Puss in Boots more than makes up for with an abundance of wit, visual sparkle, and effervescent charm.”
Amy Biancolli of the Houston Chronicle awarded the film a score of three out of five and stated, “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.”
Newark Star-Ledger’s Stephen Whitty gave a rating of three out of four and declared, “An almost purr-fect little film that even a dog owner can enjoy.”
Due to Puss’ irresistible cuteness and actions, no one can skip seeing the cute little Puss’s legendary, mythical and historical journey.
