Allow A Stoned Seth Rogen Watching ‘Cats’ For The First Time To Take Your Mind Off Things

Seth Rogen / Cats

Seth Rogen has a great laugh. I can hear it in my head right now and it’s making me giggle, which is why I’m having a ripper time reading through his live-tweets about watching Cats for the first time, stoned.

Cats, the movie that even furries do not like, spectacularly bombed in every way possible last year. Despite its impressive crew and ginormous cast, the film… it did not do well. P.TV’s own Alasdair Duncan called Cats a “horror movie”.

I have yet to watch Cats, I’m saving it for a particularly shite day in the future or when quarantine finally claims my mind. That way, I might actually enjoy it. But for now, I’ll continue vicariously watching it through other people. Let us begin.

“Also the scale is bizarre,” he continued on Twitter. “The behind the scenes features, which are amazing, said the set is 2.5 times scale but that would mean cats are like 60 pounds in real life!”

“They made them go to cat school.”

“The mice!?!?!?!?!?!!?”

“These cats are like 2 feet tall in this world. That’s a huge fucking cat.”

I’m cackling.

“‘Let’s make 35 nonsense songs introducing cats!’ – The makers of cats.”

“They move so funny.”

“Jason Derulo’s feet don’t look like they’re touching the ground.”


“Their tales are dancing.”

“CG cat people dancing is odd. Is it impressive? I don’t know!”

“These cats are straight up wearing white chuck taylors!!!”

“Did they commission little chucks from the cat shoe maker?”

“A lot of neon lights at knee height in London in the 30’s.”

“Is the milk bar for humans??! For cats? Is this in Clockwork Orange world?”

“Judi Dench looks the most cuddly.”

“Is magic cat a thing?”

I’m going to leave it there, because as much as I want to spend the next hour and a half reading Rogen’s descent into madness, I still have two hours on the clock. But you can continue on this delicious adventure by clicking on any of the tweets and scrolling down the thread.

I lied, two more:

In other news, Cats won big at this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards. If you’re unfamiliar with this utterly unique night of film, the Razzies celebrate the worst of the worst. Cats won worst picture, supporting actor (James Corden), supporting actress (Rebel Wilson), screen combo (Any Two Half-Feline / Half Human Hairballs), screenplay (Lee Hall, Tom Hooper), and worst director (Tom Hooper). Jason Derulo and “his CGI-Neutered ‘Bulge’” were also nominated for worst screen combo.

You can buy Cats, if you really want to, on Amazon Prime Video right here.
