Today’s film is a somewhat infamous one. It has notoriously received negative reviews and was was one of only three films that the renowned film critic, Gene Siskel, walked out of in his professional career!

So naturally I had to check this film out! And after getting a request to do so from a reader, Jon H, I felt the time was right! Do I agree with Gene Siskel on this film? Or do I find this to be an underrated comedy? Read on to find out!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

That Darn Cat! (1965)

Directed by Robert Stevenson, That Darn Cat! proves to be an interesting entry in the live-action Disney films lineup. It was Disney star Hayley Mills’ last of six films she made for Disney (not counting future TV sequels) as well as future Disney star Dean Jones’ first of ten films he would make for Disney (again not counting cameo appearances in future remakes). But is that the only thing the film should be noted for or is it actually worth remembering for its quality? Let’s take a look at That Darn Cat!!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

On September 1, 2015, actor Dean Jones passed away at the age of 84. Disney fans were quite saddened by this as the lovable actor with “boyish good looks” was a staple in many live-action Disney films acting in 10 total!

He's probably the actor who's acted in the most Disney films. Could somebody verify that for me, please?

To pay tribute to the man, I thought it appropriate to review one of his films. I’ve already reviewed one of his films on this blog already, The Love Bug. This time, I’m reviewing The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit.

The Google never seems to fail us!

Even Walt Disney got us into the self-driving car rage with a series of films based on a Volkswagen Beetle named Herbie. This franchise consisted of four theatrically released films and one theatrically released reboot was a great success! Today, we are reviewing the first film in the series, “The Love Bug”
