"Hi everybody and welcome to the Shrek in the Swamp Karaoke Dance Party!" Says Shrek upon the beginning of the party. If you own the Shrek 2-Disk Special Edition DVD or Special Edition VHS, you can view this extended ending to the movie 'Shrek'. What happens is after Shrek and Fiona's wedding, Shrek turns up the karaoke machine and your favorite characters like Donkey and the Gingerbread Man sing hits like 'Baby Got Back' and 'Like a Virgin', the party continues as many more start singing songs as well. The party then ends with the entire cast singing the lively 'Dance to the Music'. Written by
A very welcome add on to the film worth hunting down
Picking up from the party at the end of Shrek, this musical short takes the form of a karaoke party with all the main characters getting down and letting rip with a collection of songs. Best place to find it is on the DVD or as an extra on the video but it is worth finding.
The song at the end of Shrek is cool (I loved the Vic Reeves version and this is close to that), but the dance party short takes it to another level. The party continues the adult/child humour of the film and is very funny indeed given that it's only a few minutes long.
Each character pretty much has a turn and the songs are very funny (I won't spoil it by naming the songs). Some are hilarious, some are cool and only one is a bit too slow to match the mood of the short. The whole short is fun and adds to the party feeling that was present at the end of Shrek.
Overall this isn't worth watching by itself but is a very, very welcome companion to the film. In about 5 minutes it manages to be so cool it's classic, so funny you'll almost cry and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face no matter what.
