Cat! on a Plane! was a blessedly anticlimactic film. The feline protagonist, Mouse (as played by Mouse), begins her journey trapped inside a carrier and under the effects of a sedative. Too drugged up to do much of anything, she is moved across the country through cars, airplanes and security checkpoints.

There are only two real moments where the film ever gets tense. The security checkpoint where Mouse is brought out of her carrier and almost makes an escape is a terrifying scene, but it lasts for only two minutes before Mouse is forced inside the carrier where she remains for the majority of the film. The only other scene of tension is when the antagonist, Beth (as played by [personal profile] vangirl), nearly misses her flight. It seemed to be a moment to attempt to try and get the audience to sympathize with the antagonist but it too fell flat as they reach the plane in the nick of time and our hero remains trapped and drugged throughout.

The ending has Mouse and Beth arrive intact in Seattle, where they are picked up by Beth's catnapping accomplice [personal profile] cypher (as played by [personal profile] cypher) and brought to the antagonists' lair, where there's a brief moment of conflict between Mouse and the two cats that had already been living there. Supposedly it is meant to be a 'happy' ending as Mouse now has a new home with new toys and new friends to play with, but I imagine many cats in the audience would be uncomfortable by the fact that catnapping and feline imprisonment is apparently a good thing.

All in all, if you enjoy relaxing films where an imprisoned cat sleeps in a drug-induced state under airplane seats without any hint of tension or drama then this is the film of the season for you! If you want something more exciting however, then you will probably do well to avoid anything from 'True Story Bro' productions.


In other news, SEATTLE HAS DECENT LIVABLE WEATHER, OMG. :O!!!!
