Bienvenue dans le monde du conte de fée irrévérencieux. Shrek est un pied de nez à toutes les merveilleuses histoires de notre enfance. En contant les aventures d'un ogre vert, d'un âne et d'une princesse aussi mal dégrossie que Blanche-Neige était
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

Mike Myers is Shrek, a big green, smelly ogre trying to live a peaceful life in his swamp. He spends his day brushing his teeth with bug goo and bathing in swamp mud. All is well until the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow in a brilliant performance) banishes all the kingdoms fairytale inhabitants to Shrek's swamp. In an effort to regain his peace and sanity, Shrek, aided by his unwanted sidekick Donkey (Eddie Murphy), make a deal with Farquaad to rescue the Princess Fiona from The Dragon and bring her back so Farquaad can marry her.
It's well known that DreamWorks and Disney have had an ongoing feud for years, and Shrek is the latest and most destructive shot yet. The makers (led by ex-Disney, DreamWorks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg) hits Disney where it hurts most - animated features. No Disney chestnut is sacred. Various characters pop in and out of the film, and the sight gags playing on Disney's theme parks alone are enough to keep anybody entertained. Without giving anything away, one of the most hysterical gags in the film involve the Princess and a little bird in a very Disney, very Snow White singing sort of way.
The non-stop punches at Disney are one of the levels Shrek succeeds. The other is that it's a pure, heart warming story that anybody of any age can enjoy. Unlike most recent movies (animated or live action), Shrek is story driven. Watching the film you come to care about the characters and get involved in their feelings. I even found myself caring about characters that in any other movie would be pushed into the background soon after their "big scene". I would also like to say that I commend the DreamWorkers for the ending. It was unexpected and appreciated because it shows that beauty has many levels.
In general, Shrek can do no wrong. I usually see at least one thing I would've done differently, but not with this movie. I have racked my brain, and can't come up with a single thing I'd do differently. Shrek is visually stunning, hugely engaging and has a strong heartfelt moral.
While the film is easily appreciated by the upper elementary and up set, teens and adults will find great wit in the film. Between the gags and allusions is a questioning of the fairy tale formula, which is ironic given the Campbell-esque hero's arc of the story. And then there are questions of power, friendship, male and female roles, love, and loyalty. The film deftly balances gross-out humor and poignant moments. This animated film has aged surprisingly well. Although the animated style might seem passe in 2016, the story's heart still works well.
So this is where our journey begins, shrek on a quest with his trusty ass sidekick, Donkey. The journey to find the princess (Cameron diaz) poses many obstacles and growing tensions between type b donkey and type a shrek.
I will not spoil the rest of this film for you but I will leave you with some more insight. This film is for everyone; the outcasts, the royals, the intellectuals, the comics. This movie is NOT for people that have. A bad attitude, can't take a joke or like to be haters!!!! This is a movie full of passion, romance, dragons and friendship. Highly recommend for a movie night with friends.
