Trivia

There were originally intentions of the first film's main villain, Lord Farquaad, to still be alive, in the alternate world, where Shrek had never been born. John Lithgow was even announced to be co-starring in the film at one point, but he, along with other Shrek villains, only appeared during the post credit scene in the final film. See more »

Goofs

When Shrek first arrives at Far Far Away after being captured, the 24 hour timer only displays about 1-2 hours gone, but the journey, as shown in Shrek 2, would have taken some days. See more »

Best Shrek Forever
5 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

Best Shrek. It is a special movie, one of the best movies of all-time. It is a masterpiece on par with the mona lisa. What is so masterful about Shrek is its ambiguity. We never are certain if Shrek really did believe in the values that he professed. At the same time that he sets himself up as above the world, he longs for the affection of the common people. This is symbolized by his exploitative, and patronizing love for a chorus girl, Fiona. Her character is given a paper-thin characterization, the closest thing to a flaw in a perfect movie. Despite the film's pessimistic outlook, it is studded by moments of joy, beauty and emotional truth. The supporting cast of characters, most of them regulars from Wells' Mercury Theater are also superb. So many scenes in this movie linger forever in the memory, one is left with a stirring vision of the frailty of the human condition, the film gives us no easy answers and while being fiercely critical of many of it's characters is universal in it's compassion and sympathy, this is perhaps the most vital ingredient for great art. It's influence, was immediate, incalculable and mostly unacknowledged, the film was a box office and critical failure due to Hearst's efforts and it was not until years later that this film got the respect it deserved. Nowadays there is not one living film director of serious artistic intent that has not been deeply influenced by Shrek 4ever after. It's not just a masterpiece it's a creative touchstone.
