"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.

People, this shit is bonkers!

 

 

 

 

 

"A Talking Cat!?!" is one of those movies like "Troll 2", "Birdemic: Shock and Terror", or (my personal favorite) "The Room". It's going to be the next cult classic.

 

It is about... honestly it doesn't matter what this movie is about. All you need to know is that a former porn star is one of the leads, the cat's voice was recorded over a speakerphone while some guy was in his kitchen, and the cat's acting is all thanks to a laser pointer that is clearly visible in many of the shots.

 

There is next to no information about this movie online.

 

If anyone is going to help me understand what the fuck is happening, It's How Did this Get Made?

The IMDB page says it's got a budget of $1,000,000 (estimated), you would never know that looking at this trailer. didn't we see this recommended once before..I swear to god i've seen that cat before, I am getting deja vu.

 

This would be a great movie if the cat gets killed in the first five mins..

I have watched this movie several times, and it still completely confounds and delights me. It is amazing.

 

Also, these 6 seconds from the film will convince anyone to watch it.

I didn't work on the movie. I'm simply amazed by it. It is so perfectly wrong. I created a Tumblr so I could blog about the movie scene by scene. There is just so much to comment on. It is the worst and I love it.

 

Has everyone taken a look at the 1313 movies? They're basically soft core GLBT "horror" movies filmed in the same house. With the same establishing shots. With the same props. There is something much deeper going on here.

Here's my second proposal that I really hope leads to an episode. Again this is a terrifying children's film though in this case is more of a low-budget disaster. On one hand we have possibly drunk former Best-Actor nominee Eric Roberts as a slurring talking cat in some of the most convoluted film plotting I have ever seen. On top of that you get the magic combo of dire effects, porn actors, porn sets, and a porn director because you know for kids. I included the trailer and the AV Club write up below just hopefully to build a bit of interest.

 

FYC,

chaos...reigns

Just watched this on netflix, and I am in love with it. I don't think there's any doubt that Roberts was sloshed when he did his voiceover work. Besides that, man, where to even begin? The casio keyboard sample music soundtrack, which runs constantly? The crazy clothes-scanning scene? The sock on the cat's head? This movie is a wonder.

It is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. I've watched it over and over.

I fucking love this line: -A talking cat?! That's just stupid! That's the best you can come up with?!

 

Probably what the writer got told countless of times before someone decided to finally do it.

I think this is going to end up being one of those movies like Birdemic which I end up rewatching like every two months.

Please please please do this one! It is on Netflix right now. A Birdemic-level film....

 

 

That is all.

 

Good day.

You guys need to do this one. It'll blow your minds. You guys won't be able to handle it. Here's some highlights:

 

-The director uses the psuedonym Mary Crawford, but his real name is David DeCoteau. He';s directed 105 movies, most of them under different names. A lot of them gay-themed and some of them just full-on gay porn movies. The house used in this movie has been in a lot of gay porn.

 

-There's a weird gay undercurrent to this whole movie. Watch it and you'll see what I mean.

 

-Eric Roberts did all his voice work over a phone and it's amazingly obvious.

 

-There's at least one instance where you can see the laser pointer used to direct the cat.

 

-The Onion AV Club has called it "The Room of...animal movies" : http://www.avclub.com/articles/a-talking-cat-is-the-room-of-anthropomorphic-anima,93563/

 

-At the end, a character is treading water in a pool and says, "Cannonball!"

 

-"I should follow Phil inside, but there is seriously nothing better than a cat nap. That's why they call it that you know."

 

-The cat is a god/Christ figure.

 

I don't want to give too much away, because there's the intense joy that comes with mind boggling insanity. This is a must.

This is the Room of talking animal movies. Directed by a man who also shoots soft core gay porn starring Eric Roberts' voice possibly left on an answering machine as Duffy the cat. Oh and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters' own Johnny Whitaker.

 

Here's an AV Club article for more:

*spoiler alert*

 

*Best Manzoukas voice* THIS MOVIE IS FU-CKING GAR-BAGE!!!!! Holy shit. This movie is just...wow. I agree wholeheartedly with what That Guy said. Also, let's get one thing straight: the son is gay, right? I mean, there's nothing wrong with that, but he's gotta be. That whole scene at the end where Eric Roberts cat is describing what they do post cat-revival (btw, I love how they were all acting like the cat was mortally wounded when all it had was a haphazardly attached piece of gauze around it's head) looks more like gay friend messing around with lady friend at pool than girlfriend and boyfriend messing around the pool. Then there's that other pool scene. I also find it hard to believe that the son doesn't know what to wear; has to rely on that girl's program to help him out.

 

 

One more question: This is supposed to be a children's movie right? Then why does the dad's t-shirt translate to : One fucking day at a time? So many questions...

A few minutes into the movie when the weirdly shaped and coiffed dad joins his son (who seems to be wearing rolled up capri pants), I immediately thought, "They're gay lovers." And that feeling never left me the entire movie. It got a lot worse when that other guy taught him how to swim.

 

The weirdest thing about it supposedly being a kids movie is there's NOTHING in this movie that kids would enjoy. The cat is sidelined and doesn't do anything fun or cool. Everyone else in the movie is either 22 or 50. And it's all boring adult problems. One kid doesn't know what he wants to do with his life. A guy deals with being retired. "Stop annoying mom about going to business college."

 

The director has some other "kids" movie on Netflix: A Christmas Puppy, which enraged Netflix because it didn't actually have a puppy in it, and An Easter Bunny Puppy. It was Easter Bunny Puppy that made me realize the director's trademark is laborious, 10 minute montages of people doing really boring thing. Also, Easter Bunny Puppy has a leathery porn actress who sounds like she smoked all the cigarettes. At the end of the movie she mentions she's losing her voice, but she's talked that way the entire movie.
