Few purrs as critics claw ‘Cats’

‘Cats’ star Jason Derulo has responded to the negative reception the movie has received from critics ahead of its release in cinemas.

Tom Hooper’s big-screen adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s original musical hasn’t fared well with critics. One went as far as to call it “a mesmerisingly ugly fiasco that makes you feel like your brain is being eaten by a parasite.”

In a three-star review, NME‘s Nick Reilly said of ‘Cat’s: “All things considered though, Cats does well to avoid a second mauling at the hands of the Internet meme mob. It might not be for everyone, but leave your cynicism at the door and you’ll find that there’s unexpected fun to be had here – despite the weirdness.”

Rushing to the defence of the movie, Jason Derulo, who plays Rum Tug Tugger, called the re-imagining an “incredible, brave piece of art.”

Speaking to TMZ, Derulo said that “reviews don’t matter” and that “people are going to see it” anyway. NME
