Please help to figure out this movie title

I can't remember to much about the film but I think it was made in the 80's or early 90's. All I can remember is this old man has collects books or some kind of art or treasures. There is this green alcohol or some kinda of drink in the library of his home. There was also something about this statue of a cat and I think it talks to him. I thought the title might have andrew or argonaut in it but I could be wrong. The main character is an old man weighs probably around 250 lbs. He might be a writer. The woman stops by because I think she wants something. Later they find an underground tomb and I think she gets locked in it at the end. If you google egyptian cat statue you can see what the statue looks like. Thanks again!!

Looks like it is not on DVD. I know I have a VHS copy of it from cable. Quirky movie and it has Carrie-Anne Moss (before she hit is big with The Matrix).
