Patti's (Christina Ricci) cat D.C. (Elvis the Cat), witnesses the abduction of the Flints' (Dean Jones, Dyan Cannon) maid. Patti finds a bracelet around his neck with the word "Hell" scratched into it's surface and makes a huge leap of logic. Although the local police are unwilling to listen to her far-fetched story, an FBI agent named Zeke (Doug E. Doug) gets assigned to the case. Zeke and Patti trail D.C. hoping that he will lead them to the kidnappers. Would-be hilarity ensues as D.C. tromps around town making his nightly rounds.
"That Darn Cat" is a remake of the live-action Disney film of the same. My recollection of that earlier film is faulty, but I would find it hard to believe that it could be as unfunny and poorly-executed as this stinker. The kids, of various ages, I took to the film were bored with the on-screen antics. Adults will want nothing to do with it.
