A Cat in Paris (Une vie de chat) (2010)

Director(s): Jean-Loup Felicioli, Alain Gagnol. 70 min. Rated PG. France/Netherlands/Switzerland/Belgium. Animation.

Nominated in 2012 for a Best Animated Feature Film Oscar (lost to Rango), this has all the creativity of a visually-pleasing animation, and it's fun to watch a non-Pixar cartoon from time time. But A Cat in Paris lags in the story department, as it's just a childish game of jewel thieves and betrayals. I know cartoons were originally supposed to be for kids, but hey, even Disney and Pixar always have something in there for adults too. Maybe 2011 just wasn't a good year for animation.
