Movie synopsis
In this meet-the-parents sequel to the romantic fairy tale in which two ogres fall in love, SHREK 2 brings the loveable green menace (voiced by Mike Meyers) back to the big screen for a second round of mischief. This time around, in addition to the voices of Cameron Diaz (as Shrek's sweetheart Fiona) and Eddie Murphy (as their companion Donkey), Julie Andrews and John Cleese chime in as Fiona's parents, Queen Lillian and King Harold. Surprising newcomer Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas)--a slyly funny tabby honed for swashbuckling adventure--joins the crew. Last but certainly not least, the conniving duo of vain Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) and his power-hungry mom, the Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders), spice up the action.When Fiona insists that her new husband Shrek visit her parents, they travel to Far Far Away (a Disneyfied medieval version of Hollywood) where everything goes wrong. The King and Queen are outraged to see their daughter married to an ogre, and while Fiona tries to calm them, Shrek sets out to find a solution. He finds it, in the form of a Happily Ever After potion, which only complicates matters, drawing all parties into a confused exchange of magic and spells, all for the sake of true love. With shimmering animation giving SHREK 2 near-3-D visuals, the witty scripting and eclectic pop music soundtrack keep the film hopping along with an upbeat pace. "Holding Out for a Hero" by Frou Frou, and "Livin' la Vida Loca" by Eddie Murphy are the most raucous of the film's many great songs, though more subtle numbers such as "Accidentally in Love" by Counting Crows, and "Little Drop of Poison" by Tom Waits certainly enrich some key scenes of this enjoyable family film.

"SHREK 2 is double the fun of the original: more magical and more technically assured."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (06/10/2004)

"Mr. Banderas's campy suavity and Puss's convincingly animated fur add some new looks and rhythms to the formula."

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (05/18/2004)

"With more elaborate visuals than the original and some great voice casting."
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan (05/18/2004)

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (05/28/2004)

"A gem in the bigger-better-snappier tradition of TOY STORY 2."
Premiere - Sara Brady (11/01/2004)

Review For: Shrek 2 (DVD, 2004)

This was even better than Shrek! This is truly a love story between Shrek and Fiona! If you have small children or grandchildren this is great for them. They will love the music and the characters. Can't wait for Shrek 3 to come out on DVD!
