This darkly funny farce pits the eternal battle of pure evil against innocent fuzzy goodness. Dr. Evil wants to destroy the world, but when a basket of kittens arrives on his doorstep, it’s his own world that gets turned upside down. The Council of Evil is set to arrive any minute for the unveiling of the thermal ray — Dr. Evil’s latest weapon of world domination — and he must impress them at all costs. If the Council finds him with this basketful of precious kittens, they may never offer the financial backing he needs to complete his dastardly project. Being truly evil, there is only one solution that Dr. Evil can think of... (gasp!) the kittens must be destroyed. But with several identical baskets going in and out of his lab and the crazy antics of his assistant’s mummified mother, his own vampire mother and the practical-joke-loving family of were-hyenas who live next door, the kittens just may make it out alive. You’ll be rooting for the precious little fur balls the whole way. If not, Dr. Evil’s neighbors, Mary Shelley and Dr. Frankenstein, who narrate the evil tale, might think you’re just as evil as Dr. Evil himself. One thing is true, being bad has never been this much fun!
