Goofs

When the cat jumps across the doorway, Madison and Lara are facing the camera with David, Rebecca and Nicole behind them. Nicole is recording the scene on her phone, facing the back of the cat. But the scene the security guards see was taken from the movie camera angle, not Nicole's phone. See more »

Absolutely Underrated! Pre-paid bad publicity?(((
9 August 2016 | by daybreakkSee all my reviews

This is a light-hearted comedy! Unlike Star Treks and the likes or cheesy teens comedies, easy to sit through. Good not only for teens, though a bit offensive for cats. Acting and casting are not for disappointments! I rate it 9 lives +1 for its longer life and against dog lovers' low ratings discriminating, habitually, against little cats on the big screen! After all, it is thought-provocative, with a cat character brought to life by a compelling and intelligent cat star. Young actress Malina Weissman as Tom's daughter Rebecca is sweet and innocent childlike. The movie is absolutely Underrated! Pre-paid bad publicity?((((((
