Audience Reviews for Mrs. Ashboro's Cat

Ellen Page stars in the Animal Planet original film Ghost Cat. A young teenager named Natalie starts to believe that the spirit of a dead cat is trying to tell her something from the beyond when she experiences a number of odd occurrences at her new house; meanwhile a land developer attempts to shut down an animal shelter that she volunteers at. The film really feels like it's pandering to animal lovers with the B story about the shelter, and the writing is really simplistic. Additionally, the performances are rather wooden and colorless. A contrived and formulaic kid's film, Ghost Cat is extraordinarily tame and unfulfilling.

It was a cute movie - definately geared more towards kids or young teens. Probably not something I would watch again, but it was okay.

aka Mrs. Ashboro's Cat I liked this one. Was a nice story. A father & Daughter are looking for a house to move into & the nephew of Mrs Ashboro wants to sell the house but she does not. (He?s just a greedy sod) She owns a pretty grey & white cat named Margaret. There?s also the owner of the animal sanctuary but I can?t remember her name she?s having money trouble & could lose the sanctuary a company is trying to buy here out & keeps sabotaging her. (like showing up there & letting the animals out to get her into trouble) it was a nice charming sweet movie that I hope you will give a chance. Oh & Gotta love the dog?s name.. Comfort! Now THAT?s Original! B
