Nine Lives (2016) - Movie Review - Quick Movie Reviews by Haris

Tom Brand is a billionaire and he’s on top of the world. His extremely profitable company FireBrand is about to pull of its greatest achievement yet – build the tallest skyscraper in the northern hemisphere. But, Tom is a workaholic and it has disconnected him from his family, particularly his wife Lara and his daughter Rebecca. Rebecca’s 11th birthday is coming and she wants the gift she wants every year, a cat. Tom hates cats, but he doesn’t have a gift and is running out of time. So he gets in his white sports car, enters the address of the nearest pet store into his GPS and speeds through New York City traffic… The GPS leads him to Purrkins pet store, run by an eccentric owner Felix Perkins. He shows him a big tomcat, named Mr. Fuzzypants. He heads home to bring his daughter her birthday gift, but, he gets and accepts an important call and he rushes to the roof of the building his company is making. Lightning strikes and he falls of the roof and that way he gets trapped inside the body of Mr. Fuzzypants. He begins to experience what life is truly like for the family pet, and as a cat, he begins to see his family and his life through a new and unexpected perspective. Meanwhile, his family must learn how to live with an odd and stubborn cat. While Tom is in a coma in the hospital, his son David steps up and tries to run the company, but, nobody at the company listens to him. There is some hope of Tom to return back to his human form, but, he will have to learn why he has been placed in this weird situation.

Wow! This is probably one of the best kids movies I have ever seen. it really is great, it deserves to be watched. Not many people are talking about this movie, it’s very underrated… I’m just kidding, this is one of the weirdest and worst movies ever and it’s weird in a way of how it even got made. In a weird way, this movie is so crazy that I actually like it…

Also, that plot, on the surface, sounds like a nice kids movie, right?. But, this is only the surface. I’m going to get in to the weird shit now. I almost died laughing at the stupid decisions in this movie. Here we go… You expect this to be a movie that kids can enjoy? WRONG! Here is a list of the kid inappropriate stuff in this movie. Oh, boy, this is gonna be fun:

1 – more than 50% of this movie is business meetings and stock market discussions! Yup, that’s right, the kid friendly version of The wolf of Wall Street 🤣

2 – there’s a two or-three minute scene with Kevin Spacey as the cat, because he’s thirsty, he tries to open a whiskey bottle filled closet in his office in his penthouse. He opens it successfully and spots an ashtray and pours the whiskey… Yeah, alcohol and cigarettes… Yeah, very kid friendly

3 – when they bring the cat home, they just let him loose and run wild, they don’t even give him food or water or litter box, so, they’re shocked when they wake up because he peed on the carpet. The bring him his food and water and litter box that morning. And that’s not the most stupid part. They put the litter box right next to his food and water bowl, like, INCHES AWAY. Every time he takes a shit he’s going to dig through that litter box and it’s going to get right in his food and water… WHAT THE FUCK!? 🤣

4 – Kevin Spacey as the cat is trying to break into his own building to try and stop a terrible thing from happening and the security guards want to taser him. TASER A CAT!!!??? 🤣

5 – So, that terrible thing he’s trying to stop from happening is his son’s suicide. He wants to jump off the roof of the building because he can’t save the company from this evil executive. SUICIDE!!!??? IN A KIDS MOVIE!!!??? 🤣

This movie is amazing. I’m for sure gonna watch it again just to laugh at its stupidity over and over again. This movie is not all bad, though. There is still some very good humor and the movie is gorgeous to look at, but, oh, man, these decisions. Oh, wow…
