Tom and Jerry: The Movie

Tom and Jerry’s new big-screen adventure stakes new ground for the iconic characters and forces them to do the unthinkable… work together to save the day.

Jackie Brown  |  Mar 16th 2021


I spent many a Saturday of my youth watching The Tom and Jerry Show. In this adaptation of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, one of the most beloved rivalries in history continues in this live-action hybrid movie from Warner Bros. Animation Group. When Jerry moves into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” the event’s planner is desperate to get rid of him, so Tom gets the job! But the ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and maybe even the hotel itself. All while a diabolically ambitious staffer conspires against all three of them, forcing the cat-and-mouse duo to do the unthinkable: work together to save the day.

The movie isn’t just for cat (and mouse) lovers — Spike the Bulldog makes an appearance, too! Directed by Tim Story, the movie stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost and Ken Jeong, and is slated for release on Feb. 26, 2021 on HBO Max and in theaters. — Annie
