The cats were so bad Andrew Lloyd Webber had to get a therapy dog

The musical film Cats has one thing going for it – being such a disaster that it inspired creator Andrew Lloyd Webber to get a dog. Webber was even able to use his own negative feelings about the family movie to get his pet to take a flight.

Webber composed Cats for Broadway and told Variety that after seeing his work grow into this action flick, a pet was the only viable cure. “There wasn’t really any understanding of why the music worked at all,” he says. “I saw it and I just thought, ‘Oh, my God, no.’ It was the first time in my 70 or so years on this planet that I had gone out and bought a dog. So the only good thing that comes out is my little Havanese puppy.

In his eyes, Tom Hooper’s adaptation was “bad,” and enough people agreed with him that the stress was enough to allow his new puppy to travel with him on an airplane. “I canceled and said I needed him with me at all times because I’m emotionally damaged and need to have this therapy dog,” explains Webber. “The airline responded and said, ‘Can you prove that you really need him? ‘ And I said, ‘Yeah, see what Hollywood did to my Cats musical.’ Then the approval came back with a note saying, “No doctor’s report required.”

At this point, Cats has been argued well as a cinematic translation that lacks the hallmark of the original work. Starring Taylor Swift, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, Idris Elba, and many more, the action flick developed a fascination with misguided movie fans for its, well, weird way of doing everything, to be honest.

However, some really appreciate it. Jennifer Hudson says she is “very proud” of her involvement. Maybe the story will be favorable to Hooper’s vision – we’ll need that ass cut to be sure.

Cats is available to watch as an Amazon Prime movie if you’re curious, but don’t say Andrew Lloyd Webber himself didn’t warn you. We have the best fantasy movies for a more surreal escape.
