange, with the rest of its musical numbers turned out to be cringeworthy and abysmal, and while some of these songs were celebrated in its prime; nowadays, most of these songs have entered into self-parody.

The television ads for the first run were fascinating, as were television performances promoting it.

Worst movie ever in my 32 years of existence.

In particular the harmonies of Old Deuteronomy were a joyous thing to listen to, a stark comparison to the musical version which I considered downright boring.

To make matters worse, many of the songs are poorly written and are far too repetitive.

She's the same all the time and I'm bored of her now.

Bluntly put, the movie was dreadfull and a waste of time.

Look, I have to admit that I haven't even seen this movie, nor will I (I actually walked out of the stage show.

don't waste your money!

A nightmarish, abominable, unwatchable and disastrous musical film adaptation that brings the musical genre into a total disgrace and travesty .

Luckily I fell asleep.

This is the worst movie of all time.

Worst Movie of All Time .

No, but definitely enjoyable.

" So it has *no plot.

Waste of time, I mean a jelico waste of jelico time .

Although they could've done better with the hands and noses, everything else was stunning.

No plot,no development, no suspense and bad singers-worst dancers!

One assumes that they learned how to defecate in boxes, lick themselves, randomly fall asleep and break everything important to everyone.

The play is a interminably ponderous, oh so precious, pretentious piece of dross that somehow was elevated to high art making it unfilm able.

I enjoyed it and even found myself singing along.

This was a waste of time.

It was actually enjoyable, if you accept it for what it is .

Overall a fine DVD of a superb movie of perhaps the most entertaining stage musical of all.

The story is just confusing and all over the place, don't waste your time.

Worst movie I've ever seen.

There is no plot to be seen, and I can't believe the cast list signed up to this film because they didn't make it anymore watchable.

The story was so bad that we had to google the actual plot as it was so mindnumingly confusing to sit through.

After reading so many bad reviews on this film I was actually quite pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

A unique and entertaining musical .

Quite Enjoyable .

I've seen worse (I'd still say worst of the year Holmes and Watson has it beat) and this movie didn't inspire anger when I watched it, mainly just boredom.

In the moment, I was kinda bored.

I had read all of the bad reviews so was expecting a terrible experience, however to my surprise I actually quite enjoyed it.

The compares well, and was an enjoyable watch, with sufficient suspension of disbelief.

A total waste of money and Judi Dench' time!

I quite enjoyed it.

It's a wonderful and enjoyable experience.

Film difficult to follow & downright boring.

Other than that, the film really captures the musical, and I LOVED that they added in Victorias storyline, since it gave the film a bit more structure than the original show (the show can be a bit confusing).

really cute & entertaining!

This is 1 hour and 40 minutes of pure enjoyment engaging with a world that could be just as easily a parallel world to ours rather than a fantasy.

If you go see this in theatres with an open mind and a fun crowd (and some booze) prepare for a very entertaining movie.

I forgot movies could be this dull.

I close my eyes because I hope I can fall asleep to spare myself.

It's incredible to believe that if we were to hold a 'WORST MOVIES OF THE 2010's AWARDS', the movie that came out at the very last minute would probably win.

Mind blowing spectacular .

A couple if roles could have been cast better, there were a few places where I wasnt quite sure what was going on, but overall, I really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed it s as md would go see it again.

the new emoji movie the old sonic animation the worst movie of the century

" Still, it had some nice moments (that lasted maybe a few seconds apiece) and some intriguing ideas (that lasted even shorter time).

One of the most boring movies I have ever seen.

I ignored the overwhelmingly bad reviews and found it weird and very enjoyable.

The stage show is up-lifting and this was beyond dreary it was so tough to stick it out to the end when it was finished I just felt so relieved it was over, a feeling echoed by my mum and sister.

A boring musical theatre experience has been turned into a laughable movie.

I read the negative user reviews with confusion and then decided perhaps it is a generational thing.

But "Cats" is an artless, plotless, pointless show, with one half decent song and lots of hideous synthesizers that betrays its 80's inception.

As a family we enjoyed it & the kids are still listening to the soundtrack

One of the the boring film with worst CGF.

