Tom and Jerry is a classic TV show that began on tv in the 1940s. It is the classic tale of a cat and mouse outsmarting and chasing each other, with a classical music soundtrack, in a cartoon. And now, Warner Animations has produced a movie version! The movie follows Tom and Jerry in New York City, where Jerry has moved to a fancy hotel, and Tom has been hired to get rid of him. The classic cat-and-mouse battle ensues, and threatens to ruin a wedding, careers, and possibly the hotel itself. The movie got a 25% on Rotten Tomatoes, so I am excited to see how it holds up. Or I’ll just give it a serious critical eye!
I watched Tom and Jerry every Saturday morning as a kid, and I cannot imagine this movie turned out good. I am excited to critique it and compare it to the original Tom and Jerry!
The movie is available on Hulu now.
