'Shrek' was the anti-Disney fairytale movie that won many over with it's brashness and heart. 'Shrek 2' is more like a Disney fairytale story with a Shrek spin. The story and plot take a hit from this change-up, giving us typical character problem tropes that don't matter much in the end. There's also triple the amount of jokes this time. Some are hilarious, while others rely too much on references and randomness. There are still many great moments sprinkled throughout, mostly from the awesome new characters. A worthy, if not problematic, sequel.
