Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Murder of a Cat is an indie comedy/whodunit about a quirky loner who's obsessed with finding his beloved pet cat's killer. Starring Fran Kranz from Cabin in the Woods and Nikki Reed of Twilight fame, the movie isn't likely on too many teens' radar. The language is strong -- "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "c--ksucker," etc. -- and the violence surprisingly heavy (characters are held at gunpoint, beaten up, chased, and, in the case of the titular cat, killed). There's also one sex scene, plus references to masturbation, voyeurism, adultery, and an older mom's affair with a cop. Expect a little smoking and drinking, too.
Hiding in a closet, Clinton sees Greta change (she's in her bra and underwear). Greta tells the police she believes he was masturbating while peeping on her (he wasn't). Clinton and Greta kiss a few times and have sex (no nudity). Clinton realizes his single mom is sleeping with someone and jokes about her "sexcapades." A man refers his affair with an employee.
A man's beloved cat is found dead, with an arrow sticking out of it. A man is shot at, gets in a car accident after being pursued, and is punched, threatened, and chased. A man angrily destroys a woman's car, smashing the windows and doors.
Strong language includes "f--k," "a--hole," "s--t," "bulls--t," "c--ksuckers," "s--t-faced phony," "d--kwad," "pervert," and more.
Encourages people to be true to themselves, even if they're labeled different or odd or geeky.
