Puss in Boots (Chris Miller, 2011)

What's it about? Remember Puss in Boots from the Shrek films? Well, here we find out how he became such a legendary outlaw. It's a tale that involves Humpty Dumpty, Jack & Jill, a search for some magic beans, and an alluring cat burglar in the form of Kitty Softpaws.

Is it any good? A fast-paced, feline adventure, with some good gags at the expense of the Western genre and traditional fairy-tales. The voice talent of Antonio Banderas (Puss) and Salma Hayek (Kitty) also impresses, their sultry accents turning the most innocent of dialogue into breathy, sexually-charged exchanges. And in a kids film! Tut-tut. It's not quite as inventive or as consistently funny as the first two Shrek films, but it's still good, furry fun, especially when Puss momentarily forgets his cool and acts like a real cat. Plus the hero is ginger. And that's just cool

Anything else I should know? I bought some magic beans once. They didn't grow into a beanstalk or anything, but after I ate them, I acquired excellent sleight of fart. Hence, every time I parped, people thought it was David Copperfield. Now that's magic!

What does the Fonz think? Cat's got my thumb
