Puss in Boots

It's no easy trick giving a minor character a story substantial enough to warrant its own film (see: Cars 2: The Master Mistake).
But the Shrek spinoff Puss in Boots lands solidly by dosing a proven formula with new flavor.
Puss (Antonio Banderas) gets a lead on a legendary treasure: the goose that lays golden eggs atop Jack's beanstalk.
To get it, he'll need to team up with his shifty boyhood buddy Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and the bad egg's sidekick Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek).
