New interpretation of the classic fairytale about a clever cat (Richard M. Dumont) with magic boots. Though he is no gentleman, Puss 'n Boots (Dumont) helps Little Pete (Daniel Brochu) on a quest to win the heart of The Princess (Holly Gauthier-Frankel). The evil Chamberlain (Arthur Holden) also wants to marry The Princess and is willing to go to any lengths to win her hand, including turning her other suitors into toads.

It's an easy mistake to make, choosing this DVD over the better know version from Dreamworks with only one letter difference in the title. We did in the supermarket as we tried to get round as quickly as possible! As a result I'd start off by giving credit to Amazon for the title here stating clearly that it is NOT the Dreamworks version.

If you're a fan of French (or what I think of as more "arty") movies you'll probably enjoy this. If so, I also recommend you watch "Dragon Hunters". If not - AVOID!

We got about 20 minutes in before we gave up.

- The French take on the story line is dreadful
- The animation is average (at best)
- The singing princess is a pain and the songs are average (and in French)
- The dubbing isn't great

My advice, don't waste £4*. In fact NEVER BUY!

Nope, it isn't Dreamworks, but the attempt to a tell a story is ok. I like the art and the music in the film, because they used classical pieces. However, the cat is annoying and the story doesn't always flow perfectly. I think children would like this film, but I think adults will be too annoyed about the flaws. So, three stars from me. If only the makers of this film would work out the story a bit better, it would be a great film.

I read the reviews on this movie and it is clear what the movie is and what it isn't! Well I haven't watched anything as funny and entertaining in a LONG time! My two year old is OBSESSED with the movie and loves the songs which are based on traditional arias!
Amazing twist on a popular tail and very very funny! So not disney but who cares!

Firstly I don't think this film claims to be related to shrek in any way, Puss in boots is a very old story which was around long before shrek was.
secondly the film itself really wasn't that bad, the animation was ok and the story acceptable , it was obviously dubbed but this has been done quite well, My kids liked it and I'm sure most will, I thought it was pretty good to, not in the league of shrek but ok none the less.

OKAY PEOPLES!!THIS FILM IS NOT AND NEVER WILL BE DREAMWORKS'PUSS IN BOOTS'.I THINK IF YOU GET THAT OUT OF THE WAY TO BEGIN WITH,THEN YOU MAY WATCH IT A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY.I WATCHED 'PUSS' FROM DREAMWORKS[WONDERFUL,MARVELLOUS,SUPERB,AND ANTONIO BANDERAS ALSO!]AND LOVED,LOVED LOVED IT.I AM NOT SURE HOW YOU CAN MIX UP THIS FILM,FROM THE COVER,WITH THAT ONE.THE 'PUSS' IS NOTHING LIKE THE DREAMWORKS ONE TO EVEN LOOK AT.WELL,OKAY,THIS ONE IS KIND OF GINGER AND WEARS BOOTS,YES,AND A HAT---BUT CLEARLY NOT THE SAME.I CAN SEE HOW PEOPLE WOULD BE DISAPPOINTED IF YOU SAW THE 'BANDERAS PUSS' FIRST AND BEGAN COMPARISSONS--DONT.I FOUND THIS DVD WATCHABLE,AND ,YES,THIS PUSS DID HAVE SOME KIND OF STRANGE ACCENT[!]AND APPEARED TO BE A 'PUNK PUSS'[!!],BUT ITS NOT AS BAD AS SOME PEOPLE HAVE SAID,IN MY HUMBLE OPINION.JUST WATCH IT FOR WHAT IT IS---AND DONT EXPECT A 'DREAMWORKS' KITTY IN 'HIS WEE LITTLE BOOTS'TO APPEAR,BECAUSE YOU WILL BE WAITING A LONG TIME!!

Beautifully non-hollywood which may explain the low ratings. This is not a normal, custom plot and animation tactic film. It is weird and wonderful trippy expereince and you need to just let go and enjoy it in all its weirdness and see the beauty in the art.

One of the best family films. So refreshing to see animated characters with strong a personality. It's quite quirky and the music is lovely and hypnotic. We've watched it many times
