Wanting to break up the couple, the King enlists the help of Puss in Boots. Rated PG for some crude humor, a brief substance reference and some suggestive content, running time 93 minutes.

'Troy'

Starring Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom, Rose Byrne, Peter O'Toole, Brian Cox and Diane Kruger. Set in ancient Greece, this is a historical epic based on "The Iliad," the Greek poet Homer's account of the Trojan War. Paris, the prince of Troy, begins an affair with Helen, the queen of Sparta. King Menalaus takes this as a terrible insult, both to him and his brother, Agamemnon, king of the Myceneans. Agamemnon unites the populations of Greece to bring Helen back from Troy. He also wants to expand his empire and forms an alliance with Achilles, a warrior who hungers for glory and power, to bring down the walled city, which is defended by Prince Hector.
