Shrek has rescued Princess Fiona, got married, and now is time to meet the parents. Shrek, Fiona and Donkey set off to Far, Far Away to meet Fiona's mother and father. But not everyone is happy. Shrek and the King find it hard to get along, and there's tension in the marriage. It's not just the family who are unhappy. Prince Charming returns from a failed attempt at rescuing Fiona, and works alongside his mother, the Fairy Godmother, to try and find a way to get Shrek away from Fiona.

Did You Know?


The re-united 'The Pixies' recorded a new song together (their first output in 12 years), written by Kim Deal, called "Bam Thwok," which was originally written for the soundtrack to 'Shrek 2'. But the movie company chose a song by 'Counting Crows' instead, and "Bam Thwok" ended up helping to inaugurate the European version of iTunes.


When Shrek enters through the castle gate, he enters on the right side, but when swinging on the chain, he's on the left side.

Prince Charming:
Once upon a time, in a kingdom far, far away, the king and queen were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, and throughout the land everyone was happy, until the sun went down, and they saw that their daughter was cursed with a frightful enchantment that took hold each and every night…

User Review



The first time I watched this movie was in my living room with my
husband, daughter, and mom. We all laughed so hard we had to watch it
again to see what we missed (which turned out to be a lot!). Antonio as
Puss was genius! As was Jennifer Saunders as the fairy godmother. Kudos
to the casting director. Once again Eddie Murphy as the annoying and
talkative donkey was perfect and even much more lovable. And Mike Myers
as Shrek, what can I say? A perfect grumpy ogre. Cameron Diaz once
again lets her personality shine through even in animation. Oh, and
Rupert! With that voice being the narcissistic Prince Charming. I could
go on and on about the characters in this movie but instead I implore
you to watch it for yourself. I loved this movie as did my entire
family. The jokes in this movie were absolutely delicious! For those
naysayers who hated this movie, I say go buy a sense of humor!
