Movie Review - Shrek Forever After

This movie is awesome in every way. My son and husband went to go see it at the theatre, and when they returned, my husband insisted I see it as sooooooon as possible. He said, "I know you'll love it."

And I did.

It is the most wonderful love story I've seen in a long time. And it seems to perfectly fit with the thoughts that have been in my own head and I've shared here in the last week.

Completely realistic about the drudgery of every day life in the family... Shrek feels that he is trapped by his life. He loves Fiona and he loves his kids and he has many, many friends that share in his life. But he misses the freedom that he remembers nostalgically, before he was saddled with a family.

After a blowup at a birthday party, Shrek meets someone who offers him One Day As An Ogre, life, like it used to be, in exchange for "A day you don't even remember."

But Shrek finds out that the deal is as rotten as the dealer, Rumpelstiltskin. The day that was taken in exchange, was the day of his birth, and Shrek never existed, never met Donkey, never saved Fiona, and never married her and had their 3 beautiful children.

Shrek finds that what he had, was indeed the most wonderful life imaginable, and will do anything to get it back.
