SYNOPSIS

Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) adalah seorang milyarder nekat yang sedang berada di puncak kejayaannya. Perusahaan besarnya, FireBrand, hampir menggapai pencapaian terbesarnya—membangun gedung pencakar langit tertinggi di belahan Bumi utara. Tetapi, gaya hidup Tom sebagai penggila kerja telah memisahkannya dari keluarganya, terutama dengan istrinya yang cantik, Lara (Jennifer Garner), dan putrinya yang menyayanginya, Rebecca (Malina Weissman).

Ulang tahun Rebecca yang kesebelas hampir tiba, dan ia menginginkan hadiah yang selalu ia minta setiap tahun: seekor kucing. Tom benci kucing, tapi ia belum membeli hadiah dan hampir kehabisan waktu. GPS di mobilnya mengarahkan Tom ke sebuah toko binatang peliharaan mistis yang dipenuhi oleh kucing-kucing aneh dan eksotis—di mana sang pemilik toko yang eksentrik, Felix Perkins (Christopher Walkens), menghadiahinya dengan seekor kucing bernama Mr. Fuzzypants.

Dalam perjalanan menuju pesta ulang tahun putrinya, Tom mengalami kecelakaan mengerikan. Ketika ia kembali sadar, ia menemukan bahwa jiwanya terperangkap dalam tubuh seekor kucing. Ia pun dipelihara oleh keluarganya sendiri, dan ia mulai merasakan bagaimana jadinya bila ia jadi binatang peliharaan, dan sebagai seekor kucing, Tom mulai melihat keluarga dan kehidupannya dari perspektif yang baru dan tidak disangka. Sementara itu, ketika keluarganya berusaha untuk menyesuaikan diri dengan kehidupan bersama seekor kucing keras kepala yang aneh, putranya, David (Robbie Amell), mengambil alih tanggung jawabnya sebagai kepala keluarga dengan cara tak terduga.

 

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.

BLOGGERS REVIEW

DANIEL IRAWAN (Daniel Dokter)

With a premise that could’ve work better in ’80-90s, even Spacey and Garner couldn’t save Nine Lives from Sonnenfeld’s half-baked fantasy-comedy. Rating: ★★1/2
