Nine Lives is a movie that may be best enjoyed by 9-12 year olds. Anyone younger and the story will be lost, anyone older may find the it a bit painful.

A super busy construction tycoon falls off a building and his soul enters the body of the cat he was carrying as a gift for his 11-year-old daughter, while his body lies in a coma. He must now learn how to be a better person while also saving his company from being sold off by his unscrupulous employee while still being a cat, before he can get his life back.

Even though you know from the start that the movie is going to end well, there are some pretty tense moments which keep you wondering what's going to happen next. The story moves ahead with some pretty unconvincing coincidences and happenings but if you can buy a man's soul being in a cat you can pretty much buy into anything.

The performances (Kevin Spacey and Jessica Garner as the tycoon and his wife) are pretty decent. I found their daughter played by Malina Weismann too saccharine sweet but kids may like her. The cat has some special moments which are good fun.

The movie has some good laughs and a lot of dramatic action going on. You may enjoy watching it with the family on a rainy day.
