"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.
