Kids will laugh at anything, right? Not this tawdry remake of Hanna-Barbera's cartoon series about a streetwise tom and his posse of alley cats.
Aside from some wry jokes and the odd piece of gutter humour, there's very little about Top Cat: The Movie to entertain younger viewers.
No child or parent deserves to be subjected to something so effortless and cynical. Top Cat: The Movie is a rarity; an almost completely mirthless, charmless animated film.
Provides a handful of decent laughs, though some of the jokes are a bit dodgy, the 3D effects are entirely superfluous and younger children might be a little bored.
What really raises the hackles are its tatty attempts to update the character to a modern New York filled with mobile phones, surveillance cameras and robot cops.
Adults looking for undemanding fare for their kids may find Top Cat's brand of sass, irreverence and cheeky charm offer a persuasive alternative to today's crasser children's entertainments.
A charmless affair, this is not the Top Cat movie anyone wanted.
From the objectification of females to the condoning of crime, the mild political incorrectness of the 1960s fits uneasily with the 21st century upgrades.
Top Cat returns with a purr rather than a MEOW, sorely let down by its odd technicalities and lack of engaging script.
It's the bottom of the heap, and it frankly looks cheap, the disaster of the year is - Top Cat.
If you're feeling nostalgic, dig out some copies of the original cartoon instead.
It is a grievous insult not only to the original cartoon but animation in general, and also arguably cats.
