Have any of you seen the move Cats Don't Dance?
Probably not. It was never really that popular I think because it wasn't made by Disney and it was the height of Disney mania. Which I will admit I was and still am forever an enormous Disney fan and should they ever desire a twenty something to come write about how awesome their parks are, or even better write a movie or tv show for them even though she has no experience, I will literally drop anything and everything.
But back to the point, Cats Don't Dance is a sweet little movie about Cats, and their friends who all work in the movie industry.
Through a series of misadventures, Danny the cat and his group of friends find their way to the big screen all while singing and dancing and fighting that weird giant named Max who is terrifying when he smiles. It seriously haunts my dreams guys. Seriously. Look.
Imagine the size of braces you would need for those chompers. His one tooth is bigger than that entire cat.
Anyways, the main thing I would like to discuss, is how does a great movie like this that I believe should be considered a classic get left behind in the dust behind some other movies that aren't as great. This movie is a movie for underdogs ( or cats I guess) and shows that even those of us who feel neglected can stand up to our tiny terrorizers and their weirdly giant henchmen and stand up for what we feel is right. That seems like cinematic heroism to me. Teaches us more than some princess movies do. Granted I love me some princess movies but seriously, all Aurora does is touch a sharp object and take a nap. This movie has a hippo that beats people up.
Case closed am I right?
Also, there is a sweet little love story between the goofy optimist and the talented cynic who has been in Hollywood too long that just rivals the classic Rom-Coms but with a lot more singing, and even more fur.
So go watch this movie immediately and also, give me suggestions of other underrated movies that don't get enough love.
