Tom and Jerry movie review - Aussieboyreviews


Being a kids’ movie, there’s lots of slapstick fighting and dumb potty jokes. Although this family comedy may be hilarious to toddlers, most will just find Tom and Jerry a silly and pointless reboot.


Kayla, a hotel worker responsible for organising the wedding of a wealthy couple in the luxurious hotel, finds trouble when the battle between Jerry the mouse and Tom the cat causes chaos in the hotel.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Tom and Jerry would be so much better without Tom and Jerry. In this pointless reboot, the pesky animal characters blend terribly with the childish disasters and dumb slapstick humour. The whole story is unrelieved, bland and completely unfunny.

It all starts with the animals. In Tom and Jerry, each and every animal is animated. The animated animal characters are honestly a pretty good mix with the live-action, but it’s entirely ruined by how pesky the animal characters are. Seriously, they’re such pests and only toddlers or really big Tom and Jerry fans will find them amusing.

Although the animated animal characters are nicely combined with the live-action, they completely ruin the story. The story with the actual human characters is really decent but it’s ruined by Tom and Jerry. The merge is totally stupid and that’s what makes this family comedy a needless waste of your time. Even young kids may not stay interested and will be waiting for the slapstick scenes and entertainment between Tom and Jerry.

It would probably be better for kids to watch the trailer and a few of the clips in the movie so they’ll decide whether it looks worth while. But even after that, they only show the good parts in the clips and end up getting you to waste your time, money and energy on a dumb family comedy feature like Tom and Jerry.
