Storyline

A bored and domesticated Shrek pacts with deal-maker Rumpelstiltskin to get back to feeling like a real ogre again, but when he's duped and sent to a twisted version of Far Far Away -- where Rumpelstiltskin is king, ogres are hunted, and he and Fiona have never met -- he sets out to restore his world and reclaim his true love.

Trivia

Rumpelstiltskin begins a line with the words "If music has charms to soothe the savage BEAST." Though this quote has been used many times, it is actually a misquote of the line "Music has charms to soothe a savage BREAST, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak," (from "The Mourning Bride" [1697] by William Congreve). However, in the case of this movie, as it pertains to Shrek (an ogre), the misquote ("beast" rather than "breast") is, in fact, appropriate. See more »

Goofs

When Shrek is crying in the woods, the tear is shown falling down his right side. However, when Donkey notices, he is standing to Shrek's left, from which angle the tear is not visible. See more »

Time to say Shrek Good-Bye...
22 May 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Shrek has gone down a cult film character... so has Donkey, Fiona and Puss in Boots, thanks to the film that these characters became such a craze. Shrek was awesome, Sherk 2 was legendary, but the last one before this one 'Shrek The Third' was a yawn. Now comes 'Shrek Forever After', which ends the Shrek series... well if there is one more left, then I guess I won't be looking forward to it!

The problem with 'Shrek The Third' and 'Shrek Forever After' are it's script. The writing is bland, you except a lot from Shrek, due to the wholesome entertainment we've witnessed before. The Final Chapter has it's share of funny and light moments, but they are far and between!

What saves this disappointment is it's characters. Myers as Shrek is as good as ever! Diaz gives Fiona the voice she needs. Donkey and Puss-In Boots voiced by Icons like Murphy and Banderas are the life of the show. They are funny and spot-on. Walt Dohrn as the evil-head Rumplestilskin is just about okay.

All n all, It's truly time to say Shrek and his friends Good-Bye. Thanks for the entertainment you gave us in the first 2 flicks, now you guys are getting wasted in poor scripts. So, Have a nice time at Far Far Away!
