For some reason humans actually think that their opinions on movies about animals, their experiences, and their relationships with other…
A tune-filled animated extravaganza.
When Madame Adelaide Bonfamille leaves her fortune to Duchess and her children -- Bonfamille's prize family of domesticated house cats -- the butler plots to steal the money and kidnaps the heirs, leaving them out on a country road. All seems lost until the wily Thomas O'Malley Cat and his jazz-playing alley cats come to the Aristocats's rescue.
"Because I'm a lady, that's why."
Charming and funny even if slightly childish. I love the old-school, hand-drawn art style (very 101 Dalmatians) and the class consciousness, even if it demonizes the lower class as money-grubbing villains (the butler) or lazy party animals (the alley cats). That Asian cat is seriously offensive though. One of Alice's favorites, and part of me feels bad for not liking it more. Let's be honest: How to Train Your Dragon might have been cute, but The Aristocats pulls off cute with the added classiness of ♪Abraham de Lacy♪ ♪Giuseppe Casey♪ ♪Thomas O'Malley♪ ♪O'Malley the alley cat♪
Anyone who walked out of this film and claimed they didn't want to be a cat is an outright liar.
The only thing that holds this film from perfection is not having this .
Review In A Nutshell:
Cats have always been an unpopular subject for the Disney studio, most of them are found in an antagonistic position, at times even incapable of redemption. I think it was about time that the studio did something about this; a film that would show diversity in depicting other animals, exploring more of their community and the culture they follow, and doing so that would balance education and entertainment. The Aristocats would be the film to provide the experience that dog-lovers had with 101 Dalmatians and Lady and the Tramp; but does it succeed in doing so? In a way, yes, there is many to cherish in Disney’s 20th animated feature, but there is also lingering flaws…
This movie made me take a catnap
Thanks to Disney re-releasing all their classic animated films on Blu-Ray I’ve been able to relive my childhood all over again. The Aristocats was never a favourite, and is in fact one of Wolfgang Reitherman’s weakest feature films, but its qualities still shine through. It is essentially a more swinging, less iconic, version of Lady and the Tramp but with a feline twist. Watching it now with a more critical eye you realise how uneventful and slight the film is, yet whilst it fails to compete with the studio’s true greats this is still a film with bags of charm.
The cast are all brilliant, and whilst the episodic nature of the story means many go by the wayside (the…

When you do your scales and your arpeggios
Remember those lines from the song Scales and Arpeggios? Now imagine a little girl singing them so that every word is mumbled gobbledygook and you've basically got my childhood. I never knew most of the words to Disney songs but I memorised pretty much all the tunes and would sit in front of my tv for hours, mesmerised by the music and characters. This film was one of my favourites and so I'm massively biased whenever I revisit it. I find it hard to think objectively about it because every single sound and image is so familiar and homely,…
Everybody wants to be a cat,
because a cat's the only cat
who knows where it's at.
A good animated movie, even though it's far from Disney's best.
The characters are good, the songs are good, and the visuals are good, but there's nothing spectacular about this one. A fun family movie at the very least.
Been some time since I last saw this. Still a classic, but no where near my favorite Disney film. My wife loves this film though. It was fun sitting with her and rewatching.
if you think about it, it's very likely that when the kittens grow up, marie is gonna fuck one or both of her brothers.
not only a commentary on the dangers of pedigree and purebreds.
but also on the terrors of inbreeding within the european wealthy elite.
pls spay and neuter ur pets
another one of the best disney movies imo
A lot of nostalgia for me and this movie. I still like it a lot, and it's quite a bit different than other Disney movies of its era.
Every time I rewatch it I forget about the drunk ass goose that's there for not really any particular reason. It happens quite a bit in this movie though. Like the movie will just come to a halt while the cats play musical instruments or the dogs play looney tunes with Edgar.
Also I wish I had a cat named Abraham DeLacey Giuseppe Casey Thomas O'Malley because that's the most bad ass name you could give a cat
Magnifique! Maybe my first contact with jazz.
The best Walt Disney Animation Studios® film, hands down. Don't @ me.
(Yes, I just watched two Disney movies back-to-back. Why? Because I've lost control of my life.)
So it turns out I love Animated Theatrically Released Disney Movies. This list only includes those films released through the…
