Great dvd and funny for the kids to watch

by JR on 8/22/2012

I like this movie more so than my child. It is just funny watching the donkey and shrek together. The plot is good and it keeps you interested for the whole movie. But my favorite character is the donkey. I would recommend this movie for any child. I don't think it would ever get old watching it. I find myself stopping on the channel when ever it is on.

Editors Note
Note Set in a strange, colorful land populated by fairy tale characters, SHREK is a hilarious comedy that will win over audiences of children and adults alike. Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers) is a fearsome green ogre living in isolation in his own cozy little swamp. He is not receptive to visitors, and fends off the occasional party of torch-wielding villagers with ease. But when the power-hungry Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) turns Shrek's swamp into a relocation camp for dozens of banished fairy-tale characters (including some pesky dwarves, wolves, and fairies) Shrek's quiet, introverted life is ruined. Joined by the talkative Donkey (Eddie Murphy), Shrek makes his way to Farquaad's realm of Duloc, where the Lord promises makes Shrek and offer: He will rid Shrek's land of the unwanted visitors if Shrek will go on a simple quest to free Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) from her remote, dragon-guarded castle and convince her to marry Farquaad. On their quest, Shrek and Donkey run into a number of bizarre situations, and Shrek finds himself realizing that he isn't quite the fearsome monster he has always made himself out to be. Reinventing the traditional fairy tale adventure, SHREK features gorgeous computer animation, a unique sense of humor, and compelling characters--especially Eddie Murphy's lovable Donkey.
Movieline's Hollywood Life "...The impudent jokes keep rolling along. Mike Myers provides a sly vocal impression....It's Eddie Murphy as the smart-ass donkey sidekick who steals the show..." 06/01/2001 p.39
Rolling Stone "...SHREK is a world-class charmer..." 06/07/2001 p.119-20
Variety "...SHREK is an instant animated classic....Playing equally effectively as a lively romp for kids and an enormously clever comedy for adults..." 05/07/2001 p.49-58
Premiere "...SHREK is a funny, sweet, snappy fairy tale about misfits....It's impossible to ogre-state the sheer fun of SHREK..." 06/01/2001 p.88-9
New York Times "...SHREK is scrappy, brash comedy, and the brio of actors adds to the dynamism..." 05/16/2001 p.E1
USA Today "...Riotous....The most thoroughly enjoyable cartoon feature since TOY STORY..." 05/16/2001 p.1D
Box Office "...Mike Myers is able to both humanize and soften the character....Cameron Diaz' unorthodox take on a post-feminist fairytale princess is likewise accomplished, endearing yet amusing..." 07/01/2001 p.101
Sight and Sound "...SHREK is a film of marvels....It has a lovely vintage-illustration look, with a sylvan swamp and a wonderfully grotesque castle..." 07/01/2001 p.54-5
Los Angeles Times "...Casual, carefree, consistently amusing....Smartly constructed to appeal to children and their parents..." 05/16/2001 p.1
Chicago Sun-Times "...The movie is an astonishing visual delight, with animation techniques that seem lifelike and fantastical, both at once..." 05/18/2001 p.27
