Goofs

When Kitty softpaws, Humpty and puss are in the giants cloud lair, the high altitude causes their voices to raise in pitch, Humpty explains that is caused by the low pressure due to the height. However, when the trio exit the lair (when they are falling) their voices are normal in pitch and somehow not high at all. See more »

Puss in Boots is another entertaining Dreamworks animated movie
29 October 2011 | by tavmSee all my reviews

From the Shrek movies comes the Puss in Boots character voiced by Antonio Banderas with all the charm one expects from the character with the addition of Kitty Softpaws (Selma Hayek) and Humpty Alexander Dumpty (Zack Galifianakis) also joining for a fun ride of trying to avoid being pursued by Jack (Billy Bob Thornton) and Jill (Amy Sedaris). Many funny scenes and lines but also much dramatically compelling close calls abound especially in 3-D. Many amusing mixups of various fairy tales with "Jack and the Beanstalk" being mostly used as source. If you were among the disappointed (I wasn't by the way) when watching the last 2 Shrek movies, this one may make you forgive the Dreamworks animation factory. So on that note, I highly recommend Puss in Boots.
