About this product
- DescriptionSet in a strange, colourful land populated by fairy tale characters, SHREK is a hilarious comedy that will win over audiences of children and adults alike. Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers) is a fearsome green ogre living in isolation in his own cosy little swamp. He is not receptive to visitors, and fends off the occasional party of torch-wielding villagers with ease. But when the power-hungry Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) turns Shrek's swamp into a relocation camp for dozens of banished fairy-tale characters (including some pesky dwarves, wolves, and fairies) Shrek's quiet, introverted life is ruined. Joined by the talkative Donkey (Eddie Murphy), Shrek makes his way to Farquaad's realm of Duloc, where the Lord promises to make Shrek an offer: He will rid Shrek's land of the unwanted visitors if Shrek will go on a simple quest to free Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) from her remote, dragon-guarded castle and convince her to marry Farquaad. On their quest, Shrek and Donkey run into a number of bizarre situations, and Shrek finds himself realising that he isn't quite the fearsome monster he has always made himself out to be. Reinventing the traditional fairy tale adventure, SHREK features gorgeous computer animation, a unique sense of humour, and compelling characters--especially Murphy's lovable Donkey.

Little Green Monsters! (.... and Shrek)
Green monsters seem to be all the rage these days, what with Hulk, Yoda, and that big ugly troll thingy out of the first Harry Potter movie. But Shrek, the flatulent swamp-dwelling ogre with a heart of gold (well, silver at least), is more than capable of rivalling any of them. Mike Myers provides the voice of the potato-faced bog monster roped into rescuing a beautiful princess (with Cameron Diaz on vocals) from the far-away lair of a giant pink fire-breathing dragon. In return for this act of bravery, he’s been promised to have his home cleared of all pesky fairy tale creatures by the short ‘n’ nasty Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). The trouble is, Farquaad only wants the Princess so he can marry her and become King, Shrek predictably finds himself getting all mushy over his newfound damsel in distress, and the princess turns out to have a whopping great secret of her own. Jeez, nothing’s ever simple, is it? Eddie Murphy joins in as the voice of Shrek’s over-enthusiastic donkey companion, whilst Myers for some reason uses the dodgy Scottish accent he seems obsessed with including in his movies (‘Austin Powers’, ‘So I Married An Axe Murderer’). A Scot Shrek may well be, but I’ve yet to see a north-of-the-borderer with skin THAT bad. Well, not outside of Dundee at least. The quality of animation used is absolutely superb, and the story itself is good enough to rival any of the old fairy tales it pokes fun at. I particularly love the early scene where Farquaad has the Gingerbread Man tortured, but bear in mind that I’m a bit of a sicky. This is based on a little-known but apparently very good children’s book by William Steig, but most of the humour here will appeal to all ages (though it does tend to over do it a little on the fart jokes). There are also occasions where it seems to be trying a little too hard to be modern, and the central message about not judging people by their appearance is a little lost by the continual mocking of Farquaad’s diminutive stature. But he’s only little, so he probably doesn’t mind. It's Got: Fantastic animation and plenty of familiar fairy tale faces popping up along the way. It Needs: Eddie Murphy’s trademark chortle – what’s happened to it? Read full review

Not just for the kids
Very funny, with moments of rather dark humour and some subversive ideas. Eddie Murphy's Donkey steals many scenes, and the gingerbread man is hilarious. Brilliantly conceived and executed, and frankly unmissable.

I haven't watched it yet, but when I saw it at the cinema I enjoyed it. I have also got the 2nd and 3rd on dvd now. I haven't yet seen the third but am sure it will be good. The reason I bought this cd was to make up a collection to watch when ever I want.
