Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats is a 1998 made-for-television film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical that is based on T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. It was produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber (who, BTW, also did the music) & Gary Lucchesi, directed by David Mallet, & stars Bryn Walters (Macavity the Mystery Cat), Jacob Brent (Mr. Mistoffelees), Drew Varley (Mungojerrie), Jo Gibb (Rumpleteazer; spelled Rumpelteazer by T. S. Eliot), John Partridge (The Rum Tum Tugger), & Elaine Paige (Grizabella). This film hasn't really been rated, but I will tell you this: Macavity is THE scariest cat in the entire movie, so it would probably earn a PG rating! I would give this movie 100% of a star.
