Puss in Boots

This is the first spin-off from the Shrek franchise. And since I do not like the Shrek movies that much, I'll give you three guesses as to what I thought of Puss in Boots.

"Say something nice, or I'll slice your throat."

And as a spin-off of Shrek, it logically follows that this takes place in the same universe─that is, a universe where all the fairy tales come together. And in this film, the fairy tales referenced are Humpty Dumpty, Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack and Jill, and of course Puss in Boots. Although technically, "Jack and Jill" is more of a nursery rhyme than a fairy tale, but you get my drift. Also, for the longest time, I thought Jack and Jill were siblings. That's why it took me a bit to adjust to this movie's premise that Jack and Jill are a married couple.

Incest. Like Cersei and Jaime Lannister.

That said, this is more of a kiddie flick, so unless you have kids who are going to watch this with you, I would suggest that you watch something else. Of course, if you can handle corny kiddie jokes one after another, you'd probably survive this. Or if you'd like to imagine Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek doing it, as cats of course, then watch this by all means. By the way, that costume that Kitty Softpaws wears makes her look like the Dark Knight.

Batwoman and Catman.

And the funniest line for me in this movie was when the authorities were going to throw Puss in jail, and they were going through his personal effects. One guard found a jar of catnip, and Puss scratched his head and answered, "It's for my glaucoma." Only a certain group of people will be able to get that joke.

Puss in Boots. USA. 2011.

Rating: Six out of ten.
