Here is the Shrek Forever After trailer, Disney-Pixar creation. This is the final Shrek, no more to follow so you need to see this movie if you are a true Shrek fan. The reviews to this latest installment of Shrek are not that kind, here are some of those not-so-kind reviews:
from Kyle Smith :
After the frantic spurt of fairy-tale allusions and jokes in the first three Shreks, this one inches along with a few mostly pointless action scenes and the occasional mild pun. That it rips off “It’s a Wonderful Life” isn’t the core problem; it’s merely a symptom of the lazy screenwriting that trickles across every limp page of this fantastically boring script. The 3-D effects look terrific, but I’ve seen Keebler Elf commercials with more story line.
From Eric Snider :
Like a long-running TV series, Shrek Forever After assumes that we're comfortable with the characters and will appreciate some twists. (In other words, if you're not a regular viewer of the Shrek sitcom, now's not the time to jump in.) Shrek (voice of Mike Myers) and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) are happily married with baby ogre triplets. Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and his family come to visit regularly. Life is pleasant and pleasant.
And, it turns out, a little boring. You may recall that when Shrek learned Fiona was pregnant, in the last movie, he worried about the drudgery and stress of fatherhood. Now he is indeed fully domesticated, stuck in a rut. He's a local celebrity, beloved throughout the land. Life is good, but ... well, one can't help occasionally getting wistful for the old days, when one was a terrifying ogre with no responsibilities.
