The weekend is here and if you’re planning on enjoying a family movie this weekend, you’re in luck because the much-anticipated Dreamworks hit Puss in Boots is now available in both Double DVD and Blu-Ray Combo Packs today! Here’s a brief synopsis of the film:
You loved him in Shrek…now see where the one-and-only swashbuckling feline found his fame – and a very big pair of boots – in the “hilariously funny” (Associated Press) animated epic! Lover, fighter and outlaw Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) is off on the adventure of his nine lives as he teams up with Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) and Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) for the ultimate showdown with the notorious Jack and Jill (Billy Bob Thorton, Amy Sedaris). Here’s the true story of The Cat, The Myth, The Legend – Puss in Boots!
I don’t know who was more excited to watch this movie: my son or my husband! They sat down to watch the DVD together and I couldn’t help but smile at how absorbed they were. Zackary, at five years old, is the perfect age for this type of movie. He loves the physical humour, is able to understand a few of the verbal jokes and really gets involved in the plot. In fact, he had a bit of a hard time at one point because one of the “good guys” turned out to actually be one of the “bad guys.” He looked at me with such a stricken expression and said, “Mom, why is he being mean?”
“Honey, it’s just a movie,” I said. “Sometimes movies have parts like that to make it more interesting to watch.” Fortunately, he found that explanation acceptable and was soon laughing again as Puss in Boots thwarted a bumbling guard to make a daring escape.
When the movie was over, Zackary insisted on putting on the included all-new adventure Puss in Boots: The Three Diablos. This fun bonus DVD is only eleven minutes long, but it’s big on entertainment! Zackary loved watching Puss face off against the Cat Whisperer and insisted on watching the bonus DVD at least four times in a row!
