The greatest fairy tale never told.

You've never met a hero quite like Shrek, the endearing ogre who sparked a motion picture phenomenon and captured the world's imagination with.. the Greatest Fairy Tale Never Told! The critics are calling Shrek: "Brilliant, dazzling, hilarious, wondrous, and thoroughly entertaining...... A must for all ages." (Lisa McIntosh, Sunday Mail). Relive every moment of Shrek's (Mike Myers) daring quest to rescue feisty Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) with the help of his loveable loudmouthed Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and win back the deed to his beloved swamp from scheming Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). Enchantingly irreverent and "Wickedly funny" (Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald), SHREK is ogre-sized adventure you'll want to see again!

This is a great movie - I think I have just seen it too many times. The 3D bonus disk was great fun as we had not seen that before.

A really good movie. Not as good as the 2nd but still a great movie, with great re-rent value

The absolute cream of the crop when it comes to family animated comedy. It is cleverly written so the sub-text is there for the adults. My daughter has watched it so often she knows the dialogue!

A great movie for the whole family. Loveable characters that the kids love with lots of easily recogniseably fairytale extras as well as some grown up laughs to keep everyone entertained.

This is a superb movie, a fairy tale with a modern flavor. Great for all ages. Eddie Murphy is superb - the character he portrays even has mannerism's like Eddie in person. I laughed hard all through the movie thanks to Eddie.

The thing I enjoy about this is the implied humour. In other words, the humour underneath that you have to understand for yourself to find funny. Oh, and the graphics are incredible, technology behind a film like this is amazing.
