The friendship between the chronic failures Wayne Lefessier ( Steve Zahn ) and JD McNugent ( Jack Black ) and Darren Silverman ( Jason Biggs ), which has existed since school days, threatens to break down as Darren's new friend, the dominant psychologist Judith ( Amanda Peet ), more and more over to determine his life begins. Among other things, she ensures that Darren gets out of the shared Neil Diamond cover band of friends.

When Wayne and JD learn that Darren has become engaged to Judith, they kidnap the young woman and try to reunite Darren with his high school friend Sandy ( Amanda Detmer ), who is about to enter a convent . All sorts of chaotic entanglements arise, so that the plan threatens to fail. As a deus ex machina , Neil Diamond finally helps ensure that there is still a happy ending . In the final scene, the singer asks his new friends on stage during a live concert and sings one of his songs, Holly Holy, with them.

Neil Diamond fans enjoyed the humorous guest appearances of their star, who had been rather quiet in previous years. Otherwise, cat terror received mostly mediocre to bad reviews. Above all, the flat and sometimes rough humor of the comedy was criticized.

“Shy comedy that hides its sexually reactionary attitude with tasteless jokes. Executed by an ensemble of untalented filmmakers in front of and behind the camera, the unbelievable story fizzles out into sheer boredom. "
