MOVIE REVIEW — PUSS IN BOOTS

Puss in Boots

Shrek may have closed the book on his final chapter last year, but his furry friends are still around to keep the lucrative franchise alive. The first spinoff stars the swashbuckling cat (voiced by Antonio Banderas), who’s on a quest for some magic beans and to redeem himself for some mistakes he made in the past. Along the way, he pounces on the usual visual gags, fairy-tale mashups, and pop-culture references that kept the Shrek series going for four movies. Puss finally gets a back-story and his own sidekicks, Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) and Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis). But like the last couple of the big green ogre’s adventures, Puss in Boots runs out of ideas before its half over. But until it does, it’s kinda fun, with Galifianakis’ scrambled eggman the most rounded, er oval, character.
