I would like to take my girlfriend to see this film but she is very sensitive about animals (especially cats) so if anything bad happens to the cat in this film then it would probably be best to avoid it. No need for details or spoilers, just let me know if there is any cat-related jeopardy.

    @PaulR - As you well know, StackExchange sites have some strict rules on what constitutes a good question. Questions that can be answered with a bit of Googling or watching the actual film fall under the category of being too trivial. Thus the vote to close. Jan 10, 2014 at 18:16

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is very subjective and given that PETA and Animal Society is always required on set to certify cruelty free production, any harm is simulated not real. So is the concern about REAL harm, which wouldn't happen, or simulated is unacceptable too? This pretty much answers itself. Jan 10, 2014 at 18:17

    @ChristianRau - I'm not sure this fits that. That is about phobias, this is a "I don't like this". Otherwise we'll get questions such as "I'm a Southern Baptist tee-totaler, do they drink at all in movie X?" and similar personal prejudice questions. Phobias are medical conditions that could potentially provoke quite strong physical and mental reactions that could ruin other moviegoers' experience.

    @JohnP I don't like the question too much either, but I still think it's enough of a grey area to be at least very interesting for that meta discussion and vice versa (be it only just as a negative example).

    @JohnP The meta question itself is certainly not just about phobias alone, even if the resulting policy (which isn't yet completely existing) might become to be.

Implied, but not seen. That's as detail free an answer as they come!

The definitive answer you are loking for would be a spoiler to the film, as the cat's fate is a sub plot of the movie.

  • Thanks - it sounds like I might be able to take a chance on this one then, although I will hold you personally responsible if my GF is upset by it. ;-)

    I can live with that! Its a great film though, so I wouldn't expect you both to be anything other than impressed. Jan 10, 2014 at 16:56
  • Thanks - certainly looks very good from the trailers and reviews that I've seen.
