Cats Don't Dance (DVD)
Cats Don't Dance is typical fare: a dancing cat who wants to be a Hollywood star circa 1939. Of course, animals only play animal roles in the movies, but our hero Danny (a cat) won't accept that as an answer. Plenty of big laughs for adults here, but there are also some wonderful characters including the bratty baby starlet Darla Dimple (Shirley Temple meets Baby Herman) and her Schwarzenegger-type bodyguard Max. There's also a jittery hippo, a cute penguin, and a keen elephant who helps Danny fulfill his dream and land the girl--err, cat. Randy Newman's songs are just as inspired as the film: a pleasant, kid-friendly picture with lots to satisfy the older crowd as well. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This was one of the last films that Gene Kelly worked on before he died. This film touches the heart. During the "Tell me Lies" sequence we see Danny leaving to go back home. I would be tearing up by the end of the song.
It is a film that says that you should hold on to your dream and don't let anyone tell you anything different. Rest in Peace Gene Kelly... We love you and Miss you... Great film....
"Call that entertainment?"- Leonard Martin
I DO! The animation and plot is awesome! The villian is a 5 year old meanie.
"The songs are unmemorable..."- Leonard Martin
What cave did YOU crawl out of, Leo? The songs are wonderful. I still hum "Nothin's Gonna Stop Us" at school.
I know this is more of a argument than a review, but I really love this movie and you will too!
The story follows Danny, a cat from Kokomo who has big dreams, dreams of becoming a HUGE story in Hollywood. He's even made a checklist, which includes getting a lead role by the end of the week. But Danny's dreams are cut down-to-size when he is cast in a movie with movie star Darla Dimples(A Shirley Temple-like star), a cute looking girl with a short temper and intense hatred for animals. He soon finds out that animals have no place in Hollywood, except as playing stereotypical roles. Every single other animal he meets has some sort of dreams for making it big, but they've all been crushed in one way or another.
The thing I find so special about "Cats Don't Dance" is that, I really enjoyed it when I was 11yrs. Now I just thought it was a fun cartoon with some great tunes. But now that I'm older I see that the themes in this film parallel that of many ethnic actors trying to break into Hollywood, I guess, particularly blacks.
Cats Don't Dance, isn't for younger children, because well, it wont hold their attention span the whole time(Tried it with my 4yr nephew), even though there is a lot of slap-stick humor that kids love so much. I guess it all depends on the child. :D
If you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary, with some creative ideas, fun characters, great songs, fun animation, and an interesting and intelligent storyline that can appeal to children and adults alike, then I suggest "Cats Don't Dance".
*Enjoy* & God Bless ~Amy
