Shrek Forever After, in 3-D, is the 4th installment (and last?) in the Shrek series. The movie is a twist of “It’s a Wonderful Life and is a bit frenzied. There are several intense sequences that may frighten younger children and the witty dialog of prior Shrek movies is missing, leaving adults wanting more.
Shrek (Mike Myers) is now a family man in the midst of a mid-life crisis. Shrek is missing his “Ogre” adventures and makes a deal with the manipulative villian Rumplestiltskin to bring some excitement to his boring life. He agrees to give up one day of his childhood in return for no adult responsibilities. Rumblestilskin picks Shrek’s birthday and suddenly, Shrek finds himself in an alternate universe of Far, Far Away; where Rumplestiltskin is king, witches hunt “Orgers” and Shrek and Fiona(Cameron Diaz) have never met. Shrek has only 1 day to meet Fiona, now a warrior Princess, and get a kiss from his true love. Fiona is not interested in Shrek at all and the usual characters, Donkey and Puss and Boots, now a fat housecat, are enlisted to help Shrek.
We meet a new cast of characters played by celebrities; Ryan Seacrest, Jane Lynch, Meredith Veira, Larry King and Regia Philbin.
The new characters have the potential to add another dimension to the movie but are not fleshed out.