These are probably the same people who climb on the bandwagon and say they hate the word "moist", or in the past booed at the premier of "The rites of Spring" in 1913, or walked out of 2001 Space Odyssey in 1968 saying "I dont get it" after the critics first panned itPlease give this movie a chance-it is very good and full of brilliance at times.

I mildly enjoyed the scenes because I'm a fan of the original musical, but a non-fan is probably going to be bored and confused.

I seen a lot of movies, good ones and bad ones, but this is not just bad, its unwatchable.

Worst movie iv ever seen the neutring joke was ok they GPT THE RUM TUM TUGGER WRONG worst movie iv ever seen even where the wild things are is better

But Cats takes the cake for the worst movie of all time.

Boring .

It was boring, didn't tell a good story, it was just a bunch of Cats introducing themselves.

I found the cast performances riveting, the story engaging, and the music delightful.

Also, creepy CGI and a bland performance from the lead.

Slow songs went on for far too long (or so it felt) and I honestly struggled to stay awake.

"No plot".

It is just one musica sequence after another and gets very boring fast.

I don't see the problem with this movie, and I thought it was charming and really enjoyable.

And that role is played by Ian McKellen, making this his new career nadir - and that dude was in a bunch of boring movies where shrunken furry-footed men walked and walked and are still walking, somewhere still in the shire.

I don't want to knock it like everyone else, since the cats do look cool and a lot of work went into it, but the movie is just extraordinarily dull.

Claim there is no plot (which suggests they haven't seen the stage adaption) or D.

Definitely worth watching.

Pretty enjoyable.

There's no plot, characters and explanations on how their world works; especially when we see "only one" human throw away Victoria.

I on the other hand enjoyed it very much I had read a little of the bollocking this movie is receiving and also a review yesterday from a friend who also knows the musical stage and film genre so I was so pleasantly surprised to be in the minority camp of people who praise this innovative reworking of a stage musical .

I can't describe in words what I witnessed, but all i can tell you is that I left the theater a happy guy.

Worst movie I have ever seen .

However, power through that weirdness and you get to the second half which is really enjoyable.

Waste of Time & Money .

This was completely boring the entire time and is only interesting in its appalling imagery.

MUSIC was spectacular and exciting.

There is no story, no conflict, no characterisation, no character arcs.

I finally got what the whole cat in bag thing was all about thanks to the movie and it was nice having a tangible backstory which helped in understanding Victoria and her introduction the cats as well Grizabella etc.Overall this was an enjoyable movie for anyone who doesn't take life too seriously, likes a bit of humour and nostalgia and has seen cats the stage musical.

I thoroughly enjoyed it .

this movie a waste of time, money, talent; everything.

The DVD's (as there were two) that I used to watch are now so scratched from how frequently I would want to see Cats that the second disc is basically unwatchable past 10 minutes.

Please don't waste your money.

The film has hardly any lines, it's just boring song after boring song.

I thought the casting was great, the music and dancing was engaging, and the film had fun and heart.

But in the end, Cats is considered as one of the worst movie adaptations of a hit musical to be adapted, and probably the very worst ever attempted at this price point and scale.

If you want to know what the worst movie ever really is, it is called The Apple, and it came out in 1980.

My husband gave up after ten minutes but me and my daughter enjoyed it.

It is such a confusing, trippy, fundamentally wrong train-wreck on just about every level, but it's oddly compelling and if you're in the right frame of mind, a lot of fun.

When it finally did, I walked out of the cinema in a daze, I was ready to dump my entire movie collection into the garbage and to never watch another movie again, I was angry, I was sad, but mostly I just felt empty.

Breathtaking and sparkling fun and dazzling and also magical.

But I went into this expecting a terrible movie, and just got a boring one.

The other movie that I saw a while ago that had a low rating was Plan 9 from outer space which is officially the worst movie of all time according to Rotten Tomatoes and other sites like this.

To state an unpopular opinion, I quite enjoyed it.

