Although there are strong performances given by the cast, the plot of two people — or animals, in this case — coming together to stop something is unoriginal, and has been seen in the past.

In Tom and Jerry: The Movie, a legendary animated rivalry resurfaces when Jerry moves into a hotel in New York City the night before a huge wedding, which forces an event planner to hire Tom to get rid of Jerry.

This setup allows Kayla, played by Chloe Grace Moretz, to attempt to prove herself at the hotel by making the wedding a success and by getting rid of Jerry. She hires Tom to help her get rid of Jerry, which is where the rivalry resurfaces.

This film is a family-friendly comedy, with many action scenes throughout the film as well. However, there are certainly some flaws as well.

Although there are strong performances given by the cast, the plot of two people — or animals, in this case — coming together to stop something is unoriginal and has been seen in the past.

There are also some aspects of the movie that simply just don’t make sense. For example, some animals are capable of talking, while others are not.

So although Tom and Jerry: The Movie certainly isn’t better than the original TV cartoons, it still proves to be entertaining and enjoyable for the audience.
