A high school baseball coach (Krumholtz) and a down-on-his-luck private investigator (Burns) form a bond as they scour New York City for the coach's wife, who's run away with a second-rate rock star.

Here Kitty Kitty Kitty Kitty, Here Kitty Kitty Kitty Kitty! Boy, do I need pussy! OK, enough! "Looking For Kitty" is another Edward Burns creation which I found to be of catwalk material. Burns plays Jack Stanton, a New York introverted private detective who takes on a missing person case. Yes, he is Looking For Kitty. Stanton himself has been missing the riches of life for a long time because he grieves the loss of his dead wife. David Krumholtz co-stars as Abe Fiannico, the Midwestern idiosyncratic baseball coach who travels to New York to find his missing wife. Yes, he is also Looking For Kitty. Abe hires Stanton to, yea you got it, to be Looking For Kitty. OK, I will stop "Kitting" around. New York plays a central figure in the film's symbolism & richness. Burns subtle, but yet, moving "Looking For Kitty" will quietly "stray" in your system for a while. Writer-Director Burns continues to be unappreciated by the film industry. He is the ultimate film voice of the Irish-American community. His acting effort as the cocky, standoffish Stanton was commendable. The petite Krumholtz gave a big performance as the desperate & honest Abe. One of the supreme supporting performances I have seen so far this year. "Looking For Kitty" is a prototype cinematic tool kit on an effective dialogue-driven film. ***** Excellent
