Trivia

The Evil Queen from Snow White in this film, is voiced by Susanne Blakeslee, who oddly enough, had been the current voice of that character in Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) at the time, but she does a different sort of voice for this film. See more »

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 »

Shrek the third is a nightmare. I've seen bad films (like Battlefield Earth, or even Necro Files 2) but this is ridiculous. This pathetic sequel is pure rubbish. The good old characters writhe in a nightmarishly stupid environment. With some nightmarishly stupid and mannered new characters. Boring, slow storytelling, with predictable "twists" well done enough for the taste of an average newborn. The worst thing is that this film is serious as hell. No clues of irony or sarcasm against the stupid fairytale (or worst the stupid pop-cultural) clichés. This film is sweet and cheesy like a big budget Barbie Fairytopia sequel without the charm, innocence, and low budget smartness of that. Let's forget its technical precision, and you'll get one unusually dumb film.
