Profile of Shrek

The mood of Shrek is witty, feel good, and sentimental. The plot centers around reluctant partners, an odd couple, and a daring rescue. It features verbal byplay. Shrek is a comedy, adventure, and animation movie. Stylistically, it is fairytale-like, has a Hollywood tone, and features an all-star cast. In approach, it is not serious and fantastical. The pacing of Shrek is fast. Visually, it is computer animated. The musical score is pop. Shrek is based on a book. The movie is known for being a modern classic, an Oscar winner, and a blockbuster. It is especially suggested for a date night, kids, and a family outing.

Critics Reviews

Variety
This spirited and often very funny lark accomplishes something that most films in the bygone Hollywood studio era used to do but is remarkably rare in today's world of niche markets: It offers entertainment equally to viewers from 4 to 104.

Entertainment Weekly
Lives happily ever after because it's such a feisty but good natured embrace of the inner ogre in everyone.

I could not stand this movie when I saw it. It started out slightly witty, as if it was going to be an animated movie with depth. Instead it was one popular culture joke after the other, with some toilet humour in between. It is especially tiresome...

Never a dull moment in this film!
This is one of the better computer animated film I've seen, and it's most recommended. It has great laughs, adventure and romance. Enjoyable for the whole family.

A movie for all ages
Shrek is a terrific parody of almost any fairytale ever told. It's funny and witty without a single boring moment.
