Cats Don’t DanceTatiana Ayazo/ Rd.com, Shutterstock
Cats can dream too! An overly energetic cat named Danny dreams of seeing his names in lights and moves to Hollywood in the 1930s to break out onto the scene. The only problem is, in Tinseltown, animals don’t get starring roles. As he tries to push him and his new friends into the spotlight, he becomes the target of child starlet Darla Dimple who makes it her job to undermine their careers. But with a little faith and just the right amount of luck, they’re able to have their day in the sun. This movie is saturated with fantastic musical numbers and will have you singing long after the movie is over, thanks to musical talent of Randy Newman, Natalie Cole, and Scott Bakula. These movies are also known for their rocking soundtracks.
