Shrek Forever After: The Final Chapter

post signature
Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers), falling prey to the ennui of everyday life, strikes a deal with sneaky Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn). He signs away a day of his life to feel one more time what it was like to be a feared ogre. Unfortunately, the day Shrek gives up is the day he was born, and he sees the world as it would be had he never existed. Quicker than you can say “George Bailey,” Shrek is plunged into a dismal land where Rumpelstiltskin is in charge and Shrek’s wife Fiona (Cameron Diaz) is the head of an ogre rebellion.

ClearPlay In Action!

As with the other Shrek movies, there is a smattering of crude humor and some inappropriate PG-type behavior. ClearPlay edits a couple of moments of dialogue, but spends most of its time cutting scenes of scatological humor. Diaper jokes, flatulence, and other bodily functions are gone, and the remaining movie is appropriate for all ages.

Is Shrek Forever After ready for the animation hereafter?…

While there are those who might say this series had already run its course, there is more story in Forever After than the other tired sequels. Although this fourth (and last?) installment is shorter on laughs, the It’s a Wonderful Life plot, overweight Puss ‘n’ Boots and a bizarre Pied Piper make it worthwhile.
