I’m a complete sucker when it comes to animated films. Whether it be Finding Nemo, Wall-E or Toy Story, there’s just something about these movies that draw me in. Puss in Boots is no different. From start to finish, I loved pretty much everything from Puss.
One Bad Cat
I find it a bit hard to go in and be super critical about a movie like this. In fact, it’s nearly impossible to really pick at specific things. In my mind, if an animated film has some action and makes me chuckle a few times along the way, it’s a winner. Puss in Boots does exactly this.
The thing that really cracked me up about Puss in Boots was the way the writers constantly remind you that, behind it all, Puss is still a cat. Whether its Puss chasing after a spot of light on the ground, or ordering a shot of leche, this little splash of realism cracks me up.
Another bright spot for Puss in Boots is the story of Humpty Dumpty. Zach Galifianakis completely kills the role of Humpty. Throughout the film I couldn’t shake the thought of Galifianakis in a booth somewhere speaking as Humpty. Picturing him talking and making faces has me laughing even as I write this review.
The Bottom Line
Puss in Boots is truly an adventure for all ages. I would 100% recommend going and seeing this one. I found it to be a perfect date movie, but if you have a kid in your life, bring them along too. The action, with a pinch of adult humor, and a genuinely entertaining story, makes Puss in Boots everything that you would expect, and then some.
