I spent many of my youth’s Saturdays watching Show Tom and Jerry. In this adaptation of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, one of history’s most beloved antagonists continues to appear in this real-life hybrid from Warner Bros. When Jerry moved to New York City’s most luxurious hotel the night before the “wedding of the century,” the event planner was desperate to get rid of him, so Tom got the job! But the ensuing cat-and-mouse fight risks destroying her career, the wedding and possibly even the hotel itself. All while an insidious ambitious employee conspires against all three of them, forcing the cat-and-mouse duo to do the utopia: work together to save the day.
The movie isn’t just for cat (and mouse) lovers – Spike the Bulldog makes an appearance too! Directed by Tim Story, the film stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost, and Ken Jeong, and is scheduled to premiere February 26, 2021 on HBO Max and in theaters. – Annie
