In the UK version when David Brand confronts Ian Cox about selling the company behind his family's back he is ordered off the premises whilst two security guards stand behind him. David then says something derogatory about Cox needing two "bouncers" but just as he gets to the word 'bouncers' there is a cut away from David talking to a different shot and the word 'bouncers' is said in a different voice. This indicates that the word 'bouncers' has been dubbed over a suggested expletive in order for the film to have a family friendly PG rating in the UK. It is unknown if the same cut appears in the US release of the film. See more »

The trailer is terribly attractive. The cat is awfully endearing. I went to see this fantasy film with high expectations, and found its story was ludicrous and disappointing. However, it did is a funny movie and have some laugh-out-loud moments as well as some sweet moments. So look out, grownups! Nine lives may truly offend you, but entertain your kids.
