Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Miss Minoes (Undercover Kitty) is a well-done, clever, animal-friendly tale of good and evil told with wit, humor, and antics galore. Based on the Dutch film, which drew from the children's book of the same name, this stylish movie about feline-assisted sleuthing is overdubbed in (British) English, but hardly suffers in the process.

Kids may not be riveted by the tale of a town scandal or the ethics of newspaper reporters, but they will likely enjoy the cat- and neighbor-driven plots, as well as Miss Minoes' comical struggle to curb the cat inside her and act like a real lady, or at least pass as human. Parents will find the jazzy soundtrack and noirish, stylized romp enjoyable.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
