Critic Reviews

  • Anna Smith, Time Out
    'Puss in Boots' is uneven, but when it's on course, cat fans will be in heaven.
  • Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
    Puss in Boots prances along on three basic truths. One, cats are funny. Two, vain Spanish cats in high-heeled musketeer boots are even funnier. Lastly, booted, vain Spanish cats voiced by a breathy Antonio Banderas are flat-out hilarious.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    An almost purr-fect little film that even a dog owner can enjoy.
  • Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
    It would overstate matters to say Puss in Boots leaves its cat holding the bag (we had to get that in). But it also leaves its hero awaiting a richer fable, one befitting his charms and his portrayer's talents.
  • William Goss,
    The character may be here to save the day, but the movie's only here to pass the time and it does that just fine.
  • Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
    It's the morally-cracked Humpty who provides the film's emotional trajectory. Puss in Boots is a fun feline frolic -- with just a little egg on its face.
  • Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
    Almost shockingly good. And not just because a lot of you will approach it with lowered expectations.
  • Claudia Puig, USA Today
    With his impeccable comic timing and lyrical Spanish accent, Banderas' swashbuckling charmer is an undeniable treat.
  • Lou Lumenick, New York Post
    Basically, this toon is a tired riff on Sergio Leone's spaghetti Westerns, punctuated by more puns and cat jokes than you can shake a litter box at.
  • Stephen Holden, New York Times
    A cheerfully chaotic jumble of fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters parachuted into a Spanish storybook setting.
