Cat in Boots


Shrek spin-off is fluffy and forgettable Discuss this article

Having squeezed every possible penny out of mean green monster Shrek, DreamWorks now drops a spotlight on its most popular second-stringer, the swashbuckling lothario introduced in Shrek 2 (and renamed for a Middle Eastern audience). The little guy’s secret weapon was always those enormous, pleading peepers, and this starring vehicle plays the same angle. If the mere sight of a cat with leather footwear puts you in stitches, boy does Cat in Boots have your number. Antonio Banderas reprises the title role, yet proves incapable of transforming this one-note character into more than the plush-doll Zorro parody he’s always been.
