Critic Reviews for Rats and Cats
A hip comedy, and as such, being hip and caustic is sometimes more important than being funny.
Rats and Cats is an excellent example of independent Australian film and deserves to be seen; with a little more care in the development of the story it might have been outstanding.
Rats and Cats is a sort-of comedy, very laid-back and meandering, and it's mostly content to explore life in this little town and some of its inhabitants.
It has all the cringe-making laughs one might expect from a comedy of celebrity, but Rats And Cats also achieves a surprising subtlety by approaching its larger-than-life protagonist in disarmingly low-key fashion.
Not a lot happens in it really. But it's the way it doesn't happen that counts.
Audience Reviews for Rats and Cats
This was definitely a "sort-of-comedy" - one that relied on humorous observations rather than outright jokes (which doesn't exactly do it for me). Since some of the comedic dialogue was underscored with dramatic music, I didn't even know what to feel sometimes. The film also lacked somewhat in the story department - it was pretty laid-back, and while this seemed to work initially, the absence of any stronger narrative progression eventually left me bored. For me, Paul Denny (the spitting image of a young Dennis Hopper) was the stand-out performer.
