Puss In Boots (Imax 3-D)

Awwww. This is just about perfect- the animation, the story, the beloved Puss in Boots from Shrek.  It's a "before Puss was in Shrek" background story. And it is great. Just great. I only had 10 people in the audience with me, and they didn't laugh out loud- but they didn't look like the types to get the jokes that were from such movies as Fight Club, etc. If you love cats, you'll get the same visceral reaction to an animated cat as you would from a real one. Antonio Banderas is the voice of Puss and Zack Galifianakis is the voice of Humpty Dumpty.  Salma Hayak provides the sultry voice of Kitty Softpaws. The first half is slower than the second, and the second half is far funnier. Stay for the animated credits- short but fun.  I can't imagine someone giving this film a bad review- even if they are cat haters! I really enjoyed the IMAX 3D. If you get the chance to see it that way, do so. I give it 4 stars because on a rainy, cold and miserable Seattle day, it is just what you need to cheer up!
