For those who were possibly disappointed with the second Shrek movie: this one puts things right back on track again. It’s maybe even cuter than the original…with a whole string of well-known voices. Eric Idle is easy enough; but see if you can spot that of Larry King!

The opening sequence is like something out of Spike Milligan’s first novel, “Puckoon.” However, King Harold (John Cleese) is dying. As Fiona (Cameron Diaz) and Shrek (Mike Myers) both decline the throne, Shrek & company are sent out on a quest to find Arthur Pendragon (Justin Timberlake) who will be the new king of Far Far Away. As he leaves, Fiona tells Shrek that she is pregnant. Meanwhile, Prince Charming (Robert Everett) enlists the help of a colony of well-known fairytale villains to conspire to make him the new ruler in Shrek’s absence.

Like Flushed Away, much of the humour is so subtle that you’ll probably miss it the first time round. (I know I did!) For example: Some White’s animals include rabbits Hazel and Fiver from Watership Down!

I give it the highest possible praise; but it’s not for those who don’t have a sense of humour!
It's not easy being an ogre, but Shrek finds it doubly difficult for an ogre like himself to fill in for a king when his father-in-law King Harold of Far, Far Away falls ill in this third Shrek movie. Shrek's attempts to fulfill his kingly duties play like a blooper reel, with boat christenings and knighting ceremonies gone terribly wrong, and to say that Shrek (Mike Myers) is insecure about his new role is a gross understatement. When King Harold (John Cleese) passes away, Shrek sets out with Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss-in-Boots (Antonio Banderas) to find Arthur (Justin Timberlake), the only heir in line for the throne besides himself. Just as Shrek sets sail to find Artie (as Arthur is more commonly known), Fiona (Cameron Diaz) shocks Shrek with the news that she's pregnant. Soon after, Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) sends Captain Hook (Ian McShane) in pursuit of Shrek and imprisons Fiona and her fellow Princesses as part of his plan to install himself as King of Far, Far Away. Shrek finds an awkward Artie jousting with his high school classmate Lancelot (John Krasinski) and, while Artie is certainly no picture of kingliness, Shrek is determined to drag him back to Far, Far Away to assume the throne. Mishaps and comedy abound, including a spell gone wrong that locks Donkey and Puss-in-Boots inside one another's bodies. While Fiona and the other Princesses prove they're anything but helpless women, Artie and Shrek battle their own fears of inadequacy in a struggle to discover their own self-worth. In the end, Shrek, Artie, and Fiona each learn a lot about their individual strengths and what truly makes each of them happy. Of course, it's the pervasive humour and wit that make Shrek 3 so side-splittingly appealing. --Tami Horiuchi