A waste of an hour of my life haha

Don't waste your money .

lets talk about this thing and waste even more of my time with writing this and yours by riding it,but since i wasted part of my life by watching it lets go,cats is one of biggest failures of entire year and that means in every single way possible,lets admit it what can we espect from a film that doesnt have plot,and entire cgi and visual effects are really hard and disturbing to look at,hell i felt sorry for actors like dench and mckellen to be in this but it was their decision they choose for whatever reason probably money,cats is proof that stage musicals dont work in films and it is wasting everyone time and patience with its existance

worst movie i've ever watched .

Judi Dench's casting is also pretty bizarre, Old Deuteronomy usually played by a man, fair enough if she had an amazing voice but seems pretty pointless otherwise.

Normally when I fall asleep during a movie I'm gutting and have to try to figure out what I missed.

How bad is this movie on every level, there is little to no story or character building.

Don't waste your time like I did.

Cat's is funny at times though mostly boring.

I cried more or of shear horror when I left the theater than when my dog died in my childhood.

Even if this movie goes against present standards of cool or decency (decency is code for boring!

Which is fascinating.

Was it worth watching?

Don't waste your money on this.

In fact, I enjoyed it more than LA LA LAND and The GREATEST SHOWMAN, to name a few.

Please please please do not put yourself through it, ofcourse Jennifer Hudson's singing is stunning but by the time her scene comes on you want to leave the cinema!

To call it the worst movie you've ever seen is to admit that you need to get around a bit more and form some opinions of your own.

The music isn't that great, with no story to speak of, so I think many people's fondness for the show is as much misty water-colored moments of nostalgia as it is praise for the show.

It was awkward, disturbing, disjointed.

It's a waste of your time.

People who are saying ridiculous things like "this is the worst movie I have ever seen" says much more about them than it does about this movie.

Cats is a Huge Misfire, Boring and Dumb Are the Words That Come to Mind .

Speaking of which, the comic relief section, Rebel Wilson and James Corden were good, they had the most boring songs of them all, and made them work.

The costumes were fantastic, the cat mannerisms captured were spot on, and the emotion evoked in song was stunning.

It's a bad plodding reimagined version of Cats made by people who have no idea what they are doing.

This version made a few changes to the play, but it's still enjoyable.

I watched the movie yesterday walked out of after 40 mins my eyes were hurbing cant believe that they actually made this big load of crap to be honest I am traumatized for life what a load of trash and waste of money and that movie belongs in the dustbins right at the bottom and must never come back to the top wow what garbage this movie was such a shame

However, I did enjoy it at the time, and the music is still entertaining.

I knew what to expect, so I enjoyed it a lot.

But I am also encouraging you to go out and see this movie, because it is unquestionably entertaining.

This is hands down the worst movie that I have ever had the displeasure of watching.

At worst, I was expecting to find it as obnoxious and pointless as actual cats and, at best, I was hoping for *so bad it's good.

But I left the theater after watching Ian Mckellan, one of my favorite actors in the world say "Meow" to the camera.

That ruined the movie for me, and I fell asleep.

While that can still work if each individual part is fun and exciting, the creators of this musical failed to do even that.

Worst movie of the decade.

There is no storyline .

The dancing was entertaining, especially Skimbleshanks' scene.

This is the WORST movie EVER and I saw Battlefield Earth and Ecks Vs.

Smoke a little weed, put the mind in neutral, and forget that the collars around the kitties' necks have a tendency to move just slightly slower than the necks themselves.

Result: an enjoyable film with great characters and song.

The stage play had very little plot and was carried by the music and dancing.

This is fun, entertaining and something to celebrate yourself.

It's easy to simply say this is one of the worst movies in a long time.

The constant at of different songs and moods can be overwhelming at times but once you submit yourself to the fever dream it's absolutely compelling.

It took me a while to finish the entire movie, as I frequently stopped watching it due to boredom.

Worst movie of all time.

It's just a waste of time.

Watching a two hour long theatre bit from a screen is deadly boring.

All the celebrities were highly enjoyable to watch.

While I agree that the storyline is a bit thin, I found the movie very entertaining.

Well, I'm glad to say my friend and I actually got a kick out of the movie and enjoyed it for its originality of presentation, the seamless insertions of song-appropriate scenery, and the typical cat behaviors performed by both young and old felines.

Very enjoyable, attention capturing and entertaining.

