TOM AND JERRY: THE MOVIE (Theatrical Release USA 2021)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

Tom and Jerry: The Movie—Nostalgia!—shows very well in its animation. Terrific to see the Tom and Jerry cat and mouse activity and to also be reminded of Spike the Bulldog as built into this movie’s story. The live action is problematic and detracts from the film. But it is good to see Michael Peña and the other live action characters, Patsy Ferran is an interesting actress choice for this movie. She will be looked for in other works to assess her handling of characters. The film also makes a reference to Droopy the Basset Hound which is quite welcome as another small trip down memory lane.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. It brings back memories in a very big way and entertains with its animation techniques and storyline.
