Consensus: It isn't deep or groundbreaking, but what it lacks in profundity, Puss in Boots more than makes up for with an abundance of wit, visual sparkle, and effervescent charm.

'Puss in Boots' is uneven, but when it's on course, cat fans will be in heaven.

An almost purr-fect little film that even a dog owner can enjoy.

It doesn't rely on annoying pop references or scenes of shameless schmaltz. Credit is probably due to executive producer Guillermo del Toro.

The moment that Puss made his debut in Shrek 2, dramatically voiced by Antonio Banderas, and all but walked away with the picture, it was clear that DreamWorks Animation had created a resonant character.

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.

The tight, focused script ensures that the crazier aspects of the film aren't superfluous and don't distract from the characters' main quest. It's also jam-packed full of hilarious jokes.

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.

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.

Puss in Boots may be shameless in the way it attempts to woo us through the cute appeal of its feline stars, but it goes a long way to making this film irresistible.
