Review | Puss in Boots

Us Rating: **1/2

Opens: Friday 10/28

Thanks to lively 3-D action and a frisky attitude, this Shrek spinoff is prime catnip for kids. But adults will scratch their heads at the bizarro plot. Here, the amorous feline (voiced with delight by Antonio Banderas) becomes a fugitive after getting betrayed by a devious, whiny Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis). Their squabbles -- which date back to childhood! -- last nearly 90 minutes. Shrek himself could have settled the whole thing in two.
