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
Both Mark Consuelos and director Barry Sonnenfeld are allergic to cats, which made filming scenes with Mr. Fuzzypants difficult. Most of these scenes had to be filmed by the second unit. In the scene where Consuelos is struggling with the cat, his reactions of disgust are real. See more »
When the cat is seen jumping across a doorway in Tom Brand's apartment it starts to run as it finishes twisting in mid air and appears to descend. This shows shot has been added in during post production as the cat was quite obviously filmed landing onto a perspex landing pad in special effects and then matted into the scene. This same mistake is later repeated when the two security guards are watching and laughing at the same scene on a cellphone. See more »
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.
