Skip all the numerous extras on this two-disc set and go right to Shrek's Re-Voice Studio on the DVD-ROM. Here fans can dub their voices to the character lines with magical precision. This first-of-its-kind feature is a dandy, easy to set up with clear instructions. It's also a kick in the pants. The ROM portion also contains the best of the many games. Other extras go from ho-hum (the DVD games) to standard (the 25-minute, behind-the-scenes featurette). Fake interviews with the cast are fun as is the karaoke party containing new animation, but contain only half the wit of the movie's shenanigans. It doesn't matter, though, since you're going to head back to the Re-Voice Studio again and again. --Doug Thomas
