“Shrek” is fun for everyone. It is a really good animated film with a positive message.

Absolutely brilliant, feel-good tale for kids of all ages, with hidden underlying messages of self image/esteem, acceptance, and inner beauty. Eddie Murphy as sidekick Donkey was incomparable. He (and the writers) made this movie hilarious. John Lithgow's voice as Farquaad was too familiar, and seemed out of place. I also find Cameron Diaz annoying - someone else would've suited me for Fiona. Aside from that, the animation (facial expressions, scenery) was incredible. Ingeniously witty script (milk tortured gingerbread man, Lord Farquaad on 'The Dating Game', etc...). I loved this movie. Winner of the first Academy Award for Best Animated Feature says it all. FIVE STARS.

This was great. Though the first beats all, the other 3 were good-especially the 4th one, but There's the feeling in just watching the first one that puts the others on a a roll. 5/5 Stars.

This brought to the table a whole new kind of parody, in my perspective. Is very kid-friendly, effectively makes fun of predictable chliches while still having one itself and has awesome voicework by the entire cast!

Shrek, a grouchy, mean, selfish green ogre that has always enjoyed living in peaceful solitude in his swamp, finds his life disrupted when numerous fairytale beings, including Pinocchio, the Three Little Pigs, and Donkey, are forced into the swamp by order of the obsessive, perfectionistic, fairy-tale despising Lord Farquaad. Shrek leaves the swamp to ask Farquaad for the return of his privacy, with Donkey happily tagging along. Meanwhile, Farquaad tortures the Gingerbread Man into revealing the whereabouts of the remaining fairytale creatures until his guards rush in with an object Farquaad has been searching for: the Magic Mirror. The Mirror tells him that Farquaad can only become a real king by marrying a princess (completely disregarding his original question regarding if his kingdom was the fairest of them all). The Mirror gives him three princesses to choose from (in a parody of The Dating Game): Cinderella, Snow White, and Princess Fiona. Farquaad chooses Fiona and silences the Mirror before he can mention "the little thing that happens at night" (which is later revealed to be a curse). Shrek and Donkey arrive at Farquaad's palace in Duloc, where they find themselves in the midst of a tournament. The winner will have the "privilege" of attempting to rescue Fiona from a castle surrounded by lava and protected by a fire-breathing dragon so that Farquaad may marry her. Shrek (with some help from Donkey) easily beats the other knights in a fashion that resembles a wrestling match and Farquaad agrees to remove the fairytale creatures from the swamp if Shrek rescues Fiona.

An ogre, in order to regain his swamp, travels along with an annoying donkey in order to bring a princess to a scheming lord, wishing himself King.

Donkey: "Whoa, Shrek, did you do that? Man, you gotta warn somebody before you crack one like that, my mouth was open and everything!" Shrek: "Donkey, if that was me, you'd be dead! (sniffs) That's brimstone... we must be getting close." Donkey: "Yeah, right, brimstone. Don't be talking about no brimstone. I know what I smelled, it wasn't no brim and it didn't come off no stone neither..."

Lord Farquaad: (playing with Gingerbread Man's legs) "Run, run, run as fast as you can/You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!" Gingerbread Man: "You're a monster!" Lord Farquaad: (tossing legs away) "I'm not the monster here, YOU are! You and the rest of that fairytale trash, poisoning my perfect world. Now tell me, where are the others?" Gingerbread Man: "Eat me!" (spits milk in Farquaad's face) Lord Farquaad: "I've tried to be fair to you creatures, but now my patience has reached its end! Tell me, or I'll..." Gingerbread Man: "NO! Not the buttons! Not my gumdrop buttons!"
