Now if you are familiar with your childhood fairy-tales, the basic premise of the movie is that Puss (in Boots) along with Humpty Alexander Dumpty, and Ms. Kitty South-Paws start an adventurous trek to obtain some magic beans in order to provide access to the goose that lays the golden eggs. And yes, there just may be a beanstalk involved.
I really can't tell you any details about this movie without risking spoiling a scene or two, but I will let you know that Humpty Alexander Dumpty, voiced by The Hangover star Zach Galifianakis, is a pivotal character in this movie along with Jack and Jill. Although I think you may find yourself quite surprised by the movie version of these two compared to their pail of water exploits from the fairy tales. Another new character is Ms. Kitty Soft-Paws voiced by the beautiful Salma Hayek, who by the way does an outstanding job as Puss' love interest/nemesis.Read more ›
There are several things that this movie could've totally blown but got spot-on right. The creators made the right move in focusing on one character from the Shrek movies in his own feature, and they definitely made the right choice of characters - Puss is likeable and amusing and has enough substance to pull of the lead role. As a music lover, I was particularly pleased with the flamenco-ish soundtrack (featuring Rodrigo & Gabriela) that added to the overal cultural flavor, as opposed to the modern pop music of Shrek. Similarly, the "Zorro" similarities with the title character was matched with a Mexican setting and appropriate accents (except by the annoying American accent of Humpty Dumpty, which dind't fit in at all, and I don't remember any explanation in the movie of why someone raised from a small child in an orphanage would not have the same accent as those he grew up around). The movie didn't try to fit in innapropriate references to characters that didn't belong (as in, for example, "Muppet Babies", where a bunch of characters we'd seen meet for the first time as adults are now seen hanging out as children). So, you won't see Shrek or Donkey, but Puss does just fine on his own (and the movie maybe flows a little better without the increasingly over-the-top slapstick of the later Shrek films). In fact, this movie definitely has a different feel than Shrek, with a little less of a focus on mixing modern pop-culture references with a fantasy setting, although those elements are still there.
Definitely worth watching and I hope it spawns a series of films of its own.
