Where the visuals fail, the script does not pick up the slack. [The] screenplay plods along, and not even the occasional prison-rape joke can make it come to life.

Nothing new, nothing strange, absolutely nothing unexpected, even for a five-year-old.

Most of the jokes fit into two categories: "Ha ha, he's Spanish" and "Ha ha, he's a cat".

Our expectations have not been satisfied; the character of Puss in Boots has been diminished, the story is trite and meaningless and the hero's journey we expected is a lame duck

A milquetoast homunculi assembled by the most hackneyed form of studio groupthink imaginable.

... while the story has many tricks, there's little magic ...

Puss in Boots is a great opportunity squandered, which is all the more ironic considering the plot involves a golden goose.

Labors to create an alternate history from childhood treasures; I'll keep mine the way I remember them, thanks.

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.

The supporting character from 'Shrek' is made the star of his own movie with stretched out results

Where are Shrek, Fiona and—gulp—Donkey when you need them?

For the most part, the stale wisecracks are on the order of "First rule of Bean Club: You do not talk about Bean Club."

Supporting characters are sometimes best left as just that.

Even for a Shrek spin-off, Puss In Boots is mighty thin gruel, based more in outsized emotion than actual narrative.

As handsome as any animated movie you can name, but it doesn't even have the slick, narrative efficiency of one of the Kung Fu Panda movies.

Who needs a narrative when you've got a few funny lines (caught with catnip, Puss declares it's "for my glaucoma"), a Morricone knockoff score and a climactic sequence with something we'll call Goosezilla?

A 2D comedy shown with technology to make you believe you're seeing something you're not. And one of the things you're not seeing - or, rather, hearing - is witty dialogue.

In the Shrek films, the joke of Puss in Boots, with his trilled consonants and penchant for chest-puffing sword duels, is that no one this cuddly should try to be this dashing. But in Puss in Boots, that joke wears out its welcome in 15 minutes.
