Fritz the Cat may have lost one of his lives in the comics, but in his new movie, he has eight more lives left to go! While his wife screams at him, Fritz lights up a joint and reminiscences about what could have been.
Fritz, now married and with a son, is desperate to escape from the domestic hell he now finds himself in. Lighting up a joint, he begins to dream about his eight other lives, hoping to find one that will provide a pleasant distraction. The drug-induced journeys he takes include spells as an astronaut, Hitler's psychiatrist, a courier travelling in hostile territory during a race war, and as a pupil of an Indian guru living in the sewers of New York.

Look I don't know how you can run a business and not be able to cash this miserable pittance of a welfare check, is all.

Follow up to X-rated predecessor is a witty, lively satire of the 1970s, spoofing such topics as war, race, sex, drugs, and child-rearing.
Perverse and off-color, to be sure, with potentially offensive material to certain tastes, but never fails to entertain those with open minds.
Just remember, this film was made in 1974, and it covers socially relevant material pertaining to that time period, NOT the 1990s. So don't watch it expecting to see issues that Americans face today. View it as somewhat of a period piece, and try to imagine yourself in any of Fritz's given scenarios.
**1/2 out of ****.
