Andrew Lloyd Webber was not a fan of the movie “Cats”.
In an interview with varietyWebber, the original composer of the “Cat” stage production, said the move was “everything wrong.”
“I didn’t really understand why music was ticking,” Webber said. “I just saw it and thought,’Oh, God, no.'”
Webber said the film made him do something he had never done before.
“It was the first time in more than 70 years on this planet that I went out and bought a dog,” Webber said. “So one of the good things that comes out of it is my little Havanese puppy.”
The 2019 film featured an all-star cast that included Oscar winners Judi Dench and Jennifer Hudson, Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift, and talk show host James Corden.
Critics panned the movie.
“For some stars, nine may not be enough to survive the involvement of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical in this poorly devised and implemented adaptation.” Peter de Bruges Written for variety.
The film reportedly earned $ 75 million at the box office. That’s about $ 25 million in budget.
