Puss in Boots (2011)

This is a solid movie. While visiting a town, Puss (Antonio Banderas) learns that Jack (Billy Bob Thornton) and Jill are in possession of the magic beans he has been seeking. They are the only way to reach the land of the giants in the clouds and the goose that lays golden eggs. Puss tries to retrieve the beans from the outlaws' room, but is interrupted by masked burglar Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek). He follows her to a lair and runs into Humpty Dumpty. The three of them decide to work together to snatch the beans.

The film is a spinoff prequel to Shrek 2. The feature film was partly made in India to save on labor costs. It set a new record for the highest Halloween weekend opening. During the second week of play, revenues only fell 3%, which is the smallest non-Holiday decline for a film available in over 2,500 theaters.
