Fluffy, Funny, Disappointing, Slow, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a workshop piece with some acting highlights, interesting use of puppets in a light comedy with potential when tightened up.

Don't see it if you want a polished production - the sets are cartoon-like in keeping with the romantic comedy presentation. It is a bit long.

Banal, Slow, Fluffy, Entertaining, Romantic

Excruciating, Slow

See it if you are such a big pet person that anything related to cats and dogs will entertain you.

Don't see it if want to see good writing. The book is basic and none of the characters are likable. The set is all made of cardboard and cheap.
