About the Movie
Produced by Sam Raimi, Nikki Reed, Greg Kinnear, and Fran Kranz star in this offbeat detective comedy. When someone murders his beloved cat, Clinton (Kranz), an adult child, demands justice. Taking it upon himself to solve the case, he teams up with an unlikely ally, Greta (Reed), and the two set out to find the culprit lurking in their small suburban town. But as Clinton searches for the truth, he begins to uncover a conspiracy that goes far deeper than he anticipated.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A dead pet isn't the only inert element of "Murder of a Cat," a plodding comic caper that fails to deliver.
Rotten: Despite the presence of actors like Simmons, Greg Kinnear and Blythe Danner, this trying-too-hard comedy is as annoying as chasing a ball at the end of a bouncy string.
Rotten: I saw it with three people. One walked out. The second stayed to the bitter end because Blythe Danner and Greg Kinnear were in it. You needn't bother.
Rotten: Swing a dead cat here and you'll hit a piece of limp dialogue.
Saw it at Tribeca
I saw this film at the Tribeca Film Fest this year and I LOVED it!!! Always been a fan of JK Simmons and he great in this! This would be a great film for the whole family to watch—quirky, engaging, and a lot of fun!
Murder of a Cat

saw it at Tribeca
Horrible - Read a Real Review
Easily among the most awful movies I have ever seen. It's like trying to watch a community playhouse production where one good actor is trying to carry the whole event. But Simmons' part isn't significant enough to pull it off.
I like indie films and love cats, but there is nothing redeeming about the steaming pile. I want my 90 minutes back.
What's with the Tribeca 5-star reviews? Is part of a film festival persuading attendees to post mindless BS? I noticed neither of the two visible reviews actually mention anything about the film, they only mention seeing it at Tribeca and 'loving' it.
