Dear oh dear oh dear- good idea, badly executed.
I love anything to do with Tom and Jerry. I was disappointed with Tom and Jerry: The Movie, but I found both Shiver Me Whiskers and The Magic Ring surprisingly good. Sadly, the Fast and the Furry, out of the Tom and Jerry movies, is for me the worst, and I will explain why. I liked the idea of Tom and Jerry travelling across the world to find a new mansion, and I will say the movie starts off well. For me, there was very little other than the title, that made it Tom and Jerry, there was little of the comic violence that made the TV show a childhood favourite of mine. The plot, like another reviewer said, was highly suggestive of Tom and Jerry meets Wacky Races, and none of the supporting characters I found particularly likable. I wasn't too impressed with the flat animation, and the forgettable incidental music either. What disappointed me most, was that the film just wasn't funny. In fact, Tom and Jerry themselves were the only redeeming qualities to this dreck. 2/10 Bethany Cox
