videodante’s review published on Letterboxd:
VERY horny (but not in the ways you'd think). Extremely awful. Inscrutable. I enjoyed it immensely, but i watched it in a theatre with friends. Probably not worth seeing alone.
the thing about CATS is that the base musical sucks. so anything on top of that base musical has to improve on it. CATS (2019) does not. BUT! it is deliciously Bad In A Fun Way.
the cgi is awful. the acting? questionable. the directorial choices? unfathomable. there's a scene where rebel wilson vores like three humanoid roaches. in another scene, a cat we started calling "that twink train cat" parades the cast through a train car while the sense of scale rapidly oscillates between Tiny Cats and Cats Basically The Size Of People.
awful film. highly watchable
