This movie is a great balance between keeping kids entertained, and having a real story that adults find compeling, not to mention the harmless but funny jokes that go strait over kids' heads

Too Much Formula, Not Enough Parody

Shrek- like the Dreamworks CGI film that preceded it, Antz- attempts to target an older audience in comparison to competing companies like Disney and Pixar. And yet, curiously enough, most of Shrek's jokes are just plain childish. Surely the absurd amount of gross-out gags contained within the the first 5 minutes of the film weren't meant to entertain adults, were they? Yes, there is some edgy content that will appeal more to adults, and some humor that kids won't get, but for the most part, nearly everything contained within Shrek is just kids stuff. And pretty weak kids stuff at that.

Shrek is sort of a parody to the classic Disney films, and various fairy-tales. Shrek, an ogre, has his swamp suddenly populated with fairy-tale characters. Furious, Shrek complains to the person ...

Our titular character (voiced brilliantly by Mike Myers) is a terrifying ogre who just wants to live his days in peace. When the tyrannical Lord Farquaad (voiced by John Lithgow) evicts local fairy tale creatures they settle in the ogre's swamp so Shrek makes a deal with him that if he rescues Princess Fiona, he'll him his swamp back.

A quest of sorts starts for Shrek and his new pal, a talking donkey (played brilliantly by Eddie Murphy), where battles have to be won and a beautiful princess (Cameron Diaz) must be rescued from a fire breathing dragon! We soon find out that Fiona is under a curse that can only be broken by true love kiss. Shrek is an interesting character for he is not your stereotypical hero as he is very unwilling and only going on this quest for a rather selfish rea...

Shrek review

A film that mixed with popular fairy tale stories and a few moral lessons to boot. Unlike today's dark fairy tale influenced movies, this is fun with a real moral lesson that can be enjoyed by the whole family. This franchise succeeds because of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy's earnest voice-overs and attachment to their respective characters shown on the DVD extras. The humor is really good and the animation is life-like. Adding a few twists to the classic stories brought in a few more laughs. A unique formula that really worked. One of the best lines from the film - Shrek - "Stop singing! Well, it's no wonder you don't have any friends. " Donkey - "Wow! Only a true friend would be that truly honest." Shrek is for repeat viewings and has cool special features on the DVD...
