Robert Clayton Dean (Will Smith) is a successful lawyer who accidentally gets on the wrong side of the National Security Agency. He enlists the help of a former operative, and his tag a long cat. Wherever they go, the cat goes too.
But before we meet the ever calm Babe, we are treated to a glimpse of another cat, which departs in a blur when startled when a man bursts into a restaurant kitchen. Maybe he thought the man was a health inspector, as I'm sure cats are not meant to loiter in commercial kitchens!
