Two single-parent families live quite close to each other. One household is small and poor and obsessed with cheese puffs. The other is large and rich and obsessed with waffles. Fortunately for the occupants of both houses, Duffy, a talking cat (!?!) comes on the scene.

I am now rather lost for words as to what happened. I mean, certainly the voice of the cat was recorded in 15 minutes in the actor’s living room. There are two locations in the movie (one of which is Santa’s summer house, don’t ask) but there are 59 establishing shots. Some of these establishing shots are of a beach that does not appear as a location in the movie. I wonder if those are the activation codes that I was meant to be looking out for… ahem.

So some things happened and then it ended. It nearly ended in disaster because Duffy (the magical cat that brought them all together) was hit by a car (off camera) near the end. One of the characters is met with sad faces and the immortal statement of “well the vet made him comfortable but…”

Yeah. That cat looks… actually very comfortable indeed. No, really, I mean, look at it, it’s just laying on the bed. Although someone has draped some gauze on its head.

Oh, and then they all go to find a magical collar made of twigs that cures the cat and they all live happily ever thank you very much RiffTrax.

I need to go and buy a waffle iron. Excuse me.
