Forgive me -- I'm a dog lover. Despite that, I thought this film was a lot funnier than most people give it credit for. The cat was a truly professional actor; after all, he was the star. That said, Christopher Walken and Kevin Spacey fulfilled their duty as supporting actors wonderfully. C'mon folks, this is a fantasy, which means you suspend reality. Enjoy this movie for what it is -- good, clean fun -- which you don't find very often these days.
I've not seen that many comedy films I would watch again let alone recommend to my dearest friends, but this is one of them. Why you may ask? It all comes down to the life lessons that are packed within this film. One of them that's mentioned and showcased throughout is to be happy at any given point in your life because it could be a lot worse. This is so true and I know it from personal experience. In terms of the premise, I thought it was original though rather outlandish. On a similar note, I think the cast overall should be commended for bringing an authentic performance to a comedy film. The best part about this film is that it will likely stick in your mind long after you watch it. That's what I call a great film.

If you love cats and/or heart-warming comedies this is a must watch movie. I had my doubts about it, being a previously unheard-of movie that many reviewers hate for some reason; I thought it would just be another cheap throwaway flick. But after watching it I now rate it in one of my top favorites of all time. The cat is depicted perfectly in that it's not quite catlike yet not cartoony, excellently suited for a cat-who's-actually-a-human. The humor is light yet intelligent, and the story emotional. Pretty much the only issue I really had was that Jennifer Garner's first appearance made her stand out far too much and became a slight distraction. I was instantly reminded of her latest Capital One commercials!
Watch the movie, then decide how much you might like it. You'll probably be glad you did.
Kevin Spacey and Christopher Walken at it again? Of course this flick is awesome (naturally). Laughed non-stop the entire movie, because leave it to these two to take one of the most old, tired, canned, regurgitated movie plot lines of all time ever and still make it highly entertaining. 5 star performance from the kid actor, too... and Jennifer Garner always delivers. Wish I could give this movie 10 stars. Go ahead, indulge yourself... and enjoy the ride.
PS - My boyfriend and I watched this late at night, and he ALWAYS falls asleep during movies, especially at night - but not this time. He laughed right along with me all the way through til the end. Quite possibly a first.
Full Disclosure: I am very much a cat-loving woman ("Cat Lady" implies ownership of 4+ felines, but I only own 2, thankyouverymuch)... but even if you hate cats, you'll still be highly entertained the entire time if you have a sense of humor - I promise.
This movie made my day. The casting is great, Kevin Spacey is perfect and even the cat (Mr. Fuzzypants) will convince you he's human. I don't know how they did it, but this has got to be one of the best "feel good" movie that is not junk, in any way. MUST WATCH! Loved it!

Serious movie with some laughs, some tears, and top-notch acting. Spacey is good in an unsympathetic role of a Trump-like mogul forced to revue his life choices. Walken is marvelous as the "pet store owner". Okay for kids, thoughtful for adults and seniors. Qualiity writing throughout. It should have been the #1 movie of 2016.
This movie didn’t deserve the trashing it got from critics.
Yes, it’s cliched, and kind of a reimagined version of the old Disney relic “The Shaggy Dog”. But it’s funny, weird, and at times even touching.
It’s not particularly original or groundbreaking, and Kevin Spacey’s recent scandals might lead some people to dismiss it. But you shouldn’t miss out on it. If nothing else, it has a perfectly-cast role by Christoper Walken.
Don’t go into it expecting Oscar material. It’s not. But it’s worth your time, and has humor and heart you don’t see in many movies these days.
The movie follows an idea that has been done many times. I watched it knowing what the general theme of the movie was going to be. If you go into the movie knowing its going to be cheesy, then you'll really enjoy it. There are many funny parts about the movie, and this is another movie where Christopher Walken is absurdly funny.
I had never heard of the movie, but I watched the trailer and decided to give it a go. I wasn't disappointed.

American humor can struggle to work for other cultures. This does too, but accept it for oversimplified fluff and it's OK fun. The dialogue leaves alot to be desired and it works a little too hard on the stereotypes and easy laughs. It never tried for any deep clever insights. It has none of the higher wit you might have hoped for in a film like this: All about being tricked into appreciating a loving family more, and the perils of an over-ruthless work ethic.
The cat is a star! In fact it is an all star cast. No one one was particularly making an effort, though it got better as it went along.
If your kids love animals in a simple 'cuddles' way, they'll (probably) like this. No need to invest in a copy of your own for the library though.

It's a good film but not outstanding as 'cute animals with top actors' type of films go. Less was made of Spacey, Walken and Jennifer Garner and the film suffered for it. However much as I love cuddly cats, and this one and it's stand-in are delectable, there just wasn't enough oomph in the cat scenes to make me purr. I much preferred 'Hachi' which included pathos and that really sealed my love for the film. 'NineLives' is entertaining without being outstanding and is a once-watch only in my honest opinion.

I watched the his with my children, 9 and 5 and we all enjoyed it. Kevin's Spacey plays a workaholic businessman whose life is literally turned upside down by the arrival of a mysterious cat bought for his daughters birthday. Unexpected and really entertaining.
