Wow, who would have thought that Puss in Boots would crush Tintin, Arthur Christmas, and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked? If you'd made that prediction six months ago, you would have been laughed out of town.

Not me, Puss is a great little film. Funny, great art direction and on a more controlled budget. Dreamworks has been on a tear since the first Kung Fu Panda. Good for them, and great for the masses they employ.
