“Puss in Boots” and “Tower Heist”

When “Puss in Boots” came out a couple weeks ago, we took two of our grandsons to see it. Because of the previews and because we liked Puss from the Shrek movies, we were disappointed. Although the boys really enjoyed it, Danny and I were expecting it to be funnier. The plot was not an attention-grabber; the script left much to be desired. I’m glad we did not go without them, because we would have felt foolish.

Rating: 2.8 out of 5 stars.

Yesterday afternoon, along with only nine other people in the theater, we watched “Tower Heist,” and it was better than expected. Although some parts were quite preposterous, we were quite pleased to get through the whole movie without hearing any cussing. What a concept! (Stiller, Murphy, and Broderick seem to have aged a bit since last seeing them in anything, but that’s irrelevant.) There would be little comedy in this action-comedy without Eddie Murphy. Everytime I see Matthew Broderick, I wish he would get out in the sun more. As for Ben Stiller, I think it may be time for him to try a dramatic role for a change. The plot? Oh, the usual – big bad guy vs little good guys.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.
