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,…
Part of Disney: (Re)Visiting the Canon.
A retread of One Hundred and One Dalmatians in far too many ways, The Aristocats is plagued by too much filler (I despise Napoleon and Lafayette, always have). The lack of a better villain in particular removes the stakes that would otherwise scaffold the jazzy and romantic bits, which are rudimentary but undoubtedly cool.
Highlights: "Scales and Arpeggios," "Thomas O'Malley Cat," and some kinky bits (swinging?), because that is how Duchess is nasty.
This all could have been
Avoided by not putting
The cats in the will
When o'malley first came on sceeen my sister goes 'here he is, god, he's just so suave'
Not the film I was expecting. I had tuned in hoping to expand my vocabulary with the help of a sweary documentary, but instead it turns out to be a cartoon from that Walter Dinsey fellow which I thought I hadn't seen before, but it turns out that Michael Rodd showed it to me in 30 seconds chunks on Screen Test.
I can now see that you can get away with watching it in half minute bits because there's no flipping story, well there is, but it's just a butler who finds out he'll inherit his employer's money so long as her cat's aren't around, so he carts them off into the country and leaves them there. And guess what?…
A charming, cute and timeless cat classic.
madame knows whats up trusting cats over some white man
Disney and Cats what more can I say.
Everybody wants to be a cat (me) so that Duchess can me their mother (also me).
But I really love my own mum. But if I was a cat, I'd want Duchess as my mum. You know?
