Cat Out of the Bag Alert!  This review contains some spoilers for this film!

Synopsis: Charlotte (Amy Stephenson) is thrilled when her cat Charlie’s video of him saying “I Love You” gets over four million hits, but after demanding him to say it over and over Charlie starts to say other not so nice things.

Featured Feline: Charlie is a gray cat (played by cat actor Lila Leslie) whose meow sounds like “I love you” (Charlie’s voice was actually provided by Nora Kelly Lester).

Charlotte’s boyfriend Jamie (Shane Langan) is as about fed up as Charlie is with Charlotte constantly asking him to “Say it, Charlie!” in a high pitched voice. Charlie says it to Charlotte but when she wants him to say it to Jamie he just hisses.

Things get even darker when Charlie starts to leave dead birds for Charlotte, trying to get his point across. Charlie’s affectionate words start to sound more like “I hate you.”
