Cats Don't Dance Reviews

August 15, 2018
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.

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.
