At the same time, Puss makes a brotherhood with Humpty Dumpty, another orphan. Humpty dreams of finding magic beans that will grow into a bean stalk leading to the clouds where the golden goose lives. The golden goose is able to produce golden eggs, a rare and rich find. Humpty would love to have those eggs. So, with the help of Puss, he invents ways to steal so one day he can steal a golden egg.
In a land of fairy stories an orphaned kitten voiced by Antonio Banderas is taken in by a kindly woman voiced by Constance Marie. He earns his boots as an award for bravery in the village, but as he grows up, he is tricked by a greedy Humpty A.

A male cat flirts several times with a female cat, purring in a deep voice and winking at her. In a cat dance club, a male cat winks at female cats and blows kisses at them causing some to faint. A male cat attempts to kiss a female cat and kisses a baby bird instead.

Posted on Friday, October 28th, by Germain Lussier. Most of us probably rolled our eyes in disgust when we heard the news the cat from the Shrek movies was getting his own movie. We probably snickered through the trailers or joked at the posters and, up until the lights when down in the theater, that was my mindset. I was not looking forward to Puss in Boots. When the lights came up, though, the cat got me. Puss in Boots is way funnier and more exciting than it has any right to be. The characters are dynamic, the adventure sprawling and the humor is, at times, incredibly adult.
