Pros:Fun cat and mouse chasing, hitting and missing, fun, enjoyable

Cons:some might say it's too violent for children due to hitting, chasing and such

The Bottom Line: Good Tom and Jerry movie, fun with the constant chasing we've come to expect in a movie length show


Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

This is what is claimed to be a 62 minute “full-length” movie. For Tom and Jerry fans everywhere, it’s not the standard two to four minute cartoon where they chase each other and it’s done. It’s a long version of the Tom and Jerry cat and mouse game where Tom’s eternally chasing Jerry.

This one has a different spin to it though, in that they do create a story line. But, knowing Tom and Jerry really don’t speak, it’s just facial reactions, chasing and escaping, you basically know what’s going to happen.

General Movie (DVD) Features

The movie has some extra items on the DVD. A small list of these follow:

Special Features
2 Vintage Tom and Jerry Cartoons
A some of the behind-the-scenes documentaries like a lot of DVD movies today have.

There are a few more, but I won’t bore you by listing them all here.

Basic Movie Story

Essentially, Tom lives with a sorcerer and is entrusted to care for the magic ring while the sorcerer travels. Jerry inadvertently gets the ring stuck on his head like a crown and travels everywhere trying to get it off his head, while Tom’s tracking him down trying to get the ring back.

Tom knows he will be in deep trouble if that ring is damaged or disappears, and he tries everything to get it back. In one section, Tom notices that Jerry is heading to a jeweler to try to get the ring off and Tom sneaks in before him and poses as a jewelry shop owner.

Of course, a path of destruction follows these two wherever they go, as they are constantly going after each other. The movie follows this same tried and true “cat and mouse” routine and makes a decent movie out of it, for two main characters that don’t speak.

Cons

There is the basic chasing and hitting scenes whenever you have these two going after each other. Of course, Tom and Jerry movies almost always seem to have bad things happen like getting run over by a car and getting hit very hard with a bat and such. Some might say this is promoting violence with our little ones.

So, if you feel these types of cartoons are too violent, you will not like this movie, as it’s the same tried and true recipe for cat chasing mouse that you have come to expect with Tom and Jerry cartoons. Only, this is a movie lasting over barely over one hour rather than short cartoons.

Overall

My daughter truly enjoys watching their silliness and giggles and has a blast with the Tom and Jerry movies. I am excited watching her enjoy them as I enjoyed the cartoons when I was young. It’s a good time watching the movie, giggling and watching her enjoy the movies. She has asked to watch the movie time and again, so I know it captivated her attention.

~Thanks for spending time with me today!~
