First things first. I will attempt to avoid any spoilers if you, lovely readers, will forgive me if I give away more information than you were looking for.
Dreamworks’ latest creation, Puss in Boots, follows the swashbuckling past and present of one of Shrek’s most memorable characters – Puss. No surprise there, Elaine! Tell us something we didn’t know already… Well, one thing I didn’t know prior to seeing the film is that no prior knowledge of Shrek is at all necessary for getting every joke in the film; in fact, Puss in Boots seems to exist in a world where Puss has not yet met Shrek. Instead, the Puss’ quest in Puss in Boots involves finding the magic beans (of Jack and the Beanstalk fame) that can lead him, Humpty Dumpty, and Kitty Soft Paws to the golden goose. With the riches laid by the golden goose, Puss can pay back a debt from his youth and stop living as an outlaw.
