FRIDAY FLICKS: Puss in Boots
Kidlet adored movies from the age of 2 but his younger brother not so much.
When PUSS IN BOOTS released last year, it was the first movie preschooler sat through with some interest.
Since then, he has watched Shrek 2 & 3 a hundred times for one reason: Puss in Boots.
He thinks the cat is super cool and I have to agree.
With the movie just being released on DVD (and yes, I had to buy it yesterday) I thought this review is timely.
PUSS IN BOOTS is a prequel to Shrek 2, where Puss first makes an appearance.
In this movie, he teams up with the mastermind Humpty Dumpty and a street-wise cat Kitty Softpaws, to go after the outlaw couple Jack and Jill who have the magic beans he's been searcing for his entire life.
Beans that can lead to the giant's castle hiding valuable golden goose eggs.
Sounds like fun, huh?
The movie is a rollicking good adventure, made easier on the ears by the dulcet tones of Antonio Banderas who plays Puss.
Salma Hayek is fabulous as Kitty Softpaws.
And Jack (Billy Bob Thornton) and Jill (Amy Sedaris) are seriously scary!
I won't give away any plot points but needless to say, there are many twists and turns in this fun film.
Kids will love it.
And if you're like me and mainly see kids' flicks these days, adults will enjoy it too.
