This movie is a little simplistic and more for little kids, very cute though. It's about a cat who turns into a woman and then must solve mysteries with the help of a reporter.

Not just a kiddie movie!

"This unusual romantic comedy romp, which is also known as "Miaou/Minoes", is a FUN movie! Fans of "Bringing Up Baby" (Cary Grant/Katharine Hepburn) would probably enjoy this. It has an adorable female lead- the bewildered cat-that-has-become-a-human, artfully acted by Carice van Houten in a most fascinatingly feline way; a bumbling yet romantic male lead- the hapless reporter (played by Theo Maassen), blinded by his own sudden success, who doesn't recognize the treasure he's got until he almost loses her; his cute little girl neighbor- a truly refreshingly sympathetic child character rather than a syrupy-sweet or obnoxious one; a crusade against a sneaky two-faced comic-book-style villain who is abusive to animals- complete with a walloping defeat of the baddie that is bravely and satisfyingly accomplished by the innocents themselves; hilarious dialogue coming from the moving mouths of real cats with funny yet somehow almost believable action; never a dull moment, with a tremendously happy ending! It's light but engaging, full of action and offbeat comedy, and NOT a kiddie movie- my husband and I love it! The quality of the cinematography is not the best, and it has a definite "filmed in Dutch and dubbed in English" feel, but don't let that deter you from enjoying this somewhat zany romantic comedy."
Very Sweet Film.

"I first saw this at the National Film Theatre in London, and it was screened with subtitles. I've been trying to find it on DVD in the original Dutch ever since, and I was very reluctant to buy a dubbed version.
However, I finally gave in and bought this because it is such a sweet little film that I really wanted to see again. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the dubbing is very sympathetic to the original, for example, none of the names have been changed (my two cats were a whisker away from being called Minoos and Jakkeposse) and at least they all have European accents!
The only thing I would say is that the American title "Undercover Kitty" is awful, what's wrong with just sticking with the main character's name Minoos?"
