Cats Don't Dance is a blast... There's a pleasing luminescence to the animation, with colors that glow like neon throughout.
Cats Don't Dance has some of the sharp irreverence of the brilliant Who Framed Roger Rabbit. There are plenty of clever asides and witty one-liners, not to mention a few terrific supporting characters.
Decked out with sharp and colorful design work, some well-drawn characters and six snappy Randy Newman tunes, this first entry from Turner Feature Animation goes down very easily but lacks a hook.
While the animated characters, bright colors and an appealing Randy Newman score may keep the children content, Cats Don't Dance is no saccharine fantasy. Its Hollywood references and dark satire constitute its real strengths.
A startling miscalculation. It has lots of cute animals... But blending parody and nostalgia about an era half a century removed from the lives of the core audience seems a foolish indulgence
Cats Don't Dance, nor do they enchant.
Very cute animation with Randy Newman music.
Cute kid-flick, and a must-see for Scott Bakula fans.
A happy-go-lucky romp that dishes up the most cartoon fun since Toy Story.
For you fuddy duddies out there who think cartoons are for kids, I don't know when the last time you saw a cartoon was, but movie cartoons have never been for kids.
Cats Don't Dance is not compelling and it's not a breakthrough, but on its own terms, it works well. Whether this will appeal to kids is debatable; the story involves a time and a subject they're not much interested in.
An underrated Gem in the animated world. This film is one of the greatest films ever created, and when I was little I never liked this film, but now I consider it one of my favorite movies. The music is fantastic, the animation is top-notch, the plot is decent, and characters and acting are wonderful. Randy Newman may have written some songs that aren't that impressive but these songs are some of his best songs, and they are all sung fantastically by the characters, they're either emotional songs, or energetic and fun songs, and combine that with the great animation and you have one heck of an awesome animated film.
I wasn't that impressed with this movie as a kid, but now that I've seen musicals of the 30s and 40s, I want to see it again, as it's supposed to parody them.
the little girl is so fucking infuriating and creepy.
I liked the concept and the animation.
