It's still only January, but it feels safe to say that we already have a pretty good idea of what will be among the worst movies of the year: Nine Lives, a family comedy that finds Kevin Spacey's billionaire businessman turned into a cat to punish him for neglecting his family. A cat. Kevin Spacey is a talking cat.
Jennifer Garner, who has a bad habit of letting herself be cast as the romantic interest of unattractive older men in lowest-common-denominator studio fare, also stars as Spacey's wife. And they even convinced Christopher Walken to join, as the protagonist's friend (we're presuming—- it could be a brother or a business partner). It seems that maybe only he knows the true identity of Mr. Fuzzypants.
We're guessing the cast got a pretty decent paycheck in exchange for the humiliation. Nine Lives opens on August 5.
