Storyline

Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game.

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.

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

No sure why this is getting so many bad reviews
27 October 2016 | by barryweirSee all my reviews

OK, I agree that this is no Citizen Kane, but I was amazed at the critical reviews and low IMDb score.

I think perhaps to appreciate this you need to be particularly fond of cats and/or been a cat owner. But if you are then this film is a perfectly serviceable slice of family entertainment, and frankly there are much, much worse films out there. Kevin Spacey and Chris Walken are dependable as always and I think there is plenty about this that kids will enjoy. Worth a look as a Sunday afternoon family film in my opinion, or perhaps as something you can put on to keep the kids amused.
