Shrek the Third- Review

The third (and possibly final) adventure of the grumpy-yet-lovable ogre brings the series to a natural conclusion, and is an ideal way to keep the kids amused on a rainy Sunday afternoon, while providing plenty of laughs for grown-ups as well.

When Princess Fiona’s father, King Harold, falls ill, Shrek heads off with sidekicks Donkey and Puss in Boots to find the natural heir to the throne of Far Far Away. However, someone else has his own ideas about who should rule.

The charm of the Shrek films is the subtly affectionate ways in which the fairytale characters are grounded in real life – Prince Charming is a mother-obsessed failed actor, Sleeping Beauty suffers from narcolepsy, and The Big Bad Wolf has spent so much time in Grandma’s night attire that he is happily living as a transvestite.
