Shrek 2 - 5.97

The lovably ugly green ogre returns with his green bride and furry, hooved friend in Shrek 2. The newlywed Shrek and Princess Fiona are invited to Fiona's former kingdom, Far Far Away, to have the marriage blessed by Fiona's parents--which Shrek thinks is a bad, bad idea, and he's proved right: the parents are horrified by their daughter's transformation into an ogress, a fairy godmother wants her son Prince Charming to win Fiona, and a feline assassin is hired to get Shrek out of the way. The computer animation is more detailed than ever, but it's the acting that make the comedy work--in addition to the return of Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, and Cameron Diaz, Shrek 2 features the flexible voices of Julie Andrews, John Cleese and Antonio Banderas, plus Jennifer Saunders as the gleefully wicked fairy godmother. --Bret Fetzer

VERY GOOD : A rare item, a sequel to equal. Just as good as the first but is starting to wear a bit thin on the one liners. Overall, very entertaining and well worth the time spent to watch.

Gotta Love Shrek! : If you liked the first movie, you will definitely like this sequel. If you didn't like the first one.... well I don't know what to tell you. If a little toilet humor and parodies of what was thought not to be parodied offends you, then this movie won't change your feelings. To me the high-light of the movie was s toss-up between "Puss-in-boots" the character whose voice was given birth by Antonio Bandera's; I personally believed that this character was the highlight of the movie. The other highlight of course was Donkey, the wise-cracking-annoying as hell creature voiced by Eddie Murphy.

Is it as good as the first one? I personally believe so seeing as they had to make a bit more of a story this time (last one was just cracking jokes with a little bit of a story in the background, this time we already know the characters so they actually have to give us something else to entertain us). There are jokes in there that entertain everyone, and jokes that only the adults in the audience will get, especially the joke involving Pinocchio is hilarious (you'll know it when you see it).
After a while you forget you're watching an "animated" movie and just accept it for what it is: A great comedy with a terrific cast that your entire family will enjoy, mine surely did. It's obvious that the creators of this were not just trying to rest of their laurels and let the title sell itself.

Note: it is funnier if you are up and hip on popular culture. Look for references to Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake, et al.

This film is a lot of fun, and delivers for all age groups.

A Bit Funnier Than the First : Shrek (Mike Myers) and his new bride Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) are just settling down to their happy ever after when they get a summons. Fiona's parents (Julie Andrews and John Cleese) want to meet their new son-in-law. Shrek knows that their little secret will ruin the meeting. After all, who wants an ogre for a son-in-law, even if your daughter is one, too?

Against his better judgment, the two set out accompanied by Donkey (Eddie Murphy). When they reach Fiona's kingdom, Far Far Away, their reception is everything that Shrek feared it would be, which crushes Fiona.

Unbeknownst to them, danger is lurking in their future. Fiona's Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders) had a deal with Fiona's father. Now the two will do whatever it takes to make that come true.

Can Shrek bring Fiona happiness? Will the evil plot succeed?

The first movie was the surprise hit of 2001, so a sequel was only natural. The first one was original, clever, and had a great message. This one isn't as original and is a variation on the same theme, but it is funnier. The jokes and cultural references are everywhere. It may make the movie dated in 10 years, but for now, it is hilarious.

All the major voice talent is back and again do a great job of bringing their characters to life. The new actors fit right in. Technology has advanced in the three years between movies, and it makes for a better movie this time around.

The only flaw with the film is that, once again, some of the laughter comes from crude jokes and suggestive situations. Since this movie aims at kids, that's a disappointment. Watch it before you let your kids see it to determine if you think it is appropriate for them.

Having said that, this movie will make anyone who watches it laugh.

Amazing!! : This is such a good film, it's probably just as good as the first one although it might be slightly better.
The first one was such a box office hit and it was amazing so they really had to make one that was at least as good as the first one and they have done that with this one.
It is funny from start to finish with a great set of new voices/characters in the film. It's one of those films that you can watch time and again and never get bored with it.
