Review: “Shrek Forever After” is Ri-donkey-lously Funny!

Grab your kids and your kids' friends and head to the movies this weekend to watch Shrek Forever After – you'll be glad you did.

I'm showing off my “Who The Shrek Are You” OPI Manicure. Look for the special Shrek colors now available.

The fourth and finall installment in the Shrek franchise is a delightfully scripted comedy for the whole family. While it's quick double entendre wit might be lost on the little tikes, it tickles the mature viewer's fancy with many references to contemporary family situations (kids' excessive birthday party, demanding spoiled child, etc.) much to our delight.

The endearing characters are all back with an even edgier personality and pick up where they left off; the now-married Shrek and Fiona are enjoying home life on the swamp tending to their three little ogres. However, Fiona (Cameron Diaz) and Shrek (Mike Meyers) are stuck in a married-with-kids couple's subdued routine which sends Shrek in search of the old days when he was the scariest lad in the land. He makes a deal with the devil, Rumpelstiltskin, to get his old life back for one day, but instead signs away his cozy world to find himself lossing everything and having to overcome many obstacles to get it back.

The message is easy and clear for kids to understand: You don't know what you've got until it's gone, and it's delivered with irreverent jokes for all ages. I especially enjoyed the fast-paced dialog and had to pay attention so I wouldn't miss the rapid-fire exchanges between Donkey (Eddie Murphy), Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) and Shreck!

We were treated to the 3D version of this film and I loved how the use of this innovative cinema effect enveloped my senses without over doing it.

“Do the roar!” and don't miss Shrek Forever After. It would be a cat-as-trophe if you did because this movie is sure to set the bar for the rest of the family summer blockbuster season!

I give it   out of 5!!

    Every fan of Shrek were were excited when the fourth movie was announced as a project. Seeing that the trio was a big success, an end to the story as a fourth movie was apparently thought as inevitable and luckily for the fans, the final chapter “Shrek Forever After” is a good ending for the story and it is as good as the first two films. The director of Shrek Forever After is Mike Mitchell, and he does not disappoint the audience with his skills.
