Zoe's cat Dino leads a double life: by day he stays with Zoe and her mom, but by night he works with slinky cat burglar Nico. When Zoe decides to follow Dino one night, she falls into the hands of a blustery gangster, leaving it up to Dino and Nico to come to her rescue.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

60

The Guardian by Andrew Pulver

It's a slight, attractive tale: a childlike fable of a little girl and her preternaturally intelligent cat that swiftly devolves into a very old-school cops and robbers yarn.
60

Los Angeles Times by Betsy Sharkey

It's not your typical animated fare, but since the filmmakers can't quite decide whether its tale should be serious or silly, "Cat" trips and stumbles unsteadily between a bit of both.
50

Variety by Jordan Mintzer

Delightfully old-school on the animation side, but too old-fashioned on the story side, French 2D toon A Cat in Paris is easy enough on the eyes yet never quite justifies feature-length status.
