Nine Lives 2016

     The FireBrand Company is has nearly completed the tallest skyscraper in the northern hemisphere.  Tom Brand is the founder of the company and he has a workaholic lifestyle.  He is on his second wife and they have an 11 year-old daughter.  Rebecca’s birthday is quickly approaching and she asks for the same thing every year, a cat.  Tom does not like cats and this year he might really have to get a cat?  He finds a mystical pets store with cats and an eccentric owner.  Tom selects Mr. Fuzzypants.  On the way home from the store, a strange event happens that causes Tom and Mr. Fuzzypants to exchange bodies?
     This is so funny!!  Tom is in the hospital on a ventilator and Mr. Fuzzypants is running the show at home.  David Brand is trying to run the company but his nemeses Ian Cox is trying to turn everything to benefit his own agenda.  Reviews are split in half for this film?  Like it or hate it, not in between?  3 1/2* (I liked this movie)
