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.

It does have its problems, but I liked it, and I do think there are worse sequels out there. I enjoyed Fritz the Cat and was all for a sequel, and I got a pretty good film. The story structure is episodic and there are moments that I would deem strange, but along the way I noticed some improvements as well. While I loved the unique look of Fritz the Cat, the animation here is really good here as well, even more colourful and vibrant than before. Plus the pacing I felt was much more secure first time around. The script is witty and funny, the soundtrack is hip and cool, the voice acting is good and Fritz still has both his hypocrisy and likability. Some of the supporting characters aren't as likable, and don't get enough screen time to shine though. Still, it is a pretty good film. 7/10 Bethany Cox
