Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: Sarah (Lizzy Caplan) is trying to be supportive of her sister’s wedding but has problems of her own when her musician boyfriend Kevin (Geoffrey Arend) she has just moved in with pops an unexpected proposal. Sarah then falls in love with Jonathan (Mark Webber) only to have complications arise.
Featured Feline: One of the highlights of this film are the brief appearances of a beautiful English shorthaired cat named Ferdinand played by Miss Kitty (yes, Ferdinand is a girl). Ferdinand is first seen when Sarah is packing to move into Kevin’s apartment.
Ferdinand (whom Sarah affectionately calls Ferd) has to get used to living with Kevin, as does Sarah.
When Sarah and Kevin break up after his embarrassing drunken and very public proposal, Sarah awakens the next morning with Ferdinand nibbling on her fingers.
Sarah and her new boyfriend, Jonathan, get better acquainted as a curious Ferdinand looks on.
Just over halfway through the film Ferdinand disappears when a door is left open. Jonathan puts up missing posters around the neighborhood and keeps an eye out for the cat for Sarah, who is dealing with bigger issues. When she finally returns home (and to Jonathan) he has found Ferdinand and is waiting on the front step.
Sarah and Jonathan share a romantic moment with Ferdinand between them.
