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

The greatest fairy tale never told.

This is not your average family cartoon. “Shrek” is jolly and wicked, filled with sly in-jokes and yet somehow possessing a heart. All that work has paid off: The movie is an astonishing visual delight, with animation techniques that seem lifelike and fantastical, both at once. No animated being has ever moved, breathed or had its skin crawl quite as convincingly as Shrek, and yet the movie doesn’t look like a reprocessed version of the real world.

The story follows Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers, who utilizes his Fat Bastard voice from the Austin Powers movie into the role). Shrek is an ogre who lives in a swamp surrounded by “Keep Out” and “Beware the Ogre!” signs. He wants only to be left alone, perhaps because he is not such an ogre after all but merely a lonely creature with an infer...

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 ...

WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY SWAMP?

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...
