    A fun movie for the ages

    I was little when I first watched this movie and now I have purchased it to share with my nieces. Horrible visual effects and I must say a not so interesting plot make this not a movie to rush out and buy and a must have for all movie watchers but if a part of you wishes to have back the simplicity of yesteryear and just to have an escape for a few moments then sit back with the kids and pop some popcorn and soak up the entertainment.

    A Blast From The Past

    I love movies that are based on an actual story. Today's "family" movies seem to feel the need to have constant "gags" about bodily functions. This movie did not need that. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Great story with a surprise ending. Great effects. Just great fun!

    Fantastic!

    People think that older kids wouldn't like this movie, but I prove them wrong. In a sence the older you get the more you like it. I've seen it about five times and still remember some parts even after a year. This is a fantastic film that you'll love over and over again!

    Great Family Movie

    I am under thirty, but I grew up watching this movie. It is about a cat from outer space, as the name implies =), that wears a collar which gives him amazing abilities such has talking and levitation. The antics of the cat, and his human friends are hilarious. This is a must for anyone who wants a good, clean, family movie. This movie is from the era when Disney made a certain style of clean family comedies in the late sixties and early seventies. It is hard to put a name to it, but Disney made several movies that all had a similar style. I have listed several of these movies below.
