The cranky beast with a heart of gold returns to the big screen in this sequel to the computer-animated smash hit Shrek. After massive green ogre Shrek (voice of Mike Myers) and his new bride, Princess Fiona (voice of Cameron Diaz), return from their honeymoon, they receive an invitation to visit Fiona's parents, King Harold (voice of John Cleese) and Queen Lillian (voice of Julie Andrews), who are the monarchs of The Land Far, Far Away. However, the king and queen are more than a bit alarmed to discover their new son-in-law is a monster the color of algae, and that their daughter's little problem with a magical spell gone wrong has turned into a full-time skin condition. Certain this isn't the sort of "happily ever after" they dreamed of for their daughter, King Harold decides to take Shrek out of the picture and return Fiona to her former beauty with the help of Prince Charming (voice of Rupert Everett), the Fairy Godmother (voice of Jennifer Saunders), and ogre-slaying feline Puss in Boots (voice of Antonio Banderas). Shrek 2 also features the voice of Eddie Murphy returning as Donkey, as well as Larry King as an Ugly Stepsister.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
A star is born in Shrek 2! It's Puss in Boots, voiced with suave and swashbuckling bravado by Antonio Banderas. Not since the 1947 Warner Bros. cartoon "Little Orphan Airedale" has the "soulful eyes routine" been used to such devastatingly funny effect. Puss, a would-be assassin hired to dispatch our not-so-jolly green ogre, effortlessly steals every scene he's in. He also revitalizes the Shrek franchise. Hopefully, a spin-off is in the works (until then, he hosts the bonus features portion of the DVD edition). Shrek 2 continues Shrek and Fiona's fairy-tale romance beyond "happy-ever-after." The original voice cast return in their triumphant signature roles: Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz as the honeymooners, and Eddie Murphy as the loquacious but lovable Donkey. New to the story are Fiona's disapproving royal parents (John Cleese, Julie Andrews) and the vengeful Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders), who schemes for her son, Prince Charming (Rupert Everett), to take Fiona for his wife. While not as emotionally satisfying as the original, Shrek 2 is just as funny; brimming with in-jokes, pop-culture references, and movie and TV spoofs ranging from The Little Mermaid to Cops. Having thoroughly punked Disney in the first film, Shrek 2 skewers Hollywood and Beverly Hills, rendered here as "Far, Far Away," a riot of boutiques (Abercrombie & Witch, Pewtery Barn) and red-carpet galas. Shrek 2 -- 2004's biggest box-office hit -- invites repeated viewings to catch all the jokes. But it's the extras that truly make this DVD an enchanting, play-it-again experience. Topping the dance party on the first Shrek DVD is the talent contest "Far, Far Away Idol," starring the one and only Simon Cowell.
All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Where the original Shrek was stuffed to the breaking point with jokes and bits of business, Shrek 2 has a much more relaxed tone. The most notable improvement this film makes over its predecessor, aside from the sophistication of the animation, is the belief the filmmakers have in the material. To be sure, the jokes are plentiful, but none of them feel as desperate as some of the material in Shrek. The biggest problem with the sequel, though, is that the film just is not funny enough. There are few big laughs in the film because the screenwriters have elected to tell a story that is rather intricate in its emotional deceptions. Where the first film's plot existed so that the endless string of bits could be played out, Shrek 2 actually aims for real poignancy, sentimentality, and character development. Had the filmmakers created characters with more complexity, or figured out how to make the film funnier, they could have topped the original. Instead they have made a film that is on occasion rather dull. Only Eddie Murphy as Donkey and Antonio Banderas as a swashbuckling rogue cat retain the energy of the first Shrek. They get just about all of the best moments, although Rupert Everett hits all the right notes as the very vain and very spoiled Prince Charming. These characters exhibit the best aspects of the anarchic spirit that helped make the first film a blockbuster. Undoubtedly, there will be a third Shrek film, and if they match the comedy of the first with the confidence of the second, DreamWorks will have made the best animated film in its short history.

