SHREK FOREVER AFTER
The lovably ugly ogre, voiced once more by Mike Myers, returns for yet another adventure. This time, the plot for It’s a Wonderful Life is regurgitated, as Shrek wishes his life away and then tries to get it back. The action scenes are so-so, and the humor relies mostly on old pop songs and is lowlighted by the cheeky use of a racial slur. Let’s hope that the
Shrek franchise’s diminishing returns have reached the end point. Rated PG. 93 minutes. Screens in 2-D.
