In the animated movie PUSS IN BOOTS: THE LAST WISH, Puss in Boots realizes he’s on his last life and needs to find the Last Wish star to ask for more lives. However, Puss isn’t the only one searching for the Last Wish. Goldilocks and the three bears and selfish Jack Horner are also looking. Puss teams up with a friendly, optimistic dog and Kitty Softpaws, whom he almost married. Kitty doesn’t trust Puss, though, because he’s been very selfish in the past. Will Puss overcome his selfish ways, win back Kitty and get the Last Wish?
Funny and exciting, PUSS IN BOOTS: THE LAST WISH is well made, with interesting animation. The movie has a strong Christian, moral worldview where Puss in Boots must learn to be less selfish and egotistical, think of others above himself and realize he’s not invincible. Another character realizes the value of loving her family. THE LAST WISH also has a priest character and a reference to church. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children, because the Angel of Death and some other characters are scary.

Puss in Boots has big energy and can fight anything to save the day. When a giant comes after the town, he kills the giant, but dies also. When he wakes up, he finds out he’s on his last life and has a battle with the Angel of Death, who tells Puss he has it out for him.
Like never before, Puss is scared for his life and decides to go hide away in a cat house with a woman who has collected hundreds of stray cats. While there, he meets Perro, a dog who came to the house because he was an orphan. Soon after, Goldilocks and the three bears come to the house and try to find Puss to bring him on an arrest warrant.
Puss gets away, but Perro follows him too. The two find out that there is a wishing star, the Last Wish, that will grant Puss more lives. Unfortunately, he isn’t the only after the star, as Goldilocks wants the star to help her have a normal family. Also, Jack Horner, the boy known for sticking his thumb in pies, is a collector of all the magical elements in fairy tales. He has grown into a huge man, who’s constantly eating pie and is extremely selfish. Jack also wants the Last Wish.
As Puss is trying to find the Last Wish with Perro, he runs into Kitty Softpaws, his former fiancé. Kitty isn’t happy to see Puss and does not trust his actions, but the three team up to try to get to the Last Wish. Puss was always very selfish with Kitty and put himself first in the relationship. But as Puss and Kitty are spending time together, Puss is thinking he made a mistake running away from her at the altar.
Will Puss find the Last Wish before Jack Horner, Goldilocks and the three bears? Will Kitty ever forgive Puss for leaving her at the altar and being completely selfish?

The title character must learn to turn away from his ego and selfish behavior and help others. Also, one of the villains is extremely selfish, and this is seen as bad. The other characters, Goldilocks and three bears, show an example of a family that loves each other. PUSS IN BOOTS: THE LAST WISH does have some scary points in it. For example, the Angel of Death is very scary. The story also shows that Puss doesn’t have eternal life and his life should be spent with the ones he loves rather than boasting about himself all the time. THE LAST WISH also has a priest character and a reference to church. Finally, some of the journey in THE LAST WISH is reminiscent of PILGRIM’S PROGRESS where each character must deal with their own sins and worries.
