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

Trivia

Goofs

There are many mentions that Brand's tower will be the tallest in the northern hemisphere. The top 24 tallest buildings in the world are all in the northern hemisphere, so tallest building in the northern hemisphere would have to be tallest in the world. It is very odd for the news and media to refer to the building as tallest in the northern hemisphere rather than tallest in the world, which it would have to be. See more »

OK for kids
17 August 2016 | by joncovey-1See all my reviews

Great movie for kids and pet lovers. Some sweet moments. What's more important in life, lots of money or family. Language was mild, no memorable cursing. Clean movie.

Christopher Walken played the part of a mysterious man with mystical connections who runs a pet shop with cats. These cats can become receptacles for humans who need to learn what's really important in life.

Keven Spacey plays the billionaire whose greatest dream is to build the tallest building in North America.

Jennifer Garner is the wife and mother. Their little girl wants a kitten for her birthday. Dad is not happy with that but ends up getting a cat.

Don't want to say much more or I'll spoil the movie.
