    Cool Cat Saves the Kids

    *no spoilers*
    I feel cruel for giving an educational film for children a half-star rating, but calling this educational is quite a stretch. It's message, stand up to bullying. How do you do that exactly? I don't know, the film doesn't bother with that. It simply says that you should stand up to bullies for around 2 minutes, followed by an hour of why Cool Cat is (in the film's words) 'so cool.'
