“I enjoyed the first two Shrek films very much,...”

Written on: 06/08/2007 by riker (77 reviews written)

I enjoyed the first two Shrek films very much, especially Shrek 2 which introduced more characters such as Puss in Boots. Shrek the Third was disappointing as I found the story a bit too solemn with less light hearted humour. Fiona's father dies and Shrek leaves to find the next in line to the throne of Far Far Away so that he doesn't have to be King. Prince Charming rounds up all the nursery rhyme nasties and takes the throne whilst Shrek is gone. It has all the fairytale characters such… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/07/2007 by matt of bicester (16 reviews written)

Unsurprisingly not as good as the original Shrek but a refreshing improvement on the second film. This film has what Shrek fans love about the franchise: a twisted take on old fairy tales, witty and fast-paced dialogue, and jokes cleverly pitched at audiences of all ages. Shrek the Third also benefits from dealing with some issues that will hit close to home for a lot of us, particularly unwanted responsibility (in this case, responsibility to the crown and children). Shrek's dream about… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2007 by Timix1 (33 reviews written)

As much as I've enjoyed Pixar/Disney's features over this past decade or so (last summer's CARS was no exception), I've always held Dreamworks' pair of SHREK flicks especially close to my heart. Maybe it's because I worship at Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy's feet as comedy gods who were the best things to ever happen to 'Saturday Night Live'. Maybe it's the films' inspired re-contextualizing of our beloved fairy tales. Maybe I just like sass-talking gingerbread men (and maybe I've said too… Read Full Review

Great review, is it just as entertaining for kids as the last two?

Degbert's Response to Timix1's Review

Written on: 01/08/2007

For the third time I laughed more than I grimaced, but this reviewer is right that the whole Artie thing was horribly limp, and the growing pains of a father-to-be turned Shrek himself from lovable oaf to tiresome self-absorbed young parent. Some of the one-liners were wonderful, however, and the slapstick scenes a triumph once again. The funniest moment was the donkey/cat voice transition. I'll say no more, but an indignant Banderas rather stole the show for me. Probably a 6/10 all in all.

Thanks for the compliment!

<br/>Yes, I'd say it's just as appropriate for kids as the first two. King Harold's death and funeral might be sad for very young children, but the movie doesn't dwell on his passing for too long; they actually have Paul McCartney's "Live And Let Die" (of all things!) playing during his funeral. Like the first two, SHREK THE THIRD has several more adult-themed gags that will go over kids' heads, but nothing objectionable.
