You demanded it. you monsters, and now it’s here: CATS! The film adaptation of the musical that clumped up Broadway’s litter box for eighteen years, riffed for your viewing pleasure.

It’s the movie that launched a thousand "digital butthole" jokes. You’ve probably seen some images, skimmed some memes, but nothing really prepares you for the full experience of CATS itself. It’s rare a movie can make you feel sorry for so many respected major actors, and also James Corden. Thrill as these stars of stage and screen struggle to sing through digital faces that slide out of place like Snapchat filters!

It’s almost certainly the first T.S. Eliot adaptation we’ve ever done (not counting Suburban Sasquatch, an odd turn in his career). Its legacy will be trivia questions like, “What’s the only movie to feature Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, Jason Derulo, and Taylor Swift?” But before that, its legacy is to be riffed by Mike, Kevin, and Bill! Join them for CATS, and finally learn the difference between Jellicle Cats and Gumbie Cats.*
