written with lots of adult wit and humor. Word play and visual puns abound. You don't have to be a kid to love it,
or have kids to rent or buy it. Charming, sweet, funny and romantic.
Amazing, hip use of music (including John Cale's version of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'- how's that for obscure?).
On DVD, make sure you get the re-released (or out of pint original) widescreen version, so you don't lose chunks
of the lovely visuals on the sides of the frame.
The new blu-ray/DVD combo is quite strong. I always thought the DVD (the widescreen, not the 'full frame'
version) was really good looking, but the blu-ray still adds some extra, sharpness, depth, and color.
The DVD is loaded with extras, but frankly, you might not bother with them. Your kid will play with them, exploring them once or twice, but the movie is the real treat. The mock interviews with the characters are intriguing, and worth watching. The re-voice studio is a hoot, and you'll dig showing it off to your friends, but it loses its novelty soon enough. Because it is a DVD, your kids can watch it into eternity without worry of it wearing out.
Lithgow is very Lithgow, much the same personality as he was on "Third Rock from the Sun."
Cameron Diaz's princess character looks remarkably like her.
Eddie Murphy makes a great sidekick. I was skeptical that he might be too over-the-top, but found his voicings to hit the tone perfectly, with great comedic skill. In short, he's hilarious.
The movie is packed wirth allusions to old great movies and cartoons, mostly Disney, and adults will smile everytime they discover a new line or sequence from a movie they grew up with. Watch for "The Princess Bride," "Robin Hood," "The Sound of Music" and a bevy of other homages.
The ending surprised me, but I'll not spoil it for you.
I fully recommend "Shrek."
