Shrek with voices by Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Mike Myers

Shrek is a green ogre who enjoys living by himself in his swamp. When the evil ruler Lord Farquaad throws all the fairy tale characters out of his land, they all go to Shrek for help. Together they hatch a plan to offer Lord Farquaad a deal...

Review

Full of verve and wit Shrek is a computer-animated adaptation of William Steig's delightfully fractured fairy tale. Our title character (voiced by Mike Myers) is an agreeable enough ogre who wants to live his days in peace. When the diminutive Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) evicts local fairy tale creatures (including the now-famous Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio and the Gingerbread Man), they settle in the ogre's swamp and Shrek wants answers from Farquaad. A quest of sorts starts for Shrek and his new pal, a talking donkey (Eddie Murphy), where battles have to be won and a princess (Cameron Diaz) must be rescued from a dragon lair in a thrilling action sequence. The story is stronger than most animated fare but it's the jokes that make Shrek a winner. The mild potty humour is fun enough for the 10-year-old but will never embarrass their parents.
