The adorable sidekick who stole scenes from the sequels to Shrek is given his own film, in an adventure that provides the back story leading up to his first encounter with the ogre and the donkey.  once again voices, with equal measures wit and warmth, the feline superhero who makes an enemy of Humpty Dumpty in his attempt to steal Jack and Jill’s magic beans for his own benefit. On the road to success he is challenged by the prowess of Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek), the declawed adventuress whose desire to get the booty for herself makes our protagonist’s life difficult as he is drawn to her like the world’s most potent catnip. Lots of puns both visual and verbal, terrific animation and a plot that bounces along quickly will thrill the kids and give the grown-ups a few moments of passing fun.
