Product Description

Product Description

Cats Don't Dance (DVD)

Amazon.ca

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.

I'm a sucker when it comes to uplifting movies; this is about a small town cat that turns into a big movie star! But this is like my favorite movie, it's about a Cat named Danny that lives in little Kokomo, and wants to become a famous movie star. Image a 1930's time. (...) Drawing is good, there like animals, but they stand up, but very good drawing: 8.5/10 Fun, it's VERY FUN, a really good fun movie: 9.5/10 Movie play, only 1 hour and 20 minutes: 4/10 Sound, well there is lots of sound in the movie when they sing and dance: 10/10 Overall, this movie is super cool: 9.5/10, other then it being short, it is perfect. Buy it!

"Cats Don't Dance" really took me by surprise. What a clever idea, flawlessly executed! If you enjoy musicals of the 40s and 50s, and if you enjoy bold, fast-paced animation, then this is the movie for you. Set in the 1940s, a naive but talented cat moves from the Mid-West to Hollywood, hoping to sing and dance his way to the top. His hopes are quickly obstructed by the Hollywood machine, which is dominated by Darla Dimple - a hilarious Shirley Temple parody. The villainous Dimple finally gets what she deserves, as does the hopeful Danny the cat. A true gift from Warner Brothers to animated film lovers and their children. The movie really clicks with my kids.

Contrary to Mr. Maltin's opinion, this movie isn't dreary. It's bright, clever, well animated, and well executed. Plus, it's funny, really funny. Not only that, you'll be snapping your fingers while watching this movie in no time flat. The characters are completely unforgettable. These are full toons we're talking about, like Bugs Bunny and Road Runner. This movie also doesn't try to be something it's not. It's not a grand adventure, and it's not a morality play. Many animated movies that tried to do one or the other or both have failed. This movie masks its message behind a just-have-fun attitude. Okay, so this isn't The Iron Giant or Bambi or what have you, but it's still fun all the same. Listen to the cover for once. It is the funniest animated movie since Aladdin. Well, one of the funniest now.

I thought that Cat's Don't Dance is a wonderful film. Danny the Cat goes to the Hollywood Dream Factory to become a big star. A Shirley Temple rip off makes sure that SHE is the big cheese in Hollywood.
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....

Cats Don't Dance is a hillarious, musical about a cat who wants to act, but HUMANS have all the credit. Leonard Martin is a big dope thinking this movie is bad.
"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!

Its been a while since I saw this,but I remember how much I loved it after watching it once so I watched it again!!! Animals who all want to make it big in Hollywood,but can't because animals are'nt accepted to play anything,but animals,but they don't give up just yet!!!Darla Dimple is a totally bratty actress who tricks them and doesn't want them making it big doing whatever it takes to make sure they don't make it.! This is a very charming film for all ages and is a suitable film for the whole family so check out "Cat's Don't Dance"!!!

As far as Animated Musicals go, the songs in this could rival anything from Disney(Well, Randy Newman has done many things for Disney as well, so it makes perfect sense). The animation is colorful and splashy and the main theme/story is inventive. Not something to common in animated films these days.
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
