(Fun movie for kids)

Antonio Banderas (as Puss) and Salma Hayak (as Kitty Softpaws) lend their voices in this cartoon for kids.

Puss is looking for Jack in Beanstalk’s magic beans (the very mean and ugly Jack and Jill have them) so he, Kitty, and bad egg Humpty Dumpty (Zack Galifianakis) can ride the beanstalk up to grab the goose who lays the golden eggs.  Hey, everyone wants to be rich.  Unfortunately, the goose’s mother is HUGE and wants her baby back, and Humpty is not a good egg.

“Puss in Boots” is a fun movie for kids but a bit boring for adults.  Some funny cat moments (like when Puss drinks leche, and chases the moving light) and some exciting action scenes (the ride up on the beanstalk was, for my stomach, very roller-coasterish)  I did not see Shrek, unless I missed him.  Other than that…well…hmmm, this is an ok movie.  Not great, but, fun for kids.  “Kung Fu Panda 2” is WAY better.  Adults will enjoy” The Rum Diary“.

Go here for more info on IMDb.  We watched this movie at CineMark, Tracy, CA (watch for our poster, below, in CineMark Tracy Dec 1, 2011 thru Dec 30 2011!).

Oh..although we are now getting used to amazing technology, I have to say, the computer graphics in this movie is astounding!

Drive Safe! Never Forget.
