Calling all Cat Lovers - You have to watch this!
13 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We almost didn't watch this movie because the ratings were so bad, I am sorry I waited this long! I went with my sister and my kids aged 10 and 7, we laughed the whole way through! It was such a funny movie. I loved all the characters, especially frustrated Mr. Fuzzy Pants..! The supporting characters were great especially Christopher Walken and Cheryl Hines. Jennifer Garner and the girl cast as her daughter were beautiful and perfectly cast. Yes the story was a little predictable, but it didn't matter..the cat antics were hysterical, cat lovers and Kevin Spacey lovers will enjoy this film. We wanted an enjoyable family, summer movie and we got it!! PLEASE go watch this movie! It's a great last hurrah before school starts :)
