Movie Review by Zara
March 12th, 2007

Fun for the whole family

Any little girl worth her cookies has been taught to buy into the fairy tale machine. That one which pumps out loving tales of princesses in distress and wonderful knights in shining armour who come to save them.

All those little girls eventually grow up and realize that the men who fancy themselves knights are usually womanizing pigs who want a little woman to service them.

I loved the fact that Shrek made fun of the fairy tales. Many of us grow up and realize that they are a form a brainwashing that is fed to kids, trying to get them to behave, teaching them about villains and monsters so that they'll toe the line for mommy and daddy. Seeing all of those fairy tales get busted and the ugly guy get the ugly girl was magical for me.

Plus the dragon is really cool. And I love waffles.

There is enough in this movie for parents and kids alike to enjoy. The more adult jokes go over the heads of the little kids and yet the movie remains bright and colorful enough to capture their short attention spans.

An original. Well, until they made all the sequels, that is.
