Shrek Forever After


Shrek is fed up with his family life and decides he’d like his old, carefree ogre life back. He makes a deal with Rumpelstiltskin that ends up such that he was never born. He returns to Bedford Falls to find it is now ruled by … wait a minute, that’s Jimmy Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life. Okay, so Far Far Away is now ruled by Rumpy and a lot of green witches, clones of Margaret Hamilton. And so forth and so on. It’s all good for a few laughs but much of the life went out of this series with the third one, and I’m glad this will be the last one.
