Despite the talented bunch of cast, that ranged from phenomenal singers to incredible actors, the show was a huge pile of litter box.
Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Jason Derulo, Judi Dench, Jennifer Hudson, Francesca Hayward and many more didn’t deserve to flaunt their talents in a movie that was clearly a flop.
With Rotten Tomatoes giving the film an 18 percent on the Tomatometer, claiming it to be “Despite its fur-midable cast, this Cats adaptation is a clawful mistake that will leave most viewers begging to be put out of their mew-sery”.
When critics asked ‘Cats’ director Tom Hooper if he was impressed with his work, he had what rather one would say an excuse quite inexcusable , “at 8am the previous day” replied Tom. But we do wonder if without time constraints, would have done the film any good.
