An all-star cast, a collection of cats, whats not to love? Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner, and Christopher Walken star in this purr-fect family comedy. Nine Lives is sure to make a cat-lover out of everyone as you and your family enjoy all of Mr. FuzzyPants’ hijinks! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has let this cat out of the bag, Nine lives is available now on Digital HD, on Blu-ray & DVD!
We recently received a blu-ray copy of Nine Lives, along with some fun items to plan a fun feline-inspired family movie night. Already a fan of the movie, we knew this was going to be a good time. So we set aside an evening just for the kitties and our kiddie.
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.
Our evening was so much fun. Our cats Raphael and Harley were treated to new toys, collars, dishes, and they loved every minute of it. Then we all snuggled in to watch the movie. If you are looking for our thoughts on the movie, you can find them in a previous post here. I also had the pleasure of interviewing Jennifer Gardner on Nine Lives, you can read that post here.
Today I am turning the review over to one of our cats, Rapheal
Raphael here, I found Nine Lives fascinating. A human living as a cat, as one of us. How perrrfect would that be. If only! I thought the movie was satisfying over all. That Mr. Fuzzypants is in need of an Oscar if you ask me. This is definitely a movie I could watch again, maybe between naps. My humans were wide awake through the entire movie. There was all kinds of laughing going on, so I’m guessing they liked it whole lot. In-fact, I’d bet eight our of my nine lives that they did. Chances are you will too.
He is right, we did really enjoy the movie. Even though it was our second time seeing it, we laughed a lot, and even caught moments we didn’t catch the first time. Nine Lives is a move we are happy to have in our home collection.
