Wow, this movie was bad, almost felt sorry for the actors in it, but they got paid, so wasn't all bad.

Catwoman is one of those movies that is a total embarrassment on all counts.

A meek employee of a big cosmetics firm is murdered when she overhears incriminating evidence about a new beauty cream with gruesome side effects.... But, instead of dying she is resurrected as Catwoman and tries to bring the guilty party to justice.

Catwoman has a nonsensical story concept that is illogical to the extreme. And to make matters worse we are given a heroine who is scarcely worth rooting for.

Ever once in a while I like a bad movie as a kind of palette cleanser. I heard this was bad, but, boy, is it bad! It has a 3.3 on IMDB and a 9% on Rotten Tomatoes. There were plans to do a Catwoman movie with Michelle Pfeiffer reprising her role from "Batman Returns" and Tim Burton directing, but, alas, that never happened. One of many ridiculous things about this movie is that is makes no attempt to be faithful to the comics. She's not even Selina Kyle, she's the absurdly named Patience Philips, who like dies and gets revived by some kind of supercat. Huh? Also the plot involves toxic make-up. Seriously. Oscar winner Halle Berry wears a very impractical costume and while she looks good, her performance is laughably bad, as is villain Sharon Stone, who at least hams it up. Probably up there with the Ben Affleck "Daredevil" as the worst of the comic book movies. The character has been redeemed somewhat by "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Gotham."

"Meow!"_____ I think that Halle Berry as Catwoman, a red-lipsticked, whip-cracking, supermodel superhero, was absolutley laughable to the extreme. Yeah! She sniffed catnip, ate tuna right out of the tin and (get this!) played basketball in frickin' stilettos. (Ha! Spare me!)_____ And I ask you - Was Catwoman's story really for real? Was it? Was it really about an "evil" cosmetics company? And a bad facial cream? Was this really the best that the stupid screenwriters (there were apparently 28 of them) could come up with for this $100 million production?_____ Catwoman's nonsensical story concept (that was illogical to the max) did only one thing - It set up impossible relationships and gave us a heroine who was scarcely worth rooting for._____ And, finally - Sharon Stone, as Laurel Hedare, stunk worse than a skunk. Even while parodying herself as the lethal wife of a cosmetics manufacturer, Stone managed, quite convincingly, to be as insufferably dull as you could possibly imagine._____ I think that Catwoman so rightly deserves every single bit of negative criticism that it gets._____ "Meow!"

What a silly movie. Other reviewers are being kind.

No aspect of Catwoman is well-done. Everything is simply horrendous. I don't want to say anymore because I would be here all day writing and this review would become awfully redundant.
