Netflix Users Threaten to Cancel Membership after Adding ‘Worst Film Ever Made’

Netflix subscribers are expressing their dismay after the 2019 film “Cats” was added to the streaming service’s lineup. The movie, an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famous musical, boasts a star-studded cast including Taylor Swift, James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, and Rebel Wilson, with ballet dancer Francesca Hayward making her on-screen debut in a central role.

Despite its high-profile cast and the direction of Tom Hooper, “Cats” has been widely criticized, both by viewers and critics, with many labeling it as the ‘worst film ever.’ It holds a meager 19 percent critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, earning it the label ‘certified rotten.’

Critics have been vocal about their opinions of the film. Antony Lane from The New Yorker commented on the awkward blend of animal and human characteristics in the characters, calling the plot unconvincing. Dallas King of Flick Feast described the film as a “cat-astrophe,” while Daniel Howat from Next Best Picture referred to it as either an “ambitious misfire” or “straight-up nightmare fuel.”

However, not all reviews were entirely negative. Richard Brody of The New Yorker found the film to be “pretty good,” and Stephen Romei of The Australian praised the performances and songs, though he critiqued the story’s strength.

Upon the film’s release on Netflix, many subscribers voiced their opinions on social media. One humorously threatened to cancel their subscription, while another deemed it the “worst movie of all time.” A third commenter joked about being relieved that Netflix had stopped password sharing.

“Cats” is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
