Maybe a kind soul can tell us what is so funny about this movie? We just don't get it and to be honest, we are probably some of the silliest, most easily entertained people you will meet! lol and I know people will say, "you're over analyzing a silly movie" I'm sure we are lol but it just doesn't make sense to us at all. Tonight a friend and I watched Puss in Boots because we've heard it was cute and it was on On-Demand for free. We both thought we would enjoy it because we enjoyed all the other Shrek movies. It started off ok but quickly devolved into innuendos, which I guess are the norm with children's movies now, but they included insinuations as to prison rape, sleeping around, suicide, and incest. Let us not forget that revenge was a dominating factor in this plot. (Not exactly great topics for kids, I don't think). Although most of it will go over the child's head, I still wouldn't let them watch this movie. They've warped some classic tales and by doing that it's kind of like they are promoting these things (at least to us anyway). It was very strange for a kids movie, if it were an adult cartoon type movie, I'd understand but a lot of the subplots/topics were very adult for a PG film. By the end of the movie, there were just some things didn't understand.
1. Why were Puss & Humpty the only non-humans in the orphanage?
2. Why did Jack want to start a family with Jill when they are brother & sister?
3. Why were people working for Humpty, when he got out of prison, if he didn't have any money?
4. Why was the goose, from the beanstalk, a baby when it was an adult goose in original tale?
5. Why did Jack, from the beanstalk who was a boy when he traded for the beans, look to be in his 60's when he said he only got 8-10 years in prison?
6. Why when Humpty let go of the rope, to save the baby goose, did he crack open on a rock and and become a golden egg? and why did the mother goose pick him up and take him with her when she left with her baby?
