Bottom Line: Devoid of the annoying pop culture references that hamstrung this story’s cinematic source material (SHREK, SHREK 2 and SHREK THE TURD THIRD) this is a fun, furry, swashbuckling adventure that, although not groundbreaking – and dragging from time-to-time, should entertain children and parents alike. Landing confidently on its feet, PUSS IN BOOTS is a family-friendly fairly thrilling yarn.
Starring the voices of: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek and Zach Galifianakis
Running time: 90 minutes
Story: Puss In Boots – one of the most beloved characters of the “Shrek” universe – tells the hilarious and courageous (daring, bold, brave) tale of Puss’s early adventures as he teams with mastermind Humpty Dumpty and the street-savvy Kitty to steal the famed goose that lays the Golden Eggs. (Dreamworks)
