Shrek Forever After(2010)
After challenging an evil dragon, rescuing a beautiful princess and saving your in-laws’ kingdom, what’s an ogre to do? Well, if you’re Shrek (Mike Myers), you suddenly wind up a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he did in his youth, a reluctant Shrek now agrees to autograph pitch forks. Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn) and suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) have never met. Now, it’s up to Shrek to undo all he’s done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one true love.... More

After the overstuffed yet bland excesses of 2007’s Shrek the Third, this supposed swansong to Dreamworks’ not so jolly green giant is something of a welcome relief. However, it is still far, far away from the heights of the first two installments.... More
A revisionist take on the original tale, Klausner and Lemke’s story channels It’s a Wonderful Life by way of Back to the Future and The Matrix trilogy (raves included). But while this raises the drama and action stakes, the comedy is sadly lacking with only Donkey and a paunchy Puss ‘n Boots raising much more than a titter.
As usual there are some clever musical and sight gags with a Carpenters-scored montage of Ogre-ing and a gladiatorial Gingerbread Man taking on animal crackers the highlights. Main baddie Rumplestiltskin lacks the menace of John Lithgow’s Lord Farquaad or Rupert Everett’s Prince Charming, with a cupcake-eating clown’s look and Dohrn’s voice combining to make him seem like a cross between Eric Cartman and Clay Aiken.
No cat-tastrophe, Shrek Forever After is more than acceptable school holiday fare but some parents probably won’t be able to wait until it’s ogre.Hide
