You guys know me. So you also know that I've been eager, in spite of myself, to see Puss In Boots. You will not likely be surprised to learn that, also perhaps in spite of myself, I was not disappointed by the film. My review for MSN Movies is at least partially a sort of apologia.
You may have noticed that a lot of Shakespeare scholars have been getting their tights in a twist over Anonymous, and I don't blame them, but I don't think the film's ridiculous reiteration of a long-discredited Bad Idea is going to gain any traction with The Kids. And speaking of The Kids, Like Crazy is, I thought, a relatively impressive and forthright account of love among such sorts, and may be worth your time.
