The Cats movie reviews are in, and folks, they are…not great.

Early clips and the trailer showed some pretty terrifying visual choices. While audiences might suspend their disbelief and enjoy a human dressed as a cat on stage for a couple of hours, a CGI mix of human and cat body parts is more horrifying than magical.

The film was released and everyone’s fears were confirmed. The movie is apparently awful, so awful in fact that Cats reviews have crossed over from being critical to being hilarious. They might be the best part of the whole thing:
