A bit hit! Kids love the characters, especially Eddie Murphy's talking and singing donkey with his potty humor. Without exception, they all wanted to watch it again. Some scenes are too scary for youngest kids. This one's a keeper! Put it into your library.
Such an incredible film. Delightful satire. Excellent computer animation. Traditional fairy tales are satirized gender stereotypes are pulverized and all result in a, much appreciated happy and surprising ending. Encourages self esteem and loving people for who they really are. Some minor violence and naughtiness, like the potty humor which kids uproariously laugh at and makes adults cringe.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Shrek! In this fully computer-animated fantasy from the creators of Antz, we follow the travails of Shrek (Mike Myers), a green ogre who enjoys a life of solitude. Living in a far away swamp, he is suddenly invaded by a hoard of fairy tale characters, such as the Big Bad Wolf, the Three Little Pigs, and Three Blind Mice, all refugees of their homes who have been shunned by the evil Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). They want to save their homes from ruin, and enlist the help of Shrek, who is in the same situation. Shrek decides to offer Lord Farquaad a deal; he will rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), who is intended to be Farquaad's bride. Accompanying Shrek on his adventure is the faithful but loquacious Donkey (Eddie Murphy), who has a penchant for crooning pop songs. The two must face various obstacles in order to locate the Princess, but they find their world challenged when she reveals a dark secret that will affect the group. Shrek is based on the children's book by William Steig, and features additional voice-work by Vincent Cassel, Cody Cameron, and Kathleen Freeman.
