Shrek

Shrek [PG]


Parents and kids alike have come to know and recognize this loveably ugly creature. Shrek (the voice of Mike Myers) enjoys a life of solitude. So when he finds his swamp has been overrun by fairy tale creatures whose homes have been taken by the evil Lord Farquaad (the voice of John Lithgow), he sets off to set things right.

Shrek offers Lord Farquaad a deal — he will rescue Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), Lord Farquaad's intended bride, and in return, the homes of all the animals invading Shrek's swamp will be returned to their owners. With the faithful (and loud) Donkey (the voice of Eddie Murphy) by his side, Shrek embarks on his quest to save the Princess, but things don't go exactly as planned.

Check out Shrek 2, 3, and 4 for more adventures from Shrek and the gang.
