I just got and watched for the first time Shrek The Third. It's by far the best one yet. I was cracking up from the very start and didn't stop all the way through. It's one laugh right after the next.
Shrek's Frog-in-law King dies and Shrek finds himself heir to the throne. But he'd already been filling in during the course of the King's illness and knows the royal life isn't for him. So, along with his faithful friends Donkey and Puss In Boots, he sails off to find Artie, the only other heir to the throne. Just before he leaves, his darling ogre wife announces she's expecting. Shrek is none too happy about it.
Meanwhile, Prince Charming organizes all the evil villians of fairytale life and attacks the Kingdom of Far Far Away and locks Fiona, her mother, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Cinderella in the dungeon as bait for Shrek. But Shrek is having a hard time convincing Artie to take on the throne. But once he learns of the trouble in Far Far Away, he and Artie both head to the kingdom for a rousing dinner theater production of stop the bad guy.
I LOVED this movie. I really loved it. It was so funny. John Cleese from Monty Python's Flying Circus reprises his role as the frog king. And for this movie, his Monthy Python sidekick, Eric Idle joins as Murry the scatty wizard. Julie Andrews is back as the queen, Cameron Diaz as Fiona, Mike Myers as Shrek, Eddie Murphy as Donkey and Antonio Banderas returns as the cute swashbuckling Puss. Justin Timberlake joins the cast as Artie the reluctant king. Believe me, you don't wanna miss this movie.
