The song "Rumpel's Party Palace", played during the witch rave scene, is a dance remix of "Fugue in G Minor" by Johann Sebastian Bach. Appropriately for the film's subject, this song is known as the "Little Fugue". See more »
After Shrek and Fiona share true love's kiss, evoking his contract's escape clause, he is returned to the original timeline having just given a roar at his children's birthday party. This occurrence had nothing to do with Rumpelstiltskin; had the terms of the contract truly been reversed, Shrek should have been returned to the moment he signed it, or when he first met Rumpel rather than any point beforehand.

On the day that Shrek rescued the cursed Princess Fiona from the tower where she was kept prisoner of the dragon, her parents King Harold and the Queen were ready to sign a contract with the cunning Rumpelstiltskin delivering the kingdom Far Far Away to him. On the present days, Shrek feels bored with Fiona, his family and friends and near a breakdown, and he misses the years when he was a terrifying ogre. Rumpelstiltskin overhears a discussion between Shrek and Fiona and meets Shrek, offering a deal to make he feels a frightening ogre again. In return, Shrek should deliver one day of his childhood to Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek is lured and Far Far Away is distorted under the reign of the tricky Rumpelstiltskin. Now Shrek misses his family and friends and has to win Fiona's heart again to save Far Far Away, his friends and himself.
I have just watched "Shrek Forever After" and my expectations were very low, based on the IMDb user's rating and a couple of reviews that I had glanced. However I liked this underrated animation a lot, which has a good story with many hilarious moments. Once again, Donkey "steals the movie" and this character has been for years the best role of the wasted Eddy Murphy. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Shrek para Sempre" ("Shrek Forever After")
