Movie Info

This utterly charming classic family film tells the tale of Miss Minoes, a cat who is transformed into a young woman (Carice van Houten) and befriends Tibbe (Theo Maassen), a shy bumbling cub reporter for the local newspaper. Miss Minoes, still recognized as a cat by the neighborhood felines despite her new appearance, organizes them into a news-gathering service and helps Tibbe become a star reporter. He soon turns investigative and discovers that the popular chairman of the "Club For Friends of Animals" and boss of a nearby factory has evil plans... -- (C) Music Box

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Vincent Bal's film should appeal to kids, cat lovers and felines. I give it two stars, and my cat, Audrey, gives it three meows.

Yes, the film is silly and light as a feather, but who doesn't love gossiping cats?

"Miss Minoes" is a film I suspect would be adored by young girls who love cats. I am not that young woman.

[Conveys], with a light touch, important lessons for kids on the necessity of civic engagement, the perils of edit-ad conflicts, and the need to honor difference...

Clever cat tale has a bit of animal peril; for older kids.

Audience Reviews for Miss Minoes

Miss Minoes is a charming and albeit absurd tale of a cat who becomes a woman. Its hysterical at times, but thats about all it has going for it.

"Miss Minoes" is a film that would be adored by a young girl who loves cats. I am not that young girl.

[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/movie/coverv/33/245233.jpg[/img] Minoes is from the Netherlands. A cat drinks from a strange barrel and then it finds out it has turned into a human being. A reporter is on the verge of being fired since he is too shy to find out any stories to write about. Minoes (the cat lady) climbs into Tibbe's (the reporter) window when it is raining (she's been running along rooftops) the same day he has found her up a tree (a dog was chasing her). She tells him stories that the other cats know (cats know what we are saying!) and he tells his news stories that way. This was geared towards kids, but was a very cute fun movie. The cats spoke at times, but it actually wasn't disturbing. I didn't expect it, but it wasn't scary like those animals talking in commercials. It was much better done and very funny.
