‘Nine Lives’: Say scat to this Kevin Spacey cat movie
Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner and Christopher Walken at least chose to be in “Nine Lives.” The cast member you really feel bad for is the cat. It presumably was forced into the job by its manager, or agent, or whatever.

Does the experience remind him that he needs to spend more time with his wife and kids? Of course it does, but that’s not really the point. Boasting no less than five credited screenwriters, the film is like an exquisite-corpse exercise in kiddie-movie plotting. Yes, there is a workaholic parent faced with a case of supernatural mind-swap (a bizarre but enduring trope), but that’s almost an afterthought in light of the movie’s obsession with emasculation
