It should be pointed out that the talking cat in A Talking Cat!?! hasn’t talked yet. We’ve heard its thoughts about beeping machines, yes. It sniffed some shoes, sure. But its mouth hasn’t opened to speak yet. There’s a reason for that, which we’ll get to when the talking actually happens.
Until then, we are treated to the voice of Eric Roberts at it floats blissfully over beautiful shots of nature, like this one.
Oh, sorry. That was a sewer culvert. Ummm, well. There are some waterfalls and palm trees in the movie too. But also, a sewer culvert.
As we gaze at the beauty of the culvert, Duffy (the talking cat) explains that he is a “human whisperer” and it’s his job to bring people together at just the right time.
Why? How? Shush. You and your stupid questions. I bet you’re that kind of person who was disappointed by the end of Lost.
Let me lay out our playing pieces so far. We have a father and son who hate each other/run a murder hotel. We have another terrible family filled with horrible people. And we have a cat that is going to bring all this hate and spite together under one roof.
Maybe this is a kids movie after all.
