Musical: A number of anthropomorphic cats compete to see who will be granted a new feline life.
In London there exists a tribe of anthropomorphic cats known as Jellicles that possess both feline and human characteristics, including the ability to speak. Once a year they get together where one such cat is chosen to ascend to the Heaviside Layer and return as a new feline. New to observe all of this is outsider cat Victoria (FRANCESCA HAYWARD) who's unceremoniously dumped among the Jellicles, with one of them, Munkustrap (ROBBIE FAIRCHILD), deciding to introduce her to the rest.

There's lazy housecat Jennyanydots (REBEL WILSON) who's taught mice, cockroaches and more to perform song and dance numbers for her, while fat cat Bustopher Jones (JAMES CORDEN) enjoys raiding the local trash cans for a feast. Rum Tum Tugger (JASON DERULO) is the most flamboyant of the bunch, even more so than magician cat Mr. Mistoffelees (LAURIE DAVIDSON), while Rumpleteazer (NAOIMH MORGAN) and Mungojerrie (DANNY COLLINS) are cat burglars and Gus The Theatre Cat (IAN McKELLEN) is, natch, the feline that inhabits the local theater.

It's there that the old and wise Jellicle leader, Old Deuteronomy (JUDI DENCH), will select the cat to make the ascension to a new life. While everyone gets their one song and dance number in the competition, Victoria thinks it should be the once glamorous but now outcast Grizabella (JENNIFER HUDSON) who fell out of favor with the rest for siding in the past with the criminal Macavity (IDRIS ELBA). He's intent on winning the competition, and with the help of Bombalurina (TAYLOR SWIFT) and barge cat Growltiger (RAY WINSTONE) he begins cat-napping the various competitors to ensure he's the one chosen.

Those who like the stage musical will likely want to see it, while the presence of Taylor Swift might draw in some of her fans.
For some rude and suggestive humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
