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 »

Humour is definitely the highest theatric art form, and Shrek is right up there at the top. Let's face it, it takes a lot more intelligence to write a good comedy than a drama or action film. In comedy, creativity and timing is critical. Shrek 3 has both! I own the first two Shrek DVD's and will definitely be adding this one to the collection. In general I do not like animated movies. Shrek is the only exception! As to the neigh-sayers, I would hardly know what to think. I mean, when B-Movies, like Sunshine for example, and horrors get a higher rating than this one, I guess there really is no accounting for taste. So if you like comedy and appreciate creativity and timing, go see Shrek. You will enjoy it. I would like to thank the creators for making this film.
