Product Description

Product Description

Shrek (Two-Disc Special Edition

Amazon.ca

William Steig's delightfully fractured fairy tale is the right stuff for this computer-animated adaptation full of verve and wit. 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 humor that makes Shrek a winner. The PG rating is stretched when Murphy and Myers hit their strides. The mild potty humor is fun enough for 10-year-olds but will never embarrass their parents. Shrek is never as warm and inspired as the Toy Story films, but the realistic computer animation and a rollicking soundtrack keep the entertainment in fine form. Produced by DreamWorks, the film also takes several delicious stabs at its crosstown rival, Disney. --Doug Thomas

Format: DVD
A love story between a farting ogre and a belching princess, *Shrek* poses as an iconoclastic movie, gleefully destroying the romance and spirituality of classic fairy tales with a mixture of teenage irreverence, bad taste, rock'n roll music, anachronisms and trendy cynical humour. Apparently, noone realizes just how formulaic the whole movie is (cliche-bashing being just as predictable as the cliches it bashes), down to the buddy-movie stereotype of the taciturn hero developing a friendship with an annoyingly talkative sidekick. Even the short-legged king coveting the hero's love interest is borrowed from the French animated masterpiece, *Le Roi et l'Oiseau*- a much more subtle attempt to reinvent the fairy tale (even though Prevert was not that subtle himself.)
Now what explains the success of *Shrek*, apart from the massive advertising campaign and the current popularity of outrageously bad taste?
I think America has recognized itself in the main character. Shrek lives in a cabin in the wilderness, like the pioneers of old, and is mostly concerned with the defense of his property rights and the ousting of squatters from his land : the typical American mindset. His individualistic, don't-tread-on-me attitude leads him into conflict with a despotic King, symbolizing the Old-World order which Republican America has been so sucessful at overthrowing over the centuries. And in the pursuit of his own self-interest, Shrek uses his awesome physical power (soon seconded by that of a Dragon, probably symbolic of the atomic bomb) to become a kind of benevolent world policeman, vandalizing churches with the same glee as modern Americans' French Huguenot ancestors, echoing America's centuries-old hatred of Catholicism.

I decided to rent the "Shrek" dvd because I wanted to know why everyone thought this movie was so great--I didn't go and see it in the theaters. I have to say that it was TERRIBLE! Much of the jokes were so unfunny, and I don't understand why they say this is a kid's movie...it seems more like an adult movie to me! Sure, some of the jokes were funny, but they weren't fall-on-the-floor-laughing hilarious--I only ended up smiling at the jokes and only slightly laughed. And believe me, I DO have a good sense of humor, I just didn't find the jokes in "Shrek" to be all that funny.
"Shrek" is about an old lonely troll who hates everyone...but really just wishes he had someone who loved him. A simple, predictable childish plot with adult humor that makes it seem like it's more enjoyable.
Now the dvd is actually pretty good, which is unfortunate since it was a bad movie. I don't think the dvd is worth purchasing if you didn't like the film. Nice special features and good, clear picture quality. The acting is okay in "Shrek", though I have to say that I am not a huge fan of Mike Myers, since I also think his "Austin Powers" movies are quit annoying. Eddie Murphy and John Lithgrow were the best in it...and Cameron Diaz was pretty good, too.
I honestly really tried to like "Shrek". My sisters and friends all loved it, but I have to say that I didn't like it at all. I really hope there is no "Shrek 2". Besides, what would the plot be like? Oh well. I'm sure Dreamworks could think of something to poke fun of.
This is not really a kid's movie because a lot of the jokes are geared toward adults. Some of the jokes are pretty toilet-dirty, and others are just plain bad that nobody can really understand or relate to.
"Shrek" was not for EVERYBODY...and not for me, either. I don't recommend this movie to anyone.

"Shrek" along with the movie "Ice Age" are the two great animation films put out in the last ten years. As with all "cartoons" and their genre, there are many cultural reference and movie asides that not everyone is going to get. More so in "Shrek" than in "Ice Age." This is obviously done on purposes, cross pollenating the audiences of younger and older generations.

"Shrek" works on so many levels. First, the casting of voices is the best I've encountered. The animation is fantastic, and the story holds together nicely.

If you want a movie everyone can watch, "Shrek" is the one to pick. I would HIGHLY recommend "Ice Age" also (both of them now) as they're very funny with an underlying message of global warming, which, by now, we all know is happening.

shrek....... what garbage. i had heard from a friend who had went to see it that it wasn't very funny, but i decided to rent it, just to see. she was dead on. a lack of humor plagues this movie, and really crushes the great talent behind it (meyers, murphey, and diaz.) There was 1!!! funny scene in this movie, where the gingerbread man cookie says eat me. Otherwise, this movie included a lot eye-rolling. Regardless, its a good story, and an original idea, just one that was very poorly made. This seems to be one of those movies where people are just laughing because other people who don't know what funny is, are. And because of this, they are making a sequel, which is unfortunate, unless they fix this up. ...

The movie's adertisements make it look like a kid's movie, and at first it seems it is. But if you re-watch it you'll discover it is amazingly crude, twisted, and sexual. ...
The movies also packs WAY to many bodily function jokes in there. There's about five in the first three minutes alone. Shrek takes a bath in mud, gargles it, then jumps in a lake, farts, and a dead fish comes floating up. After that, he squeezes bug juice onto a stick and brushes his teeth with. Then he pulls out his own ear wax to make a candle, and drinks a martini with a human eye in it. Nice for children, huh?
Well that's it. The warning to not let your kids touch this movies, much less watch it. ...