It definitely has plenty of flaws, but in the end I enjoyed it and I did not expect to.

Most of the songs were dull..some were lively.

It was SO boring and hard to watch.

Cats is visually stunning, disturbing, amusing and weird .

While these did take me out of the film, the film's biggest problem is that it's boring.

Watching it was a blast, and I think I'll probably watch it again at some point, because it's that bizarrely compelling.

If you haven't seen that musical then possibly, like me, you will find this film version empty, baseless and only vaguely entertaining.

I cannot say I was bored at any point in the movie.

I found it entertaining and moving and it gave those familiar with Cats a different angle on the work.

I enjoyed it thoroughly, it's great to see a movie which presents such an on-screen spectacle.

The comic relief provided by various cast members was uneven, some good, some "meh" but these short scenes do make Cats more entertaining and give audience members a chance to catch their collective breath.

It's lively and enjoyable which is what you want in a light hearted musical.

You really have to watch this movie multiple times to understand how truly enjoyable and entertaining it is-I agreed with you guys before I watched it a second time, and just trust me, it's actually not that bad.

Worst movie I've seen in 2019 so far and I watched Good Boys.

Then imagine that this was also incredibly boring.

" Hard to believe that so many people have lost their ability to imagine something beyond their narrow, dull lives.

There was little to no plot, and where there was plot, it was lost in chaos and disgust.

The original stage show had very little plot, and the original poems of course have none.

The dancing is excellent, the songs entertaining and I thought Francesca Hayward made an outstanding first performance reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn.

The dancing, the sets, the cat "acting" and the weird story line - it was entertaining and visually impressive.

The CGI moves were unexpected.

Empty knowing that there are people starving in Kraaifontein and I had just thrown money away on this film.

Overall, I enjoyed it.

Not much of a plot, but very entertaining.

Cats was an mind blowing and amazing experience.

I have to admit, the second time around, it was much more enjoyable.

Don't waste your time.

This doesn't need to exist, the play has little to no plot at the best of times.

The film is boring, the acting is bad and the cgi is some of the worst I've ever seen.

Fell asleep on & off throughout the first half & then sat with my head in my hands laughing & gibbering for the rest of the time.

I was dragged to it by my theater friends of friends and have no black ballad them from all entertainment decisions for our group....

It was nice to watch, but more entertaining was watching the incredibly talented dancers who must have put a lot of hard work in to this film.

+ Grizabella's singing was absolutely stunning !

I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Very enjoyable...

I had seen the theatre production of it on dvd and my mum had seen it in theatre twice and we both enjoyed it so much.

Things I liked:° The Visuals Were Great° I like the Musical style, It was very Enjoyable.

Just got back from seeing Cats and both my wife and I really enjoyed it.

Taylor Swift sings Beautiful Ghosts and I enjoyed it very much.

Non-existent plot, painfully long and distasteful songs.

It was very entertaining and enjoyable.

My girlfriend wanted to leave the theatre after this song, and it was her first time wanting to leave during movie.

It is an unusual show that's for sure and I understand why it wouldn't appeal to everyone however I enjoyed it enough to think about going to see the live show.

I've seen the first scene of the movie in my nightmare beforeit was bad and boring and i paid fifteen dollars plus popcorn and i think it was the first movie i watched in theatre all year

It could have been so much more, but they chose to make it boring as hell.

I've seen a lot of bad movies, but I can say that Cats is one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.

Hands down, worst movie of the decade.

Many years ago I was dragged along to the stage show which itself made me question my existence.

Worst Movie of the Year

Was surprised that was enjoyable, cgi cats bit weird ( you get used to it) and at times the music drowns out singing.

(I definitely noticed that Old Deuteronomy's fur and ensemble bore a most striking resemblance to Queen Elizabeth in Shakespeare in Love, which I'm sure was totally intentional, and I'm reasonably sure I've seen Gus's "human" in a similar outfit for a different role as well.

I enjoyed it!

Storyline was slow and I'm still confused what exactly the story is.

I don't know and actually not really care, because the stunning performances take all the attention.

This will go down in history as one of the most painfully unwatchable movies ever released by a major studio.

