What kids will get from it is plenty of fairly outrageous but not often witty fun with fairytale elements blended into a kind of latterday spaghetti western. For the rest of us, there is plenty of nice visual detail.

It's all amiable stuff, with a perfectly decent script, and the feline hero lapping his milk gets an indulgent laugh.

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

Puss in Boots is very jolly for an hour. Then, like Santa Claus misjudging a chimney, it gets stuck at the moment we hope it will break free and distribute the festive gifts.

this western-parodying cat-with-too-many-names is closer to Rango than to anything from the Kingdom of Far Far Away.

'Puss in Boots' is uneven, but when it's on course, cat fans will be in heaven.

The moment that Puss made his debut in Shrek 2, dramatically voiced by Antonio Banderas, and all but walked away with the picture, it was clear that DreamWorks Animation had created a resonant character.

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.

An almost purr-fect little film that even a dog owner can enjoy.

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.

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.

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.

Almost shockingly good. And not just because a lot of you will approach it with lowered expectations.

With his impeccable comic timing and lyrical Spanish accent, Banderas' swashbuckling charmer is an undeniable treat.

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.

A cheerfully chaotic jumble of fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters parachuted into a Spanish storybook setting.

Perhaps the most engaging thing about "Puss in Boots" is that it never takes itself too seriously.

Puss made his debut in "Shrek 2," then did time in the two decreasingly funny sequels. Now he's got a movie of his own, and not a moment too soon.

It's always a pleasure to find a family film that respects its audience all the way up the line.

"Puss in Boots'' doesn't break any new ground in the storytelling department, and its reliance on go-go-go state-of-the-art action sequences grows wearying by the end, but the movie has a devilish wit that works for parent and child alike...