Although not as good as the original,'Shrek 2' is still great fun and deserves 4 stars. While 'Shrek' was 'Beauty and the Beast' in reverse,this movie is more of an animated version of 'Meet the Parents'.It still brims with wit,fantasy,emotion,and adventure. Shrek has certainly returned but the real star of the picture is the dashing and hilarious Puss-in-Boots,brillantly voiced by Antonio Bandaras.The movie also carries an important message.You see,the Fairy Godmother said that ogres don't live happily ever after.But the truth is,everyone deserves to happily ever after.So watch 'Shrek 2' today!

Shrek 2 without a doubt topped its previous hit. This movie had a lot more jokes and humor in it. My parents loved it and had plenty of jokes for them to laugh at. Antonio Banderas stole the movie with his wit and extremely funny dialogue. If you saw Shrek, Shrek 2 is a must see!

Funny movie, better than the first. It wasn't a rip-off the original. But it gets annoying to read 'the number one comedy of all time.' I've seen funnier movies.

i was a little skeptical seeing this movie because i absolutely *hated* the first shrek. i was not amused by it at all & we all know that it's very rare that sequells beat the origional, but i was wrong. i felt this movie was *way* better than the first shrek movie. i really loved puss in boots. if it wasn't for that character, it wouldn't have worked. i loved the story and all the jokes. surprisingly-i loved it!

This movie is the best! I laughed so hard, my friend asked me if I was alright. I loved how they put all different fairy tales into this story, with prince Charming, the fairy godmother, Puss in Boots, and the ugly stepsister. I can't wait to see it again.

I would tell you how much I liked it but that's up to you to decide. All I'm going to say is that this movie got all 5 stars, I would recommend it to all.So go out and see it, you will think the same as me.

This by far beats the first movie.It was a lot more humorous with more puns and jokes than before.I love puss in boots he really stole the movie.The graphics in this movie are awesome they really make the movie look great.I can't wait till Shrek and the Knights of the Round Table comes out in 2006!!

This makes the hilarious original Shrek seem almost unprofessional! The humor has improved, and plot twists make it hilarious. Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz seem to back off to make room for the other new all star cast. Puss in Boots rocks (Police officer: We got catnip! Puss In Boots: It's not mine!).

They continue to develop the characters from the previous film, and all in all, it's a very entertaining family fun movie.

This is one of most ingenious films I've seen it years, and it is one of the greatest sequels of all-time. The cast is excellent, the animation is truly breathtaking, and the story has heart, truth, and soul to it. I really enjoyed it.

I gave this movie a 5 star because I enjoyed watching it with my family. We all talked about it on the way home from the movies. Since I love cats, Pussin Boots is my favorite charachter. Shrek 2 is a very good story and has a lot of hilarious parts that will keep you wanting another sequel. Usually, sequels are not that great compared to thier previous movie. However, Shrek 2 was better than the first move Shrek. I would recommend Shrek 2 to everyone because at some point they will be laughing!

The Movies "Sherk" and "Sherk 2" are very, very, very, very enjoyable. Both of the movies are great comdeys, funny, adventure and hilarious. I Love all the caracters, but the best one i think is Puss in Boots. Antonio Banderas is Fantasic Actor and this is no expertion. in all the shots he is in , puss in boots steal all of the charcters lines. In "Far Far Way Idol" Puss sings "These Boots Are Made For Walking". this song differly sults puss i think. the song is advertures as well as puss. All the way thoue the movie puss is augerying with Donkey(Eddie Murphy). Donkey does't like Puss becaues he is taking over his role as "AN TALKING ANIMAL" but by the end donkey likes puss and you can really see that in LIVIN' LA VDA LOCA. And the CD is great but they have put a lot of songs i woldn't think children would like ( E.g: "A Little Drop Of Poison" By "Tom Waits").

Shrek 2 was horrible. Every cliche in the movies was used, trying to be funny but it failed miserably. Very boring and annoying; terrible, not funny at all. Worst movie I've watched in a long time, didn't even finish it.

The opening Music Video type honeymoon thing wasn't my favorite, but the movie quickly picked up the laughs and made out to be a very funny movie. I loved all the scenes from other movies that I know. The Mission Impossible like scene with Pinochio was hilarious and the gingerbread man is still a very funny character, but Donkey and Puss in Boots steal the show. If you enjoyed the original you'll definetly like this one and if you haven't seen either of them I'd check them out.
