Tim Meadows co-wrote and stars in this sometimes funny adaptation of his Saturday Night Live character, a smooth Shaft-like cat who loves his ladies and they all love him back. The seventies-dressing disco-talker is getting nowhere in his field of radio broadcasting after having been fired from the last station that would have his smutty sex advice on the air, but rescue comes in the nick of time. Seems a former flame of his has written him a letter inviting him to come live with her now that she’s super rich; trouble is, she’s only signed his pet name for her, not her real name, and it takes the whole film for him to figure out who she is. A hilarious cameo by  perks up what is otherwise a run-of-the-mill comedy, done in the exact style of all the other SNL films (save Wayne’s World).
