Tom & Jerry The Movie revives a cartoon classic. Originally created 80 years ago, as cinema shorts to amuse patrons before the main feature, these cartoons gained a second life when they became a TV staple in the second half of the 20th Century.

The legendary rivalry reemerges when Jerry moves into New York City's finest hotel on the eve of the wedding of the century, forcing the event’s planner, Kayla (Chloë Grace Moretz), to hire Tom to get rid of him. As mayhem ensues, the escalating battle soon threatens to destroy her career, the wedding, and possibly the hotel itself.

This is Moretz’s film, though she’s ably assisted by the real life likes of Michael Peña and Rob Delaney. For the more mature fans of the cartoon, it offers an opportunity to introduce younger generations to Tom and Jerry. Offering an enjoyable family experience, and potentially encouraging today's kids to seek out the classic cartoons.
