This is a cute sequel to Shrek, that manages to introduce one of the series most memorable characters: Puss in Boots. Shrek, Fiona and Donkey travel to Fiona’s home kingdom to meet her family. Uncovering of family secrets, a plotting fairy godmother, magic and fairytale mayhem ensue. Recommended for kids/families who like fast paced, humorous, cartoons which include the pop music of its day.
Do I really need to rehash the plot here? Shrek's and Fiona's newfound happiness together is put to the test when Shrek's royal in-laws, the king and queen of Far Far Away, invite their daughter and her new husband home for a marriage celebration. The folks expect Prince Charming, of course, and are less than prepared for the ogre factor. Prince Charming is none too happy, either, and his mother the glamorous Fairy Godmother (you just can't trust a fairy godmother anymore these days) sets out to right the wrong caused by Shrek's unexpected rescue of Fiona. The king is a willing accomplice, even going so far as to contract a hit on Shrek with the renowned feline assassin Puss in Boots. In order to keep Fiona, Shrek makes the ultimate sacrifice, turning himself into a handsome man, but the Fairy Godmother thwarts him at every turn. Even with the help of his friends from back home in the swamp, it looks like the honeymoon - and marriage itself - is over.
Everyone seems to be wild about Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots, and he does make a great addition to the Shrek universe. The heart of Shrek, however, still remains in the able voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy. It's pretty simple, really - if you enjoyed Shrek, you will certainly enjoy Shrek 2. The extras on the DVD add even more delight to the Shrek 2 experience. The Far Far Away Idol contest is a brilliant addition. You get not one but two filmmaker commentaries (but, sadly, no commentaries with any of the actors), and several looks at the making of the film are also worthy of your time. The rest of the special features are a little less impressive than they look, however - several of them basically just take you to selected scenes from the film itself. Still, there's plenty here to occupy your time and magnify the entertainment value of an ingenious film all but guaranteeing a good time for one and all.
Princess Fiona was once human and due to a curse she turned into an hideous ogre by night and a stunning beauty by day. The curse led Princess Fiona's parents to hide her in a castle guarded by a dragon where only Prince Charming could rescue her. However, Shrek beat Prince Charming to it and sealed the curse by kissing Princess Fiona, which turned her permanently into an ogre. This presents some issues for Shrek as he is well aware of how the world looks upon his kind, with an axe in one hand and a torch in the other. Having this in mind, Shrek refuses to travel and meet Fiona's human in-laws, which leads the married couple into their first argument. Shrek rapidly learns that he can no longer act the way he once did as it will only sour his relationship with his beloved Fiona, which means that he must begin to listen.
As in the first episode of Shreks adventures the audience is to experience an enlightening and hilarious journey with Shrek and his companion, the talkative and histrionic Donkey (Eddie Murphy's voice). This time around Shrek faces new challenges as he must confront family issues, stereotypes, mysterious assassins, love quarrels, political issues, and moral dilemmas in the Kingdom of Far Far Away. All these heavy issues are skillfully balanced with heart-warming and belly-aching comedy, which will enchant a wide range of audiences with its charisma.
