Check out Kidzworld's review of the movie Shrek, which tells the story about an ogre and how he's up to his chin in homeless fairy tale critters cuz of a pipsqueak named Farquaad. Shrek dives into adventure and fun with a chatty donkey and a beautiful pri

The movie Shrek has singing, dancing, elves, dwarves, knights and dragons. It's loaded to the brim with fairy tale creatures and topped off with a gigantic green ogre named Shrek. It's a story about breaking every fairy tale law ever invented and having a blast doing it.

All Shrek wants is the peace and quiet of his swamp but he's out of luck. The big guy's swamp is invaded by all kinds of fairy tale creatures. The local tyrant, Lord Farquaad, has kicked them all off of his land and they have nowhere else to go. Shrek wants his swamp back so he marches off to have a chat with the tiny tyrant and ends up with more adventure than he knows what to do with. The big green guy deals with everything including WWE-style tag-team wrestling, hordes of villagers with torches and pitchforks, huge firebreathing dragons, an annoying sidekick and massive castles. A couple of the jokes are lame but the action is very cool.

Everything you see in Shrek has been created with the sweetest computer graphics you'll see - at least until Final Fantasy hits the bigscreen. Every blade of grass, every hair on Shrek's big green butt and every little detail looks awesome. The skinny humans are a little wooden, almost like puppets, but the roly-poly fat guys (like Shrek) look perfect. The miniature Lord Farquaad is a creepy little brat with more body hair than an ape. Ick!

The actors doing the voices in Shrek are terrific. Mike Myers is a great ogre and Eddie Murphy is the chattiest donky in the world. He's almost as bad as Jar-Jar Binks in Star Wars but luckily he's way smarter. Cameran Diaz is cool as super-babe Princess Fiona - she even gets to kick butt Matrix style (watch the hair.)

Bottom Line: A good flick with a new spin on fairy tales. Check it out with your buddies but take a bathroom break when Shrek and the Donkey start talking about onions.

Let your inner ogre speak! and tell us about eating bugs, mud-baths and ear wax.
