Product Description

The Christmas tree isn’t the only thing green in this new holiday classic. Shrek is back and trying to get into the spirit of the season. After promising Fiona and the kids a Christmas they’ll remember, he is forced to take a crash course in the holiday. But just when he thinks he has everything for their quiet family Christmas just right, Donkey, Puss in Boots, Gingy and the rest of the gang decide to crash the party. Shrek the Halls is the greatest holiday tale that’s never been told…until now.

Amazon.com

Despite its 22-minute run time, Shrek the Halls (originally written as a half-hour TV special), is packed with plenty of laughs and holiday cheer. The animation is rich, and the character interplay among all the folks we know and love--Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots--endearing and spot-on. Shrek wants to throw the "perfect Christmas" for Fiona and the kids, but as an ogre, has no Yule experience. So he starts at the local bookstore, where a winsome clerk (voiced by Marissa Jaret Winokur) quickly sizes up Shrek's hapless situation and pronounces: "I know all about Christmas, and I have just the book for you: 'Christmas for Village Idiots.'" Shrek becomes so focused on doing the holiday "by the book" that he fails to notice the magic and comradely chaos unfolding all around him. Fiona, for instance, has some neat tricks for making holiday decorations (watch how she turns a festively striped snake into the perfect candy cane). The kids are happily frolicking with the kids of Donkey and everyone else in the village--but the commotion is too much for Shrek, who snaps. Will his ogrely hissy fit ruin Christmas--and make him overlook the meaning of Christmas that can't be found in a book? Even viewers who might guess the answer will enjoy the trip, including competing versions of "A Visit from St. Nicholas," better known as "The Night Before Christmas." Puss's version: "He was dressed all in fur / From his head to his paws / And he stood there heroic, / A real Santa... Claws." And the film is full of cute references to holiday classics like "It's a Wonderful Life" ("Excuse you for what?" barks Shrek after one of his kids does a dainty Fiona belch knockoff). Even bit players get big laughs, like the three German pigs, ready to have a Christmas Eve sleepover. One points out to his brothers: "Look! We are pigs, ja? Und we are in a blanket, ja? It's funny, ja?" Ja! Warning to parents: There is one scary, almost gruesome scene that involves Santa Claus, but it's over quickly and then the film is back to its funny and heartwarming purpose. Extras include an animated sing-along "Twelve Days of Christmas" featurette as well as several holiday games to keep the tykes engaged after the last present is unwrapped. --A.T. Hurley

1st off, Shrek The Halls itself is hilarious! Very well done, probably better material than what was in the 2nd & 3rd films. My gripe is absolutely with the dvd itself & its pricepoint. $17.99 (or $19.99 retail)for only 22 MINUTES worth of cartoon is an absolute rip-off!

According to other online outlets, here is the list of features:
12 Days of Christmas Featurette
Deck the Halls Featurette
Gingy Dunking Game
Shrek Carnival Craze Video Game Demo & Cheat Code

That's it?! Sorry but I say just save your loot & rec'd it when ABC shows it 2-3 times this Holiday season. The cartoon is good but it ain't that good!

Ok, first of all ... it's Shrek. The adult-like inuendos and child-like references is right in line with the wit and charm of the entire Shrek series.
I TiVo'd this last year (2007) when it came out for the holidays on TV and I have kept it saved in TiVo this whole time. I watch it at least once a month! It ranks right up there with the three full-length moviews in the series.
Hysterically funny. You will have to rewind in certain parts because you'll be laughing so hard you'll miss some. :)
Great watch!
My only complaint is that it's not long enough ... the good ones never are ... ????
ENJOY as adults and/or with kids for the holidays. Good for lots of laughs!

I know a lot of fellow reviewers are upset with the price of this DVD, but I cannot let that mar the product. This was the most outstanding Christmas Special I have seen in close to twenty years. Most of the other Christmas Specials I own are from my very early childhood or classics from before I was born. This will become a family favorite for years to come. When I found out this was being released, I literally called my brother and he was as excited as I.

The humor appeals to children as well as adults in the same manner as the films. It spreads a message of togetherness and family unity for the holidays as only Shrek, Fiona, and company can. It has wonderful twists on holiday tales, songs, and traditions that keep you laughing until you're wiping away tears.

"Shrek the Halls" is sheer brilliance and a fat dose of holiday hilarity. Don't let the price scare you away. The years of laughs are well worth the price-tag - besides folks, "quality, not quantity."

DreamWorks' Shrek the Halls Christmas special will air from 8 to 8:30 on Wednesday, November 28th, on ABC. So watch it then or record it or buy it after you see it (I bet the prices will go down after it comes out since its a short picture!) Or google it to find it cheaper elsewhere!

We actually recorded this off of TV last year. I don't think I would ever pay full DVD price for this; it's very short only 20 minutes or so. People who are really upset at the price have a reason to be so; but they should have checked the film length before buying. Also that has nothing to do with the quality of this holiday special.

This is a great show. It is very high quality, is funny on numerous levels. Both adults and children will find it highly entertaining. Watching Shrek and Fiona decorate for the holidays is a blast. There is a moral to the story too.

My personal favorite part is where Puss n' Boots tells his version of the Christmas story and get very distracted.

My husband and I have probably watched this 5 or 6 times by ourselves in the last couple years and my son has watched it 3 or 4 times this year. My son is almost 2 and this show is the perfect length for him. He thinks donkey is hilarious and he was rolling over with laughter at Puss N' Boots.

I would recommend either recording it on your Tivo or DVR (it's been on TV a couple times this year too) or waiting until you can buy it cheaper used. But definitely watch it, it's a Christmas classic that I am thrilled to make part of our yearly tradition.

I bought this for my oldest. She has also been a Shrek fan since Shrek first came out when she was about 18 months old. We loved that it came out with the Christmas movie. Honestly though out of all the Shrek's the 1st one is the best :)

I bought this along with some other holiday-themed films just for fun. While I had seen the original Shrek film, this one had eluded me until now. While I'm not a fan of "potty humor", I found the jokes in this short feature to be approachable enough for kids, but still sharp enough to keep me laughing without being over-the-top.

The animation and characterizations live up to the standards set in the first film, but Shrek the Halls offers a completely new story with a new message. While the running time is under 30 minutes, you are left feeling as though it was created with the same care and attention as a full length feature. I have since watched it a few times and still find it funny and charming.

Loads of fun, and I think should enter the ranks of movies like The Grinch That Stole Christmas and A Muppet Christmas Carols, as movies to watch every holiday season.
