In this prequel to the Shrek films, Puss (the voice of Antonio Banderas) is out to clear his name after accidentally helping old friend Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) with a crime in their hometown. Humpty and Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) come to Puss with an idea that can help him; however, everything is not quite as it seems. Filled to the brim with animated kitties, this movie may just be the most-adorable damn thing ever. The original idea was for this to be a direct-to-DVD release, and the story feels a bit rushed, but when there are tons of cute animals and some really great adult-themed jokes, who cares? It’s extremely entertaining and better than most of the crap being released today, animated or otherwise.
