It’s time for Rifftrax! Another cold and dark winter evening put to rest while I worked on a craft project and laughed in some delight of a movie which is not ashamed to admit that some scenes were shot in the director’s garage and swimming pool. The more of these I watch the more I delight in the ability for people to just go out there and make movies. To create stories to share with others. Even if they’re not always very good stories, or very well told.
This delightful outing brings us a cat (the movie poster is technically 100% true although I would argue the cat on the poster is not the main star of the cat based plot) that inside it has another smaller and much more evil cat. Sometimes the smaller and much more evil cat gets out, and is poisonous. Both cats go on a lovely ocean jaunt with a very dodgy set of businessmen, two young women they picked up on Spring Break at a random hotel, and three young men that the two young women picked up at the marina. Oh, and the young female captain of the ship. Boat. Yacht. Floaty thing.
It’s very jolly and it’s much better than many other movies I’ve watched before. For a start, it’s not nearly as grim as The Crimes of Grindelwald, despite the smaller evil cat, the murdering businessmen, the manipulative nature of many of the young adults, and the attempted sexual assault scene. I just thought I’d mention that, as it’s been some time, but that movie is actually the worst and by comparison this one is hardly awful at all.
