"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 is an excellent movie and is best viewed in it's proper widescreen ratio but this DVD set only has the single disc fullscreen version and no widescreen and the 3D movie is just a short movie from a ride at Universal Studios and is only about 15 minutes so if you like widescreen movies you would be best to buy the old two DVD set that has the movie in widescreen and fullscreen and plenty of extras or wait until Shrek 2 is released on DVD with the first movie and the very short 3D movie but anyway a 3D movie seen on your television set won't be as good as in a theater where they use enhanced special effects and personally I find this set to be a waste of money!

Utterly original, terrific animated film, with great voice performances by Mike Meyers and Eddie Murphy,
written with lots of adult wit and humor. Word play and visual puns abound. You don't have to be a kid to love it,
or have kids to rent or buy it. Charming, sweet, funny and romantic.

Amazing, hip use of music (including John Cale's version of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'- how's that for obscure?).

On DVD, try and get this now inexplicably, inexcusably out-of-print widescreen version, so you don't lose chunks
of the lovely visuals on the sides of the frame. It can sometimes be found used for a reasonable price.

lame. i imagine most people buying this already have shrek at home, so that would mean most buyers would be purchasing this for the new material. 16 minutes for $20 is pathetic. i feel dumber than a donkey for buying this. instead of "adventure" on the packaging, it should say "new short feature". oh, have fun explaining to your kids, all excited and ready with glasses, that yes, that's all, there's no more. it was great having them look at me, confused about the "movie" ending so early.

Considering that this disc lacks a Widescreen version of the film and the "extras" disc the original boasted, I would definitely not recommend buying this mess. Why do studios re-release DVDs with fewer features and in Full Screen only? The "extras" are part of why DVD is such a success. Furthermore, widescreen TVs are starting to penetrate the mainstream. In a few years High Definition widescreen TV will be a significant presence. Who will want Full Screen DVDs then?

Shrek is probably the most overrated animated movie of all time. All of the celebrated humor is really just pandering pop-culture referencing of the dumbest kind. The animators were not even creative enough to give their own characters unique looks - all of the physical characteristics and mannerisms of the animated characters just ape those of the voice-over actors. Very, very clever (& precious) and not smart at all.

We bought this DVD because we love this movie. Our 5 year received this DVD for Christmas and loved it when she watched it for the first time.
