Fishy's Film Reviews - Puss in Boots
Saw Puss in Boots today in 2d
Certificate – U
Running time – 90 minutes
Scene after the credits – During the credits there is a little extra dance off
Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots
Salma Hayek as Kitty Softpaws
Zach Galifianakis as Humpty Dumpty
Years before meeting Shrek and Donkey, the adorable but tricky Puss in Boots must clear his name from all charges making him a wanted fugitive.
While trying to steal magic beans from the infamous criminals Jack and Jill, the hero crosses paths with his female match, Kitty Softpaws, who leads Puss to an old friend
What's right with it?
Awwww look at der Cat ^_^
If you love the character of Puss in Boots, you’ll like this because it shows the making of the hero, from Kitten to Cat
Antonio and Salma are also great, oozing kitty appeal, plus there are a few adult orientated jokes in this that go way over the kiddies heads
What’s wrong with it?
Other than the adult orientated jokes mentioned above, there’s hardly any other laughs to be had.
At some points it’s even boring, and I’m sad to say that at the most boring quiet bit I actually fell asleep, and woke myself up with my own snoring!
The Kitty Dance/Fight off
Puss in Boots: You are not as good as they say you are, Miss Softpaws. You're better.
Humpty Dumpty: First rule of Bean Club, don't talk about Bean Club. The second rule of Bean Club... don't talk about Bean Club.
Ohhh Cat: Ooooooooooooooooooohhhhhh!
This movie marks the fifth collaboration between stars Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek. They previously worked together in past films such as Desperado, Frida, Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, and Once Upon a Time in Mexico.
The main character, Puss, makes a "P" as his signature; a signature very similar to the "Z" El Zorro makes. Antonio Banderas played El Zorro in The Mask of Zorro and The Legend of Zorro.
The guard going through Puss in Boots personal things notices he has a small vial of Catnip. Puss in Boots sheepishly explains it is for glaucoma. This is a marijuana reference as many early medical marijuana patients used it to treat glaucoma.
Puss's catchphrase 'Holy Frijoles' actually means, 'Holy Beans' in Spanish.
Go see if you love Cats
Go see if you also love the Shrek films, its nowhere near as good as the others though, I’d put them in this order
Shrek > Shrek 2 > Shrek Forever After = Puss In Boots > Shrek 3
Go see it, but expect some dissapointment