Tom Hooper did it again...! Everything in the films is just like have always been, the visuals are stunning.

Sure, you don't always know what's happening, bit it's an engaging film.

I enjoyed it so much that I could sit through it again and again!!

I went with my 14 year old and we both enjoyed it!

A plot-less, painful and embarrassingly bad big budget extravaganza that will live long in echelons of epic Hollywood failures.

There is no real plot to speak of and the songs are lackluster.

it has no plot, no production value, what I am saying is it makes The Rocky Horror Picture Show look like The Godfather.

In summary I feel the CGI deserves a lot of the hate it has received however I walked out of the cinema thoroughly entertained and would likely watch the movie again in the future.

Jennifer Hudson is superb and commanding as always; the newbie playing Victoria was beautiful both with her stunning ballet moves and her delicate soft voice singing Ms Swift's new song; Judy Dench was fabulous and stately as Old Deuteronomy.

1/10 for being overtly pretentious.

But I enjoyed myself after the slow start and if people who don't mind a sung through musical can forget comparisons with the stage version and just take this on its own, I believe they can find enjoyment here.

Dull and boring .

The other actors either were very boring and uninspiring, or simply lack the talent or training for singing.

For those people who say there's no plot I ask what were you expecting?

I left the theater with many other good samaritans who are also traumatized.

The 'lyrics are boring and uninspiring and tbh half the time I could not make them out anyway.

Started a little slow, but once the music and dancing kicked in it was super enjoyable.

Easily one of the most cringe-worthy, soulless, incoherent and, above all, pointless and meaningless things I've ever seen.

Total Waste of Time.

They turned a happy upbeat song with a solo dance from Mr. Mistoffelees into a boring speak-sing while he stands on stage, and then repeating the chorus infinitely while staring at a stick?

The dance numbers were quite bland and static , almost solo pieces rather than great musical ensembles.

I'll tell you, I watched possibly the most boring trip of a film ever!

It's a shame this movie has been so badly slated across the board as people who would have enjoyed it have been put off.

Francesca Hayward was absolutely stunning!

Critics can unfortunately ruin a films prospects at the box office I hate the phrase some friends use " oh I didn't go and see it because it got rotten reviews " I always say make up your own mind I've seen so many enjoyable movies that the critics have panned and I've seen some very average films that some critics wax lyrically about.

Even so, it was overall enjoyable.

There is no plot, the songs were instantly forgettable with distinctly average performances and the whole thing was just weird.

The last line of the film is pointless and almost makes you roll your eyes.

I saw this film on the evening of Wednesday, January 15, 2020, and while I'd originally assumed that one or two songs would inevitably linger in my head long after I'd left the theater, it was actually the slurping coming from the mouth of Magneto/Gandalf/Richard III that has haunted me for the past 48 hours and counting.

But seriously Cats is good - for the type of diversion that it is, and this is assuming that you are willing to let it be what it is; it is cute and pretty and whimsical and fun, AND entertaining.

I wouldn't recommend this, it's a total waste of time and money.

We went with the family (12 of us) > 3 generations > kids age 5 to 10 and everybody enjoyed it.

Yes, but the boring songs are the exact same ones as in the musical.

Entertaining trainwrecks are hard to come by, and at the end of the day, this movie doesn't make me angry and doesn't make me feel like I wasted my money on it, despite the fact that just about every creative decision was wrong and that one day it may well give me nightmares.

The show had pace this movie dragged and it just did not have the pop pop pop of the original.

I've seen a lot of people call it boring and I have no idea why.

I'm more than happy to go see something weird while everyone else is pushing out formulaic "safe" stuff.

The songs remained in my head even if the movie was, like most music videos, unique, trying hard and fleetingly entertaining.

I've just watched it in my local cinema, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and so it appeared did did everyone else at this viewing.

Fourth, the tone for Cats is completely strange, off-putting, confusing and constantly jarring, which makes the film struggle of finding its identity, with the film erratically jumping from a comedy or an epic musical fantasy or a family-friendly genre, which makes the film completely odd.

Aside from the unnerving visuals, there is an entertaining story that you can waste a couple hours of your life watching.

