Tell me about it! Those villagers are...
I'm not talking about the villagers, Shrek. I'm talking about you. Is this really how you want to remember the kids' first birthday?
Oh, great, so this is all MY fault?
Yes! But, you know what? Let's talk about this after the party, at home.
You mean that roadside attraction we live in? "Step right up! See the dancing ogre! Don't worry, he won't bite!" I USED to be an ogre! Now, I'm ...

Much better than "Shrek the Third" and is a surprisingly good film
"Shrek Forever After" is a surprisingly good film. Though it is not as great as "Shrek" or "Shrek 2" it is a HUGE improvement over "Shrek the Third." The movie helped the franchise gain some of its heart back that was lacking in the third film and had some terrific action scenes. The first time I saw it I didn't think it was very funny, but when I went back to see it a second time I was laughing plenty of times. The film also teaches an important lesson that if you have a good life you should not give it up for anything. If Shrek had never met Fiona or any of his friends they all would have had rough lives. Overall, the movie is a great conclusion to the film series.
