"Shrek the Third" is very funny, having a great message in the end and completely underrated in IMDb. There are many unfair reviews and I really do not understand what these users have seen to dislike in this animation. There are many new characters from the fairy tales, but all of them has space along the plot, in at least one scene, and I liked, for example, the Cyclops with his beautiful daughter or the lines of Captain Hook just to mention two of them. I saw a version dubbed in Portuguese and the dialogs are excellent. The soundtrack is a plus and I loved "Immigrant Song" and "Baraccuda" in the attack of the heroines. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Shrek Terceiro" ("Shrek The Third")
