Puss in Boots
You loved him in Shrek…now see where the one-and-only swashbuckling feline found his fame – and a very big pair of boots – in the “hilariously funny” (Associated Press) animated epic! Lover, fighter and outlaw Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas) is off on the adventure of his nine lives as he teams up with Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) and Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) for the ultimate showdown with the notorious Jack and Jill (Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris). Here’s the true story of The Cat, The Myth, The Legend – Puss In Boots!
Puss in Boots: The Three Diablos
As the dust from his latest adventure begins to settle, Puss in Boots finds himself at a crossroads between two destinies – hero and outlaw. When a desperate princess hires Puss to recover her stolen ruby, he is reluctantly partnered with the three little kittens. Adorable. Fuzzy. Deadly. The minute the mittens are off, these Three Diablos wreak havoc on Puss' mission to recover the stolen ruby from the notorious French thief, The Whisperer. Can Puss tame these three little devils in time to recover the ruby?

In this fractured fairy tale, Jack and Jill have the magic beans and Humpty Dumpty, with the aid of Kitty Softpaws, convinces his old friend Puss in Boots to help him steal the beans so they can climb the beanstalk to get to the golden eggs. Never mind that Humpty Dumpty and Puss in Boots had a falling out years ago, or that Jack and Jill are completely preoccupied by their squabbling over whether or not to have a child--and regardless that Puss in Boots is a wanted cat who's sworn off his thieving ways, and Kitty Softpaws is a cat burglar who works alone. Comedy abounds in this film, not only in the twists and turns of some classic fairy tales gone awry, but with scenes that range from a litter-box dance fight between crowds of cats to Jack expressing his paternal instincts by strapping on a baby carrier filled with a piglet in a diaper, and, of course, Puss in Boots' crafty use of his famous sad eyes to get just what he wants. The animation is top-notch (especially in the mass cat scenes), the music is compelling, and the voice talents of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zack Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton, and Amy Sedaris are solid. While considered by some to be a prequel of sorts to the four Shrek films, Puss in Boots is definitely a stand-alone spinoff. What the films do share is a common comedic interpretation of some well-known fairy-tale characters and knack for spinning a funny story that appeals to both kids and adults. While a heightened sense of peril and some extended fight scenes may prove a bit intense for the youngest and most sensitive audience members, Puss in Boots is generally appropriate for ages 7 and older. --Tami Horiuchi

From the very beginning, this movie captures your attention and doesn't let go. The graphics were absolutely outstanding! And the jokes were actually... funny!!! And the MUSIC? Totally engaging and blanketed the entire film with a Spanish ambience that only added to the already exciting experience. The 3D from the theater was superb, I might add. But many weeks after leaving the theater, I saw this was available on Amazon... and I just HAD to HAVE it! Everything the movie offered couldn't possibily have been diminished to the point where ordering this DVD to watch at home in 2D would be pointless.... just for the music alone!
Every twist and turn in the movie was unexpected and exciting. Every time I thought I could predict what would happen next -- BAM! Within seconds, the movie took a new turn with head-slapping moments of disbelief.
I wouldn't dream of putting any spoilers here to rob you of the level of enjoyment I had when viewing it for the first time. I was no fan of Puss or anything remotely related to Shrek as far back as Shrek 1. But THIS movie? IT WAS OUTTA SITE!!!!!!!!!
Note on the Three Diablos: This product does have The Three Diablos DVD in the package for several dollars more than buying the featured movie alone. This movie/short doesn't have the impact the feature movie does, nor did I expect it to. It's only 11 minutes in length, and features three "baby" pusses with swords as the "stars"... sort of like "little pusses in boots," the way the "baby muppets" spun off the original muppets. I only saw parts of this short, but that was on You Tube (the full 11 minutes version) and before I purchased this set. The only reason I ordered this set and not the movie alone was that I knew I'd be pulling it out for some of my friends' kids who visit from time to time and thought they may enjoy it (kids' taste do often differ from adults' taste ... never met a kid yet that said "I hate that cartoon!" -- they love everything!!). And I certainly didn't want to enter a situation where those kids knew about the second movie's existence or may have had it at home and then ask ME if I had it. I didn't want to disappoint the yunguns who would be watching this and thought the little bit difference in price was not unwarranted and was worth having it on hand.
Ages 1 to 101, get the popcorn and enjoy! Adios, amigos!
#1 Kept my interest (the story is good, the music is great, ...)
#2 Made me laugh out loud
#3 I would watch again
#4 Is appropriate for all ages
I bought this originally for my youngest nephew who is fascinated with cats although he's not allowed to have one yet. (I have two, so he may have fixated on mine.)
To my surprise Guillermo Del Toro is behind this and I liked it so much I may have to by myself a copy!
