Why I Watched the New Shrek Forever After Movie

Yes, I'm middle aged, no I have no young children or grandchildren. And yes, I went to the theater and watched Shrek The Final Chapter movie. What can I say? I'm young at heart, I guess. I went with my teenage daughter, who also wanted to see it, so that's my official excuse for watching the kids' movie.

Why Shrek the Final Chapter Movie Is the Perfect Movie Title

So in a nutshell, the writers of Shrek the Final Chapter gave it an apt name. Shrek Forever After is the fourth movie in the Shrek franchise. After suffering for less than two hours watching it, I really don't think there could be another profitable Shrek movie.

But, they squeezed the turnip for the last bit of blood money it would give up, and Shrek is the number 1 movie in theaters right now. Just so you know, I didn't watch Shrek The Final Chapter in 3D, so maybe that would have made for a better review, but I doubt it.

Shrek Forever After Characters

Shrek The Final Chapter trailer looked really entertaining. By the way, if you want to see a Shrek 4 trailer, there are several Shrek Forever After movie trailers at the bottom of this page.

Anyway, I was hoping to spend some fun time with the lovable Shrek characters. And they all came back for this movie- Shrek, of course, Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots, Gingerbread Man, Pinochio- they're all here. And the famous voices behind the characters participated, too- Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, and Antonio Banderas.

Shrek Forever After? Shrek The Final Chapter? Shrek 3D?

And I am also not sure what the official latest Shrek movie name is- Shrek The Final Chapter 3D? Shrek Forever After? Shrek The Final Chapter 3D Forever After? I really don't know. But the movie poster was titled 'Shrek The Final Chapter 3D', so that's what I'm using here.

Shrek Forever After 3D Summary

The movie shows Shrek celebrating his kids' first birthday with all of his family and friends. Shrek is facing the classic midlife crisis. He wishes his life hadn't changed so drastically since his younger days. He finds his present life dull and boring.

So, he does what any ogre would do. He signs a magical contract with the evil Rumpelstiltskin to have just one glorious day of his younger days back again. He can be an ogre feared by everyone and have some old fashioned fun scaring the villagers. And then he can go back to his quiet, married life with kids.

But Rumpelstiltskin tricks Shrek, and Shrek loses all that he loved so dearly. Can he get his old life back again? Watch the Shrek movie and see!

Shrek The Final Chapter Movie Characters

The only saving graces to this new Shrek the Final Chapter movie were Donkey and Puss in Boots mostly. Especially Donkey- he still made me almost laugh out loud a couple of times. And Pinocchio and Gingerbread Man had some funny moments, too.

The most annoying part of the new Shrek movie was Rumpelstiltskin. He reminded me of a cross between those weird troll dolls from a few years back and Hermey the elf from Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer on crack. He was irritating to the extreme. His voice had the same effect on me as fingernails scratching a chalkboard.

Shrek The Final Chapter Movie Review Summary

Oh yeah, there is one more thing that's great about this movie. As I mentioned earlier, it's only ninety minutes long. So, I didn't waste too much of my life watching it.

Unless you have kids that want to watch this, I don't advise you to pay for a movie ticket. I don't even think I would pay a dollar for those movie vending machines to watch this new Shrek movie. If you decide to watch Shrek the Final Chapter anyway, don't say I didn't warn you.

      I saw Shrek with my 4-year-old and 6-year-old godsisters and my mother. My mother and I kind of enjoyed it but the 6-year-old looked bored for half the movie and the 4-year-old continuously asked "when it it over?" Then she told me she didn't like it so, yeah, it wasn't a good movie experience.

      I do love Shrek and I am still a bit further down the ladder but why not. People who can't enjoy things like that are very sad people. Thank you for a lovely review.
