Puss In Boots Australian Premiere Coming Up At Sydney's Entertainment Quarter, by Eva Rinaldi - 15th November 2011

The Puss In Boots Australian premiere is sneaking up on us cats (and dogs), so we thought we would give you an update that is quite the cat's meow.

It's close to pur fect time, with the holiday season coming up down under in Australia.

You can just imagine the line up of teen girls for this one (and no doubt bringing along their mums and friends for the ride).

Sydney media are going to be glued to the red carpet and big screen, and hopefully no kitty litter will be required for some of the more excitable media and fans.

Some media promotional blurb reads "A story about the events leading up to the sword fighting cat's meeting with Shrek and his friends", but that's making it sound too simple.

Vet's and the like will advise you that cats don’t like being sprayed in the face with water. It may go without saying, but most users of a litter box also don’t care to be smacked in the head with a guitar.

Fortunately, we have cartoons like “Puss in Boots” to swing the point home.

Some people know him as Frisky Two Times, some as the Chupacabra. But, most refer to him as Puss in Boots (voice of Antonio Banderas), a feline unlike any other, both because of his famous footwear and his well known cat fighting skills.

After appearing as a sidekick in three “Shrek” movies and numerous holiday specials, it’s great to see an expanded presentation of Banderas’ most beloved role, with Puss bearing more of a resemblance to the famous Zorro. His wicked sense of humour is loved by millions.

DreamWorks Animation and Paramount Pictures have done Puss justice with this production, and we hope the numbers are good for their beancounting friends.  Trust us, this is not a dog of a film.

The puss personality lends itself to fast-paced or is that fast footed adventure and hilarity, to put you and your cat in stitches. 

Puss in Boots is a well known entity, but this cat flick also comes across as fresh and very cool for cats.

Round up the kids of all ages and lick up the action at Puss In Boots. It's truly the cat's meow. 4 out of 5 paws.

*Movie premiere is 27th November at Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park, Sydney.
