A Very Familiar Storyline
20 May 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

See if this doesn't sound familiar: A proclamation if offered, stating "Whosoever saves the princess from the nasty ogre, he shall marry her. Signed, The King."

Our hero - some human, not Puss or the smaller cats - of course wants to be that guy. We discover the ogre, through some magic liquid he sprays on people, has turned the princess into a small white bird, which he keep caged at home (like Tweety). The Ogre, meanwhile, looks just like you'd picture: hairy, ape-like, a mouth of half-missing teeth and big muscles. He grunts a lot, too.

A neat twist is what happens to the guy coming to rescue the princess, and then what happens to all three major characters when the felines come to the rescue. There are some odd scenes, such as the cats all jumping into the ogre's pants and scratching tic-tac-toe games on his butt! I'm serious.

The only thing that was kind of stupid was what the Ogre allowed to happen to himself. That made no sense and hurt the story.....not that it was believable, to begin with, but it wasn't stupid until that part.
