Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"'Puss in Boots' is uneven, but when it's on course, cat fans will be in heaven."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"It would overstate matters to say Puss in Boots leaves its cat holding the bag (we had to get that in). But it also leaves its hero awaiting a richer fable, one befitting his charms and his portrayer's talents."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"A refreshing departure from the "Shrek" films, this animated comedy is jam-packed with witty dialogue and charismatic characters."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Banderas vocally vamps this up in ways he never gets to do in live action films."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
""Puss in Boots" is light, breezy family entertainment that [features] top-notch voice work from the entire cast."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Puss in Boots prances along on three basic truths. One, cats are funny. Two, vain Spanish cats in high-heeled musketeer boots are even funnier. Lastly, booted, vain Spanish cats voiced by a breathy Antonio Banderas are flat-out hilarious."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"The character may be here to save the day, but the movie's only here to pass the time and it does that just fine."
‑ William Goss, Film.com
"I like this cat. I hope they make four more of these. Viva el gato!"
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Bet the litter box that the cat in the hat will be back, Puss in Boots is fantastic family fun, both kids and adults will lap it up like a cold glass of milk."
‑ Erick Weber, NECN
"Puss in Boots delivers just the right mixture of fun, exciting and super cute."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"An almost purr-fect little film that even a dog owner can enjoy."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It's the morally-cracked Humpty who provides the film's emotional trajectory. Puss in Boots is a fun feline frolic -- with just a little egg on its face."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Finally, there's a cat even cooler than Garfield who will win the box office as well as a place on your favorites list. His name is Puss and he wears boots."
‑ Billy Tatum, We Got This Covered
"Puss offers strong CGI charisma, and with a tighter narrative focus than Shrek, it's safe to say that DreamWorks has another franchise-worthy golden goose."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"Clever and witty enough for adults and colorful and zany enough for children. Moreover, it's adventurous enough for anyone to like, no matter what their age."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
