DreamWorks’ casting of silky Antonio Banderas a swash-buckling cat pays off brilliantly in this film. There is sex appeal in every syllable, swagger in every line. And even kids get the joke of a voice that grand coming out of a kitty so small. Puss (Banderas) and his childhood pal Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) conspire to steal magic beans. Along the way, Puss has an epic flamenco dance-off with Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek). This is the best animated film of 2011.
