Commentary

Considering the sick sums of money that 2001's Shrek raked in at the theaters and on video, it's no surprise that a sequel was produced. What's surprising is that Shrek 2 not only lives up to its beloved predecessor, but also frequently surpasses it. The three central stars from the first installment all return for another round of laughs: Mike Myers delivers his cranky Scot routine for the voice of the titular ogre, Cameron Diaz chimes in as the love of his life, Princess Fiona, and Eddie Murphy deftly jabbers away as verbose comedic sidekick Donkey.

Thoroughly family-friendly, Shrek 2 is one of those rare movies that can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages. It really has something for everyone, from little children who don't know what's what to their frazzled parents who hate being dragged to lame kids' flicks.


Rating: 8 out of 10 [0=Abysmal, 5=Average, 10=Excellent]
