“u0026quot;That Darn Catu0026quot; is a makeover of the Disney film with Haley Mills. This time around, the world is darker, the main character is darker…and the cat is darker.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eChristina (u0026quot;Addams Family,u0026quot; u0026quot;Sleepy Hollowu0026quot;) Ricci is the main character for our story. Sheu0026#39;s a psychopathic, Gothic creature with black all around. She moves to a new town, finds a new cat, finds a new mystery, and solves it (I wasnu0026#39;t expecting that). Along the way is Thomas F. Wilson, better known as Biff from u0026quot;Back to the Future,u0026quot; and Michael McKean–who does a bunch of nothing considering how funny the guy usually is.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;That Darn Catu0026quot; fails on a lot of levels. Itu0026#39;s watchable, and probably should be seen once on TV, but I wouldnu0026#39;t go out of your way to see it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eChristina Ricci is fine as the title character; but I found that the whole moody, Gothic thing was a bit overdone–whether it was on the script like that or not, it was overbearing. They kept stressing to the audience, u0026quot;This girl is dark,u0026quot; but I think I got it the first time.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDean Jones, from the original u0026quot;That Darn Cat,u0026quot; makes a few cameos in this flick. Whatever happened to him? The last I remember him in a film without being a cameo was u0026quot;Beethovenu0026quot;…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThomas F. Wilson does seem to prove he can act out characters other than Biff, Griff and Buford Tannen, but if I were him I wouldnu0026#39;t quit the day job just yet–a film like this isnu0026#39;t going to get him back in the acting arena.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe filmu0026#39;s gags donu0026#39;t exactly work all the time. Sometimes they work a little bit, but on the whole, this film is a pretty big mess that should only be seen on television when nothing good is on. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e2/5 stars -u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJohn Ulmeru003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eP.S.–Be on the lookout for cameos galore, including u0026quot;Cheersu0026quot; man John Ratzenburger.”
