One user said: "Just got home from seeing this SPECTACULAR movie! I loved it! Francesca was an amazing cast for Victoria!"

"Okay, I saw it but now I'm questioning my cats motives. Like what's her angle? And what's her real name? Is she a Jellicle Cat? A magician? I HAVE QUESTIONS," read one post.

"OH NOOOOO. Please tell us how it is!!! Still having second thoughts about whether I should watch it or not," tweeted another fan.
