A Talking Cat!?! asks you to suspend a lot of disbelief. To quantify this, let’s say you have 1,000 blue whales. First, I’d like to compliment you on your whale collection. That’s quite an accomplishment. But let’s say you killed and hollowed out those whales and then you filled those whales with liquified pandas. And that those liquified pandas represented disbelief. 1,000 blue whales full of liquified pandas is the amount of disbelief you need to suspend for A Talking Cat!?!
Duffy, the talking cat, has an odd restriction. He can only speak to someone once. What does that mean? It means the animation budget for A Talking Cat!?! rests somewhere between the $9.95 and $10.03 mark. But more specifically, what constitutes “once?”
It doesn’t mean one sentence. It doesn’t mean one topic. Maybe it’s one conversation, but the boundaries of a conversation are mushy like a newborn’s head.
I can accept that there is a talking cat. I can accept that the cat wants to help people. What I can’t accept is that nobody calls him on this “once” business. When you get three wishes (like we’ve all gotten), your first wish is always for infinite wishes. It’s human nature to test loopholes and restrictions.
So, let’s say a cat just talked to you. You’re not going to simply freak out, then listen, and finally go about your business. You’re going to poke. You’re going to prod. You’re going to whip out your smartphone and capture this moment.
There is a lot wrong with A Talking Cat!?!, but the single biggest issue is that nobody acts like a human being. They act like aliens pretending to be humans. Humans like business college. Humans like cheese puffs. Humans love website and algorithms.
It’s like A Talking Cat!?! was written by a middle school extraterrestrial who based their entire project on a single microfiche article and spent the rest of their study time trying to find dirty pictures in the encyclopedia.
In conclusion, A Talking Cat!?! is full of people should not be allowed near swimming pools or ovens, for their own safety. But they spend a lot of time near pools and ovens. I find their continued state of non-death hard to believe.
