Editorial Reviews

Get ready for a purrr-fectly hilarious comedy adventure starring Christina Ricci (THE ADDAMS FAMILY) and Doug E. Doug (OPERATION DUMBO DROP). When her faithful tomcat D.C. (aka "Darn Cat") brings home an important clue to a mysterious kidnapping, 16-year-old Patti Randall finds her ho-hum hometown suddenly turned into a hotbed of criminal excitement! And when she teams up with rookie FBI Agent Kelso to try to solve the baffling crime ... these would-be detectives follow THAT DARN CAT into some unexpected surprises! Outrageous double identities and sidesplitting misadventures abound in this hit remake of the comedy classic that's motion picture fun for everyone!|The film is based on the novel "Undercover Cat," by the Gordons and the screenplay the Gordons and Bill Walsh wrote for the 1965 Disney film. Dean Jones, who starred as Kelso in the earlier film, returns for a role in this version.|The star cat, Elvis, was discovered by his trainer, Larry Madrid, at the North Hollywood animal shelter. Elvis was actually selected because he was a perfect double for some other cats selected earlier, but Elvis turned out to be the star himself, and he hardly needed any doubles -- he did 98 percent of the work.|Edgefield, South Carolina, was selected as the fictional Massachusetts town in the movie, with the filmmakers even changing the town name in the movie to match the filming location.

I have always loved the older version staring Hayley Mills and was curious to see how the remake measured up. Need less to say, I was not impressed. More often than not, I find sequels and remakes to be worse than the originals. This is just another example and the only outstanding part I found really funny was Zeke trying to think and act like a cat.
It's likabe for kids because it's an "up-to-date" version. But in my opinion the older movie is much more entertaining, especially for adults. Besides it follows the book a lot closer than the newer production. I recommend seeing the old classic verses this one.

This is one remake that shouldn't have been made! The only thing it has in common with the original is that a cat came home wearing a wristwatch on his neck, everything else is a totally new story that doesn't make any sense. It appears that the current producers disliked the original plot so they added a bunch of silly subplots just to fill space. The lady butcher in love with a security guard leaving packages of meat on his doorstep, the "bloody twig" clue which turned out to be a maraschino cherry stem, the person who hasn't left their apartment for years, etc. were all distracting elements that nobody would have missed had they been left out.
My sons hadn't seen the original yet, and they thought this movie was stupid. They did enjoy the original when I rented it the following week.

A Funny Movie about a cat!!! Christina Ricci is so funny in this movie and she is SO HOT as well!!!:) She does a lot of funny things in this movie with a lot of heart as well. The movie is filmed when it's Halloween so talk about a Halloween Treat every year to see or whenever we want to see it!!!;) I remember seeing this funny movie on demand and I loved it and I'm glad that I have this movie on DVD!:)

There are only a few movies where the remake is as good as or better than the original. This one is the worst I ever have seen. I have bought this on DVD in a PAL country expecting a reissue of a former released NTSC Laserdisc containing the original movie of 1965. What I have got was a production (1997) with shallow entertainment not even amusing or funny, created loveless.
Although the original movie exists in a restored version I don't understand why it is not yet released on DVD in place of that nonsense of 1997. Therefore I share the same opinion with the reviewer who said: "buy That Darn Cat (VHS) in place of That Darn Cat (DVD)"!

It's a Disney movie aimed at kids, so they'll definetly enjoy it...I did when it first came out. Now, I watch it just for the heck of it. I still enjoy certain parts, most prominantly any scene with Doug E. Doug. I still laugh at the antics and complete lack of intelligence or even common sense on the part of the two security guards (are they security guards or cops...the movie confuses me on this point as they seem to have an office while there is a police station with police officers and everything, but security guards don't patrol, do they? My head hurts.) And of course, Peter Boyle is always fun to watch. Finally, the dog "Smokey" was also very entertaining, especially when he went after any intruders on his property. Overall, this movie is good for a few laughs as an adult. I'd reccomend it for your kids and for you only if you really feel like it. Enjoy.

While the remake version of "That Darn Cat" was pretty good, it pales in comparison to the classic original with the Siamese Cat. Instead of spending my money on this version, I will anxiously await the day when the original 1965 version of "That Darn Cat" comes to DVD !

A sad,sorry remake of the 1965 classic which contains none of its warmth and charm. Watching remakes such as this only highlights the superiority of the original and seems to elevate it even further in quality.
