Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! x 1000000000000 and even louder.
17 May 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is below the bottom of the barrel. Happily N'Ever After is that kind of movie you watch once and never want to revisit EVER again. This happens with GOOD movies when you want to watch that movie a second time and it's even better than the first time, but this is the exact opposite!!

Who honestly thought that plagiarizing the Shrek premise was a good idea? Who with the right mind set think that way?! Nobody! Shrek was classic but this was and still is Shrek's crap! This makes other horrors like Shark Tale look like masterpieces and believe me, that's not saying enough. The movie has to be seen to be believed.

Horrible CGI, horrible acting, horrible characters, horrible script, horrible humor that's not even funny AT ALL, and most of all A HORRIBLE movie experience!!!! This is the worst cartoon I've ever seen in my life!!! It'd take some real effort to make me hate a movie even more than this one.
