Goofy kiddie film.
18 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This film is goofy, but not to the point that it's unbearable. It's generally a fairly entertaining Czech film. A cat comes to town who wears glasses. When they are taken off, it can color people according to their nature. What results is the adults trying to get rid of it while the kids adore it. The whole thing is narrated by a guy in the town clock tower. One problem with this film is the color, it keeps changing from sharp and clear to faded and old looking. If you can find this, it's a good bet for kids.
