Storyline

Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game. His eponymous company FireBrand is nearing completion on its greatest achievement to date - the tallest skyscraper in the northern hemisphere. But Tom's workaholic lifestyle has disconnected him from his family, particularly his beautiful wife Lara (Jennifer Garner) and his adoring daughter Rebecca (Malina Weissman). Rebecca's 11th birthday is here, and she wants the gift she wants every year, a cat. Tom hates cats, but he is without a gift and time is running out. His GPS directs him to a mystical pet store brimming with odd and exotic cats- where the store's eccentric owner- Felix Perkins (Christopher Walken), presents him with a majestic tomcat, named Mr. Fuzzypants. En route to present his daughter with her dream pet, a bizarre turn of events finds Tom trapped inside the body of Mr. Fuzzypants. Adopted by his own family, he begins to experience what life is truly like for the family pet, and as a cat, Tom ... Written by EuropaCorp

Straight from the bottom of a box of twenty years old kitty litter,
17 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From a legal standpoint, and by that, I am referring to Writer's Guild regulations, according to the on-screen credits, it appears as though the screenplay was begun by (Matt Allen & Caleb Wilson) and then subsequently rewritten by (Dan Antoniazzi & Ben Shiffrin), before Gwyn Lurid completed the final shooting script. (For legal reasons, writers who collaborate together have their names linked with an ampersand, " & ". while those who worked separately have their names separated by the word "and", according to the Writer's Guild regulations). It took five writers, at three different stages to dream up this horribly dated story of a corporate exec whose soul ends up trapped in the body of a cat?

It feels like this may have been written in the early 1990s, storyboarded in the early to mid 90s (judging by the wardrobe and colour composition), but not filmed until 2015, and then sat unreleased for a further year, before being scraped out of the kitty litter box, and flung at cinema screens.

Iincredibly lame, with out-dated references (I counted at least two references to W. Bush, who left office nearly eight years prior to this film's release) and poorly done (and out of place) time lapse photography, and a mishmash of a screenplay which includes only a handful of Jokes, none of which are funny.
