Create a Purrfect Movie Night at Home with Your Cat! #NineLives

Meows from Mudpie!

Last week we told you about how Mommy and I have been spending a lot more time cuddling together on the couch since the chilly weather finally arrived. This weekend we have extra "Mommy and me" time scheduled thanks to the arrival of our Nine Lives DVD, which was just released on Digital HD and Blu-ray on 11/1!

Mommy hardly ever goes to the movies; she'd much rather watch DVDs at home with me. And of course she gravitates towards animal movies, even though they inevitably end up making her eyes leak bucket loads. Thankfully that won't be the case with Nine Lives as it's a comedy.

Plot Summary:
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 his daughter's party, Tom has a terrible accident. When he regains consciousness he discovers that somehow, he has become trapped inside the body of the cat. Adopted by his own family, he begins to experience what life is truly like for the family pet, and as a cat, Tom begins to see his family and his life through a new and unexpected perspective. Meanwhile, his family adjusts to life with an odd and stubborn cat, and his son David (Robbie Amell), steps up in ways Tom never expected.
If any hope exists of returning to his family as the husband and father they deserve, Tom will have to learn why he has been placed in this peculiar situation and the great lengths he must go to earn back his human existence.

We can't wait to grab a blankie, load up on snacks (for both of us) and curl up to watch the movie together. Mommy says we'll probably have some playtime first to make sure I'm content to stay still for 90 minutes!

I can't think of a more purrfect night, can you?

Do your humans like going to the movies or do they prefer movie nights at home with you?

Many thanks to 20th Century Fox for sending us a free copy of the movie!


  1. It's on DVD already? Maybe my human will check it out... and of course I'll watch with her!

  2. Movie night is always a good idea with cats. I think we that DVD in a pile of deliveries.

  3. SCORE! I had no idea this was out already ... thank you!
    ps - We hope you and your Mommy enjoy the cuddle/movie :)

  4. Sounds like a perfect night! I'd hoped to catch this movie when it was in theaters, but I never found the time. But now that I could watch it at home in my PJs and with a cat or two... :)

  5. This movie sounds so fun and heartwarming! We will definitely be watching it here at out house soon. Enjoy your movie, snacks, and cuddles, Mudpie and Melissa!

  6. Wow! I need this kind of night! Rough week for George & I! Hugs...and peace.

  7. Mommy loves going to the movies. But this one she'll watch on the couch with us.

  8. The only thing I didn't like about the movie trailer was that it seemed to depict scenes which could be harmful to the cat. I'd like to think they used spfx. But it did seem very funny.

  9. I am seriously going to run out and get this movie for tonight! Any movie with a cat is a classic!Did you see the movie Keanu about the cute kitten everyone (even gangsters) are fighting over cause they all want to keep him! hilarious!
