    Third time not the charm.

    All though Shrek the Third has it's moments of fun and great animation, it doesn't hold up to the first two movies. There are some great moments like the evil trees taken from The Wizard of OZ and than redundant scenes that seem old because they were used in the other Shrek films. The extras are pretty good though the blooper reel is pretty lame with most of it being test animation before it was corrected for the film. It's a good film for the whole family but you might want to rent it before purchasing.

    I think the writers just plum ran out of good ideas after the first two installments. There just wasn't anything terribly enjoyable or funny about this movie. It is just a cheap attempt to make money by cashing in on the popularity of the first two Shreks.

    Good family fun film - a few adult themes

    Very funny, they develop the characters more from the previous films in the series.

    Wow!

    I don't do this often, but I commend Dreamworks for Shrek 1 and 2. But the third one is just insulting. Here are some things to concider regarding the third Shrek: 1) Compared to the first two movies, Donkey has very little screen time - he's way too quiet which is out of character for him. 2) Anything the movie makers thought might've been funny was repeated over and over again until they killed the joke dead and you whish they hadn't even tried at all. 3) Before there is an all-out fight scene toward the end of the movie which gives you the idea that they're about to redeem the movie, someone jumps in and starts talking about peace and how we can all get along and so the climax is... everyone gets along. Besides the political agenda, propoganda and recycled pop-culture hints, this movie was just a complete bust from five minutes into it until the very end. I admit I kept hanging on waiting for redemption, but sadly, for me, it never came. I beleive the reason some people claim to like this movie is because they're die-hard Shrek fans through and through and I respect that. But we can't give Dreamworks the impression that we liked this movie because then they'll just keep making trash like this thinking we actually like it.

    Great!

    I thought this was a very funny movie, although not quite as good as the first two. However, I really enjoyed it and so did the rest of my family.
