Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Parents Guide

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Parents Guide

I was able to screen Puss in Boots: The Last Wish in order to write this Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Parents Guide. All opinions are my own.

I went to a screening of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish with my kids. First off, I have to say I was really excited to see that they made a second one after all these years (11 to be exact). I am a huge fan of both Selma Hayek (Soft Paws) and Antonio Banderas (Puss in Boots). They both did such a great job in this movie. It was also fun to hear Florence Pugh in this movie as the voice of Goldilocks.

The whole premise of the movie could have been very been there done that. But they added so many fantastic elements to the movie that brought new life, fun, and excitement to the film. There are only a few minutes of singing at the beginning, which I also thought was points in their favor.

I genuinely loved the movie. There were several laugh-out-loud moments as well as other relatable emotional trials that the characters go through. You will see great character development as your kids will see important lessons manifest throughout the movie. Some of them are valuing the quality of the time you have and not how much. Be grateful for what you have. The value and importance of friendship and respect.

There is some crude humor and a little language. But most littles won’t understand the jokes and all the kids thought the scenes with the bleeped-out swears were hilarious. This is a fantastic family movie that has all the elements that you want in a movie.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Parents Guide

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is rated PG for action/violence, rude humor/language, and some scary moments. It runs for 1hr and 40m.

There are no end-credit scenes for Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. There is a little audio blip at the end, but not worth staying for. As soon as the credits start rolling – you are good to head out.

Sex & Nudity –  0/5 – None. It talks a little about Puss in Boots needing to be groomed (also talks about a rectal thermometer). It shows him standing to pee on a toilet, and then getting sent to the litter box. It talks about dingleberries (and references a boy bear having them). A character gets his belt cut and his pants fall down. Underwear is shown. It shows an old lady in the tub bathing the cat (it’s humorous). Lots of bubbles (you can barely see faces).

Violence & Gore – 1/5 – There is a lot of cartoon fighting. Nothing graphic. It does show blood a couple of times. Once when Puss in Boots is cut. Another from the dog’s nose. The show’s a person on fire. A unicorn horn is shot and hit a character’s butt, it explodes and turns them into confetti.

Profanity – 1/5 – 1 use of hell. Several bleeped-out swears by the dog and a couple by Soft Paws. Says a few things

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking – 0/5 – Shows Puss In Boots drinking cream (milk) at a bar (like beer would be). References “do you have anything stronger).

Frightening & Intense Scenes – 1/5 – The wolf (death) can be kind of frightening. Several intense scenes but nothing overall scary or too bad for kids. A flower eats a person and leaves the skeleton standing in it’s place.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is the perfect family movie. Plenty of humor for adults and cuteness and action for the kids. There were people of all ages at the screening and all of them enjoyed it. Go see it with your family this weekend.

About Puss in Boots: The Last Wish:

For the first time in more than a decade, DreamWorks Animation presents a new adventure in the Shrek universe as daring outlaw Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for peril and disregard for safety have taken their toll. Puss has burned through eight of his nine lives, though he lost count along the way. Getting those lives back will send Puss in Boots on his grandest quest yet. 

Academy Award® nominee Antonio Banderas returns as the voice of the notorious PiB as he embarks on an epic journey into the Black Forest to find the mythical Wishing Star and restore his lost lives. But with only one life left, Puss will have to humble himself and ask for help from his former partner and nemesis: the captivating Kitty Soft Paws (Oscar® nominee Salma Hayek). 

In their quest, Puss and Kitty will be aided—against their better judgment—by a ratty, chatty, relentlessly cheerful mutt, Perro (Harvey Guillén, What We Do in the Shadows). Together, our trio of heroes will have to stay one step ahead of Goldilocks (Oscar® nominee Florence Pugh, Black Widow) and the Three Bears Crime Family, “Big” Jack Horner (Emmy winner John Mulaney, Big Mouth) and terrifying bounty hunter, The Big Bad Wolf (Wagner Moura, Narcos).

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish features an all-star comedic cast that includes Oscar® winner Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone (Black Widow), Samson Kayo (Sliced), Emmy nominee Anthony Mendez (Jane the Virgin) and Tony nominee Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Trolls World Tour).  

The long-awaited follow-up to the 2011 Academy Award®-nominated blockbuster, The Last Wish is directed by Joel Crawford and produced by Mark Swift, the creative team behind DreamWorks Animation’s smash, The Croods: A New Age. The film’s executive producer is Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri. 

The character of Puss in Boots first appeared in 2004’s Oscar®-nominated Shrek 2 and instantly became a global, scene-stealing sensation. Puss then co-starred in two other Shrek sequels and his solo film, as well as in multiple DreamWorks Animation videos and TV series. The Shrek and Puss in Boots films have collectively earned more than $3.5 billion worldwide.
