YMMV: Cat City
  • Base Breaker: The sequel. Some people say that it's a legitimate continuation, equally good as the original, others consider it horrible and prefer to think it doesn't exist.
  • Cult Classic
  • Ear Worm: This song. It's also a Hurricane of Puns involving cats and Double Entendre (It was called the "Kitty song" in English? This should be translates as the "Pussy song")... yes, this movie in original Hungarian run a crap smuggling ring.
    • The "Four Gangsters" song (a cover of "Four Brothers" by Jimmy Giuffre) is also pretty catchy.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Cathy
  • Fountain of Memes: Especially the first movie has gone pretty memetic in Hungary, at least if you only look at how practucally everyone can quote certain parts. Mostly thanks to the Rats, the scenes between Teufel and Safranek, and the bats.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The movie used to be a huge VHS hit in late 80's - early 90's Russia.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Fritz Teufel.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Cathy and Samu.
  • Padding: The movie could have been much shorter without the dragging musical numbers and all the scenes of amusing banter between Teufel and his assistant, and of course the rats' tomfoolery. Though not necessarily better.
  • Sequelitis: Viewers and critis were generally disappointed with Macskafogó 2.
  • Tough Act to Follow: One reason why the sequel was poorly reviewed is the Cult Classic status of the original.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Make no mistake this movie is full of ethnic (Asian, South-American (the vampire bats), Romani (the rats) and in the sequel African) and sexist (possibly the only non sexualized/objectified female character is Cathy) stereotypes played for laughs. The only excuse it has is, well, it's Affectionate Parody of less than politically correct source material.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: Despite the big amount of violence, crap gotten past the radar, and Parental Bonus, the film was still released as a children's movie - partly thanks to the Animation Age Ghetto.
