"Cats" just came out as a feature-length film, and audiences simply aren't feline it.
Despite its incredible star power (sorry, Swifties), Cats seems to be disappointing audiences in a big way. Just take a look at these tweets:
#CatsMovie is terrible. A descent into madness, while at the same time showing you what the gates of hell might look like. This is the best way to torture someone. This comes from someone who can appreciate musicals.

For people who have seen the show on Broadway, dozens of singing, dancing cats are no surprise. For the uninitiated, it can be a bit jarring, to say the least.
Reactions included people who were disappointed in general, with a smattering of disbelief from people who noticed major production flaws.
Some were so moved, they even composed poems about the experience.

My ears bleed.
My head aches.
Film was supposed to be my friend.
I feel betrayed.
I feel hurt.
Jason Derulo made me uncomfortable.
Rebel Wilson and James Corden will haunt my dreams forever.
Reviewing movies was meant to bring me joy.
I feel nothing.#CatsMovie pic.twitter.com/dvWM52L5Zn
Many people are simply perplexed.
I’ve been trying to write a tweet for #CatsMovie for almost 20 minutes and I just can’t come up with anything. I’m truly speechless. I’m baffled by the fact that this movie exists. I don’t even know what an actual cat looks like anymore. It’s a truly horrifying experience. Yikes. pic.twitter.com/7Z36M5aAbV— Austin Burke (@theBurk3nator) December 20, 2019
I used to think I was a cat person, but now I don't think I'm even a person person anymore #CatsMovie— Santa Sanghera 🎅 (@Sathnam) December 21, 2019
Keep in mind, even the pros are deeming this silver screen reboot a major cat-astrophe.
