The iconic duo Tom and Jerry fall flat in newest featured film!
As a child, I was obsessed with Tom and Jerry. You could always find me glued to the TV whenever they were on. These two are icons and have been around since the 1940s. Unfortunately, their time might be up, as the latest movie does a big disservice to the duo. I even bought these Tom and Jerry shoes to commemorate the 9 million views the trailer received on our Facebook page.
One of the most beloved rivalries in history is reignited when Jerry moves into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the event’s desperate planner to hire Tom to get rid of him. The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and possibly the hotel itself. But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them.
Any live-action movie featuring beloved animated characters should be the main focus of the film. Tom and Jerry should have been 100% animated instead of dragging in actors who were just there to collect a paycheck and seemed disinterested. Outside of the William Hanna and Joseph Barbera creations, there was zero comedy from any featured big names. Chloë Grace Moretz’s character was the only human worth being part of the movie. It was impossible to keep my attention throughout despite my love for these two characters. The plot was boring and full of fluff, and the runtime was 15 minutes too long, sitting at 1 hour and 41 minutes. This was not the movie that Tom and Jerry deserved.
I give the Tom and Jerry movie a 4 out of 10. I hope parents put this on for their children in the background as they get things done around the house instead of trying to find an open theater and overspending.