It has some decent production design, some bright spots in the acting and choreography but that can't compensate for a lacking story, uninteresting music, weird CGI and poor characterization.

Bland cinematography more insulting than the animation .

Worst movie of the decade .

It was every bit as entertaining as the actual stage musical -- and even more.


It's fun and entertaining and well worth a watch.

Probably the worst movie ever made!


Well I'm going to give this a moderately positive score, because I enjoyed it for what it is - a movie version of a stage musical which is based loosely on T.

I think the target of this movie is to save The Room from being #1 worst movie in history .

I can't understand why this has had bad reviews, it's thoroughly entertaining and a unique story and spectacle.

It was thoroughly entertaining.

Visually the CGI cats were fine, maybe strange but similar to the stage show, The backdrops were bland mainly blurry and everything had this sickly pink tinge to it regardless of night day or lighting.

So unless you're a huge fan, and I mean a HUGE fan of the Broadway musical, there are better ways to waste 110 minutes of your life.

Yeah, the plot was somewhat bland and distasteful, and lacking punch or finesse.

And in a world with too many whooshy horror movies, trite romantic comedies and so many Spiderman movies, that has to count for something.

I think if you've seen the Cats show then you will understand the sporadic and, at times, disjointed narrative and will be rather impressed with the translation to the cinematic screens.


Cats, sceptical after mixed reviews but we really enjoyed it .

CatsMy advise, if you were a fan of the stage show then this may be for you but for everyone else it's a total bore.

Since I was familiar with the songs, I did note that some songs were not what they could of been, but overall they were very entertaining and even moving.

I also still don't know what a jelicul cat is, waste of money dont see under any circumstance

save your money and your soul

The colors and sets were breathtaking, the music sounded like heaven, and the actors were brilliant.

The acting ranges from bland to embarrassing, made all the more disappointing given the level of talent among the cast.

Worst movie I have ever seen .

Worst movie .

The song they added for the movie was far too simple compared to the other songs, and felt very cliche.

It's just unwatchable .

Some more enjoyable than others.

This movie has surpassed "The Room" as the worst movie ever made.

Also there is absolutely no plot and we never learn any of the cats names.

The worst movie on earth .

Wow what an aweful film i actually walked out of the cinema after 40 mins i just could not force myself to watch till the end ......!!!!

Yes, I really did appreciate the film, it was far more entertaining than the Wizard of Oz and the endless repeats on TV, this was a breath of fresh air.

The film's so boring.

I enjoyed it because of the wonderful dancing.

Yes it's weird, and at times boring because the songs just keep bleeding into each other, but overall its an entertaining spectacle that kids will like.

This movie was so boring from the opening scene to the (never ending) closing scene that I forgot why I love musicals.

If you go to see this movie demanding that the standard movie template should fit perfectly over the top of it, the check boxes in your How To Write A Movie text book will be left empty, and Cats will be the unholy terror that thousands of internet experts are idiotically proclaiming it to be.

The sets, dancing, and cats themselves are visually stunning - not to mention personable, beautiful and obviously dedicated to giving extremely heartfelt performances.

Between the truly enjoyable music and the film's ability to bring me to tears (with laughter), I can't say that I hate it or that I don't intend to watch it multiple times throughout my life.

We really enjoyed it from start to finish.

Otherwise, there is nothing of interest is this giant,boring, inept, disaster.

Perhaps the most entertaining of all stage musicals, now in its filmed version.

I still found it enjoyable despite its many downsides.

Worse, the live singing approach that he employed within this movie was pointless and unnecessary, while giving a disservice for the cast members who can't simultaneously act and sing at the same time.

Dont waste your money .

They pumped them full of drugs and forced them to stay awake for days until they lost their mind.

This made it in my opinion even more entertaining.

Like if not for the bad story telling, lack of plot, and seemingly never ending pointless musical numbers, the craftmanship was just not good.

I enjoyed it as a manifestation of the theatre show in an experimental format on-screen.

When I left the theater I cried more out of shear terror than I did as a kid when my dog got hit after it escaped its leash and ran onto an active airplane landing strip.

Please use the money you'd potentially waste on this movie to a more deserving charity, children in Africa deserve your money more than the excuse of producers who created this movie.
