MEOW! These humans of mine seems to always watch movies, but none of them ever seem to catch my eye. I would rather take a cat nap myself usually. It was different this weekend though. My humans were acting a bit crazier than usual, and I did not know that there was going to be some fun for my brother and I too. So my dad who calls himself the Dad of Divas told me that this movie was about a guy who gets turned into a cat to right some wrongs. Sounds like something all humans would learn from, especially my humans.
My humans always think we have it so easy, but it is not that easy to be a cat!
About Nine Lives
Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game. His eponymous company FireBrand is nearing completion on its greatest achievement to date – the tallest skyscraper in the northern hemisphere. But Tom’s workaholic lifestyle has disconnected him from his family, particularly his beautiful wife Lara (Jennifer Garner) and his adoring daughter Rebecca (Malina Weissman).
Rebecca’s 11th birthday is here, and she wants the gift she wants every year, a cat. Tom hates cats, but he is without a gift and time is running out. His GPS directs him to a mystical pet store brimming with odd and exotic cats- where the store’s eccentric owner- Felix Perkins (Christopher Walken), presents him with a majestic tomcat, named Mr. Fuzzypants.
En route to present his daughter with her dream pet, a bizarre turn of events finds Tom trapped inside the body of Mr. Fuzzypants. Adopted by his own family, he begins to experience what life is truly like for the family pet, and as a cat, Tom begins to see his family and his life through a new and unexpected perspective. Meanwhile, his family adjusts to life with an odd and stubborn cat, and his son David (Robbie Amell), steps up in ways Tom never expected.
If any hope exists of returning to his family as the husband and father they deserve, Tom will have to learn why he has been placed in this peculiar situation and the great lengths he must go to earn back his human existence.
Peppers’ Thoughts on the Film
As I said I usually fall asleep during movies, but this was a fun one. I loved seeing the cats ruling the roost in this movie and as I said, that guy learned his lesson by walking a few steps in a cats’ pawprints. It was not just me, but my sister and brother and even my humans seemed to like the film too. They were laughing and had smiles on their faces throughout the movie which I guess is a good sign. I tend to be a action freak and this movie delivered. I loved all of the action and even though there were some dogs (BOO) in the film. I give the film two paws up! Watch this with your family for a great night together!
