Well it is only obvious why Shrek the third stunk... Dreamworks had this little gem up it's sleeve.
this is what Shrek the third should have been. High on comedy,AWESOME soundtrack and a nice little moral at the end. All the characters were great. And I particularly loved Gingy's Christmas story of horror ( it had me rolling) My only complaint was the length of time. It really could've gone an hour to hour and a half and i wouldn't have complained.
This is a wonderful holiday special that will no doubt be added to our family holiday rotation. And in the plus column it was completely family friendly.
If you have a chance see it. I personally can't wait for the DVD.
