Goofs

The morning after they meet Merlin, just before they are attacked by the Villains, Donkey can be seen with his legs sleeping on his back on the 2 first shot, then then camera change and when you see him again he is on his side still sleeping. The camera change is so fast that it cannot be attributed to he moving his position but to an error. See more »

Just awful.
20 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having seen the trailer for Shrek the Third when I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and laughing at some of the jokes presented, I thought that it might be worth seeing, as I liked the first two installments from the series. But... I have to say it's the worst film released this year. Well, possibly apart from Bratz, but I'm not exactly planning on going to see that any time soon. It's just awful. If I could I wouldn't even award it one star.

If you've seen the trailer and not the film - basically, that's all the funny parts of the film. So when you actually see the film, it's not even funny.

Shrek and Fiona's relationship is so unconvincing that even Ben Affleck and Kate Beckinsale's in Pearl Harbor is more believable.

There is a slightly enjoyable dream sequence of Shrek's, but I didn't laugh. I was so bored I couldn't move a muscle, but I had nothing better to do than watch the movie.

If you're new to Shrek, it's probably better to rent this one first.
