Puss in Boots (PG; 90 min.) Puss in Boots (based on the Shrek character) goes wrong where prequels usually do, by changing the nature of the characters we love in the name of fleshing them out. Naturally, though, there are sweet lines (“Fear me if you dare,” Puss threatens) and some lovely sequences, such as the characters’ romp in the clouds outside the giant’s castle at the nether end of the beanstalk. But the plot is convoluted and doesn’t seem about something, the way a fairy tale has to be—it doesn’t have any resonance. Features the voices of Anotonio Banderas (as Puss), Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis and Billy Bob Thornton. (RvB) Revenge of the Electric Car (NR; 90 min.) Chris Paine, director of Who Killed the Electric Car?, provides his own update in new doc about the now brighter future of gasless autos. (NB)

Yet another lowcomedy franchise swiping the title from the late-’80s Brady Bunch reunion film. (NB)
