During the first attack by the villains, Fiona, the queen and the princesses are wanting to escape into the sewers. Fiona goes to a wall where there is a three-panel bas-relief of a frog, a princess and a horse. The frog has its lips extended to kiss the princess and the princess is leaning down to kiss the frog. As Fiona pushes on the horse the center panel moves back into the wall and the right panel moves to the left so that it ends up with the frog kissing the rear end of the horse. See more »

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.
