Synopsis: A shy woman, endowed with the speed, reflexes, and senses of a cat, walks a thin line between criminal and hero, even as a detective doggedly pursues her, fascinated by both of her personas. (For some reason.)

Reaction: Terrible movie. I can't even begin to care enough to count the number of ways this one failed.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • A newspaper reported that Sharon Stone's cell phone rang in the middle of filming a scene and Stone took the call, holding up filming for a time.
  • After reading the screenplay, director Pitof and [?] Jean Rabasse presented to the producers an alternative version of the story that was refused using the argument that it was too artistic.
  • A picture of Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman from Batman Returns can be seen in the pile of old catwomen pictures.
  • A rough cut of the trailer was put online a few months before the film's release, and drew such heavy criticism that it was quickly pulled. It was soon replaced with a new trailer which didn't feature any dialogue.
  • Halle Berry accepted the Golden Raspberry Award (Razzie) as "Worst Actress of 2004" she 'won' for this film herself.
  • According to Alex Green, the whip master, Halle Berry needed a week of 90-minute practice sessions before she was able to successfully crack a whip.
  • The monologue delivered by Berry in the preview is taken from the movie The Crow with minor editing to fit the movie (e.g. "crow" to "cat").
  • The movie had to undergo re-shoots after testing poorly with screeners, with only a month left before the theatrical release date.
  • Ashley Judd was, at one time, slated for the lead role. Josh Lucas was offered the role of Detective Tom Lone, but turned it down. Frances McDormand was once in talks for a role. The role of Ophelia Powers was originally offered to Julie Newmar. And Michelle Pfeiffer had low opinions of the costume's comfort level from Batman Returns and consequently declined reprising the role.
  • During the restaurant sequence with Benjamin Bratt, the sushi being gorged by Halle Berry was actually chunks of fruit molded to look like raw fish.
