In the cat's eye of the beholder,
This review is from: Stephen King's Cat's Eye [DVD] (DVD)
One of those films that is best appreciated late on TV when you've nothing better to do and aren't expecting too much of it. It's not one of the best films adapted from the works of Stephen King but if you like his short stories then there's much to appreciate, particularly the very black comedy and paranoia of the first part, as James Woods regrets his decision to try and give up smoking when it's obvious the firm he's hired to help him crack the habit will go to any length to make sure it happens.
The second story is extremely tense and really had me biting my nails as our hero tries to walk/edge round the side of a building in an effort to win a bet against the husband of the woman he's been having an affair with. If you don't like pigeons or heights then you'll want to give this section of the film a miss but for every one else it's gripping entertainment.
But the final section, with a young Drew Barrymore and the cat of the film's title, is a bit of a let-down and the connection between the three stories is rather tenuous (the ongoing adventures of the aforementioned cat is what links them together) . But for Stephen King fans with low to average expectations, or people who used to enjoy 'Tales of The Unexpected', this is pretty good fun.
