The team that created the 1998 film Antz brings us a witty computer-animated tall tale full of fanciful characters, poignant morals and sophisticated humor. When the ugly green ogre Shrek (Mike Myers) finds his swamp infiltrated by the likes of Tinkerbell, the Piped Piper and the Big Bad Wolf due to the banishment of all fairytale characters from the local kingdom (a remarkable model and pardoy of the Magic Kingdom) he becomes desperate for privacy. Shrek strikes a deal with the Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) to rescue a forlorn princess trapped in a dragon-guarded castle in exchange for the reinstatement of his quiet life in the swamp. Accompanied by a pesky talking donkey (Eddie Murphy), the diverse duo sets out to bring the headstrong Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) back for the selfish short-stack lord to attempt to quell his severe short-man's complex. An unforgettable journey of computer animation that is certainly most entertaining for an adult viewer.
