I have always been leery of spinoffs, especially ones that follow a franchise that's seemingly lost its way. Add to that a pair of directors who made the worst of the "Shrek" series -- the third film.

Let's just say, my expectations were pretty low, like in the bottom-of-the-kitty-litter-box low. So imagine my joy when "Puss in Boots" not only steps out from behind the cranky green ogre, but acts like he should have been in the limelight all along -- yes, a pleasant surprise, to say the least.
