Storyline

A cat belonging to a poor miller's son thinks up a great plan for bringing a title, wealth, and marriage for his owner. He begins to carry it out, using a few birds and rabbits as gifts for the king, his own wit, and a pair of boots that make him appear human when he puts them on. However, his owner has no idea that the cat has told everyone that his master is a marquis rather than a miller's son until the king has arrived to meet him. Soon the king's daughter and the miller's son fall in love, and the king wants very much to see the land and the castle belonging to this rich "marquis." Written by Pav

Christopher Walken Sings!!
26 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Corin (Jason, son of Sean Connery) is a poor miller's son. When the old man dies, all that he leaves him is a house cat. The cat appears as human to him, and keeps asking for a pair of boots. Once the cat gets the boots, he become Puss in Boots (Christopher Walken). Through wit and subterfuge, Puss passes Corin off as an important Marquis so that he could marry the princess. Then Puss takes on a ruthless shape shifting ogre who commands a great castle.

Sure this is a weak production. The special effects come from 100 years ago. The costumes and sets are gaudy. Christopher Walken is what makes this stand out. He sings. He dances. He dominates the movie. I wish he had more opportunity to play Puss as a cat. Puss is a bit of a dark character. He lies a lot. And it goes to a really dark place with the ogre. It's a dark little kiddie movie.
