Cat Person [short story] + Cat Person [movie]

 Cat Person [short story] + Cat Person [movie]

THE 2017 SHORT STORY 'CAT PERSON' IS A VERY SMALL SCALE LITTLE 3 PAGE LONG STORY OF A YOUNG WOMAN GOING ON A DATE WITH A MAN, THE MAN BEING A PATHETIC LOSER, THE WOMAN REJECTING HIM AND HIM CALLING HER A WHORE. IT'S VERY GROUNDED STORY. THE MAN IS NOT WRITTEN AS A HORRIBLE PREDATOR OR SUPER EVIL, THE WOMAN DUMPS HIM BY HAVING HER ROOM MATE WRITE A TEXT THAT IS MUCH MEANER THAN NEEDED AND HIS REACTION TO RUNNING INTO HER IS THE REALISTIC SORT OF AGGRESSIVE MEN TURN TOWARDS WOMEN WITHOUT BEING RIDICULOUS OR OVER THE TOP. 

THEY MADE A MOVIE OUT OF IT. THE FIRST TWO THIRDS ARE JUST ABOUT THE SAME STORY, THEY MAKE HIM MUCH DORKIER SO HE COMES OFF AS KINDA AUTISTIC AND IT INTRODUCES A LOT OF THE CONCEPT OF HER HAVING LITTLE FAMILY GUY CUT AWAYS SHOWING HER BEING AFRAID OF HIM AS A WOMAN ALONE WITH A STRANGE MAN. THAT CHANGES IT UP SOME, BUT THAT IS AN EXTREMELY REASONABLE ADAPTATION. BUT THEN THE THIRD ACT JUST GOES ABSOLUTELY OFF THE RAILS AND SHE IS LIKE, BREAKING INTO HIS HOUSE AND THEY ARE HAVING A FIST FIGHT IN A BURNING BUILDING AND HE'S MASTERMINDED THE WHOLE THING BY PLANTING STRAY DOGS FOR HER TO FIND AND IT'S ABSOLUTELY MENTAL.  ALSO I GUESS THE CATS JUST DIE. IT FEELS WEIRD THE MOVIE EVEN BOTHERED TO ESTABLISH FIRMLY THERE EVEN WAS CATS. 

PS. I WATCHED AND READ THIS AFTER LISTENING TO A COMPLETE SCENE BY SCENE SUMMARY ON FLOPHOUSE, I DID THAT SO I CAN WATCH MEGAMIND 2 NEXT THEN MAKE THE JOKE THAT THIS MOVIE WAS MEGAMIND 2 AND THAT FEELS LIKE A PERCEPTIVE CLAIM THAT IS ALSO A JOKE NO ONE ON EARTH WILL GET AND IS NOT WORTH WATCHING 2 MOVIES WITH ADDITIONAL READING TO JUSTIFY MAKING.
