Cat in Boots


Shrek spin-off is fluffy and forgettable Reviews

Having squeezed every possible penny out of mean green monster Shrek, DreamWorks now drops a spotlight on its most popular second-stringer, the swashbuckling lothario introduced in Shrek 2 (and renamed for a Middle Eastern audience). The little guy’s secret weapon was always those enormous, pleading peepers, and this starring vehicle plays the same angle. If the mere sight of a cat with leather footwear puts you in stitches, boy does Cat in Boots have your number. Antonio Banderas reprises the title role, yet proves incapable of transforming this one-note character into more than the plush-doll Zorro parody he’s always been.

you know the film is called puss in boots not 'cat in boots'...also maybe if the reviewer actually saw it instead berating Antonio Banderas, he might have better understanding of what this film is really like and maybe catch its real title
