Murder of a Cat

2014 dark comedy/mystery

Rating: 8/20

Plot: A loser's best friend, a cat named Mouser, ends up murdered, and after the police don't seem to care, he decides to solve the case on his own.

This was as quirky as I expected, but it just didn't work on any level. The mystery wasn't intriguing, the comedy didn't work, and the lead performance by some guy named Fran Kranz was obnoxious. The best part of the movie is probably the above poster which satirizes the artwork for Anatomy of a Murder.

J.K. Simmons, a guy who will seemingly take any role offered to him, plays a sheriff in this. Greg Kinnear is also in there.

I wish I wouldn't have watched this, but I did and there's nothing that can be done.
