Catwoman: Nothing to mew about!

July 23, 2004 20:15 IST

CatwomanHalle Berry should run for cover!

Her new film Catwoman, which opened today in the US, has been shredded by critics, according to People magazine.

A O Scott of The New York Times writes that watching Catwoman 'is like paging through a fat European fashion magazine at high speed in the lobby of a sleek hotel'.

If it's some consolation for the Oscar-winning Berry, Scott adds that she and co-star Benjamin Bratt 'are nice to look at'. (An aside: Nicole Kidman was the original choice for Berry's role.)

The New York Daily News doesn't beat around the bush. The headline says it all: Bad kitty!

The New York Post isn't far behind either. Its review dubs the film 'purr-fectly ridiculous and boring'.

Evidently, this cat can't mew!
