Longing for the days when he was a "real ogre" Shrek signs a deal with Rumpelstiltskin to get his roar back... but turns his world upside down in the process. Donkey suddenly can't remember his best friend; Fiona is now a tough warrior princess; and Puss in Boots is one fat cat! Together, they have just 24 hours to reverse the contract and restore happily FOREVER after to close the final chapter in this "fine family film!"
Great entertainment for children of all ages
- Shrek Forever After review by PV
I loved this movie so much I watched it twice in two days - and I rarely do that. I didn't like the last two Shrek films, and thought the first was only moderately funny, but I absolutely LOVED this one. Why? Mainly, the script. It is so tight it almost squeaks, and the action moves on in such a way that it is never ever boring. The animation is brilliant too - and I loved the witches! There are great lines aplenty and lots of injokes and adult jokes too - plus lots of colourful nonsens for the kiddies. This is probably the best family film I have seen since Toy Story.
The only thing I did not like was the music - al that awful modern dance music/rap/r + B - I HATE that kind of music. But it's a small complaint. I would happily pass on most movies to watch this one again - SO funny, but also intelligent with just the right mix of sentimentality mixed in. Fantastic film!
