Shrek Forever After

After the hiccup of Shrek The Third, the latest addition to this established franchise tries its best to reinvigorate the series. It ticks all the right boxes of what constitutes a proper kid’s movie these days.


It has an underlying storyline of being true to one’s self, appreciating the good things one has and of course the virtue of believing in the power of the family unit.  

The only thing that is missing this time around is the humour. The filmmakers in their efforts to create a wholesome and worthwhile viewing experience for the young have almost completely removed the bawdy laughs that made the first two Shrek films so much fun.

It might be a too structured script writing ethos or just a concerted effort to make the film a less risqué viewing experience, the end result is a film that might provide decent food for thought but one that just doesn’t deliver enough laughs. The first two films built up an interesting collection of characters that are sadly underutilized this time.

While parents taking their children to this film will have to field far fewer embarrassing questions on the ride home, they will probably forget the experience themselves rather quickly.
