...unable to claw itself away from its detracting visuals.

I want to tell you I at least had fun... but this movie is also so horrible it doesn't even earn the status to make fun of magicians.

Watching the film version of Cats is truly mystifying, in neither a completely bad nor completely good way. Fans of the theater production may enjoy seeing their favorite songs or characters again, but there's little to recommend for anyone else.
