Trivia

In the scene where Mongo is entering Far Far Away, he walks down the street and a group of people are seen running from one building to another, where they seem to feel more safe. In a reference to the vast growth of Starbucks, both the building they started in and the one they ran to across the street are Farbucks coffee shops, parodying the number of starbucks in large cities.

Goofs

In the opening scene, Prince Charming didn't seem surprised to see that there was no dragon guarding the castle like the legend tells. It is weird, since in the previous film we learn that the greatest danger which caused the death of the many knights who attempted to rescue the princess was not the hostile climates in the way to the castle, but the terrible fire-breathing dragon which guards it.

It's a Puss in Boots world, we just all live in it
18 August 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Shrek the Ogre, Pincess Fiona, and Donkey are back in the sequel to the modern day fairy tale classic in this lesser, but still magical sequel. Shrek and Fiona are returning from their honeymoon, only to find a dejected Donkey who broke things off with Dragon apparently and the King's noblemen inviting them to Fiona's parents castle in Faf Far Away. Naturally the anti-social Shrek wants nothing to do with the invitation, but gives in to Fiona and Donkey's insistence. Needless to say the King is quite upset to find his daughter an Ogre and married to Shrek. Add the dastardly vain Prince Charming, a not so good Fairy Godmother and the delightful new addition of Antonio Banderas as Puss In Boots, and you get a fun, but ultimately unneeded sequel that treads to closely to the first plot-wise. However children will still love it. Parents will still chuckle every now and then, and it's still one of the better sequel's that I've seen.

My Grade: B-

Where i saw it: Cinemax on Demand (available till September 9th, 2005)
