"A Talking Cat!?!" was just added to Netflix and it seems that it went straight there as it is dated 2013. Maybe the first straight-to-streaming-video movie ever (BTW I could not find this on the Wiki or IMDb)? Even though this might be made for a family audenice, the acting and dialouge remined me of "Troll 2." I have not seen "Mac & I", but from what I heard from the podcast, this might be just as bad. Oh, I forget to mention that the cat (a self-aclaimed human whisper) is voiced by Eric Roberts doing his best Garfield impression after an all-night bender. See it before it becomes the next cult film.
On paper, this movie sounds like it might be interesting: directed by Robert Altman, includes delightful actors such as Jane Curtin, Jon Cryer, Cynthia Nixon, and Paul Dooley, and even has cameos by Bob Uecker, Melvin van Peebles, Martin Mull, and Dennis Hopper. However, this mess of a movie feels like a horrible failed attempt by Altman to deconstruct the 80's teen sex romp. With absolutely no story line, and odd hijinks for a teen comedy (like doing whatever it takes to see a King Sunny Ade concert. What!? What an obscure African musician for two suburban Arizona teens to party with!), this movie amounts to no more than a series of bizarre disjointed vignettes. There are some moments that feel like an 80's teen comedy...like Altman and the writers saw something similar in another movie once...but it's clear that they had no business working within this genre and really didn't know teens. There is no honesty, heart, or humor in this film. I would love to hear a few baffled "bonker's" and "litterally's" uttered in response to this film. It really is a nightmare that should never have made it to theatres.
