The lovably ugly green ogre returns with his green bride and furry, hooved friend in Shrek 2. The newlywed Shrek and Princess Fiona are invited to Fiona's former kingdom, Far Far Away, to have the marriage blessed by Fiona's parents--which Shrek thinks is a bad, bad idea, and he's proved right: the parents are horrified by their daughter's transformation into an ogress, a fairy godmother wants her son Prince Charming to win Fiona, and a feline assassin is hired to get Shrek out of the way. The computer animation is more detailed than ever, but it's the acting that make the comedy work--in addition to the return of Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, and Cameron Diaz, Shrek 2 features the flexible voices of Julie Andrews, John Cleese and Antonio Banderas, plus Jennifer Saunders as the gleefully wicked fairy godmother. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.

equel to the 2001 computer-animated children's smash hit comedy 'Shrek'. Shrek (Mike Myers) returns from his honeymoon with his bride Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) to find an invitation from Fiona's parents, King Harold (John Cleese) and Queen Lilian (Julie Andrews) asking the newlyweds over to the Land Far, Far Away for dinner. On their arrival, they find that the King and Queen are less than pleased to see their daughter hitched to an affable green ogre, and looking rather the worse for wear herself compared to her former dazzling royal brilliance. When reminded by a conniving Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders) of an ancient deal to match Fiona with her son, the vain and pompous Prince Charming (Rupert Everett), Shrek's new in-laws and their accomplices pull out all the stops to rid their kingdom of Shrek and restore their daughter to her former beauty - including hiring the services of notorious swashbuckling ogre-slayer Puss-in-Boots (Antonio Banderas). Eddie Murphy also reprises his role as the faithful Donkey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yep, it's good! 31 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
First off, I have actually got this DVD before it is released. This is because i am a member of a DVD club and got it delivered on Saturday morning. (30th October)
The second bit, the talking packaging. It is funny, you press your down on the sign that the gingerbread man is holding (that says press me) and donkey says "Shrek and Donkey on another whirlwind adventure". When this is heard through the built in speaker there is also a light that appears behind donkeys teeth so it lights them up!
When you open the DVD case there is a Velcro pad on the side that when opened reveals a 3d pop up of the characters. The actual DVD case is inside the cardboard covering area around it and is accessed by sliding the DVD case up or down.
Right, now the actual film itself. I thought the first of the Shrek films was really really good and this one is just the same. The only thing I found with Shrek 2 was that the plot was not as strong as the first, but I'm sure this is because this is actually the first time I've watched Shrek 2. But the film is still as funny with famous voice-overs etc. There are a few scenes in the film that are very funny and you will not forget soon (hairball scene?).
The special features are quite good as well. The far far away idol is quite funny as well, which shows most of the characters from the films singing songs that are relevant to them in the story. The far far away idol is judged by no other than Mr. Simon Cowell. He gives comments on what he likes and doesn't like about the singers. After hearing all the songs and judges comments (Shrek, Fiona and Simon) you can pick who you think deserves to win far far away idol, which results in a different ending showing the winning characters celebration.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Funnier Than the First 2 May 2007
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Shrek (Mike Myers) and his new bride Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) are just settling down to their happy ever after when they get a summons. Fiona's parents (Julie Andrews and John Cleese) want to meet their new son-in-law. Shrek knows that their little secret will ruin the meeting. After all, who wants an ogre for a son-in-law, even if your daughter is one, too?

Against his better judgment, the two set out accompanied by Donkey (Eddie Murphy). When they reach Fiona's kingdom, Far Far Away, their reception is everything that Shrek feared it would be, which crushes Fiona.

Unbeknownst to them, danger is lurking in their future. Fiona's Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders) had a deal with Fiona's father. Now the two will do whatever it takes to make that come true.

Can Shrek bring Fiona happiness? Will the evil plot succeed?

The first movie was the surprise hit of 2001, so a sequel was only natural. The first one was original, clever, and had a great message. This one isn't as original and is a variation on the same theme, but it is funnier. The jokes and cultural references are everywhere. It may make the movie dated in 10 years, but for now, it is hilarious.

All the major voice talent is back and again do a great job of bringing their characters to life. The new actors fit right in. Technology has advanced in the three years between movies, and it makes for a better movie this time around.

The only flaw with the film is that, once again, some of the laughter comes from crude jokes and suggestive situations. Since this movie aims at kids, that's a disappointment. Watch it before you let your kids see it to determine if you think it is appropriate for them.

Having said that, this movie will make anyone who watches it laugh.

1.0 out of 5 stars GREAT FILM - SHAME ABOUT THE UK DVDs 13 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I cannot recommend 'Shrek 2' highly enough - it's a dazzlingly witty and superbly crafted movie. Unfortunately, it deserves a proper DVD release and this isn't it: both the two-disc and the single disc UK releases are CUT (farewell Fiona's headbutt) and DUBBED (bye bye Larry King and Joan Rivers). If that doesn't matter, then order away. If it does matter, then buy the Australian editions which are dual region anyway (R2/R4), so you can play them on your normal DVD player without having to be multiregion. It's a great film and it deserves to be seen UNCUT and with its ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK. Rant over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shreks back! well, almost... 29 Dec 2006
Format:DVD
Shrek was a massive box office hit. So much so, that Shrek 2 became one of the most anticipated animation sequels in years. It had a seriously tough act to follow, but when word got out that much the original team had been invited back to produce the goods, expectations were understandably high. More so when several new big name stars joined the cast (including Antonio Bandera, John Cleese, Rupert Everet and Julie Andrews) Add to that was the technological advancements made over the last few years... the extra lighting effects, the subtle changes in skin texture and so on.

And to a degree, these elements all came together quite nicely to produce a highly enjoyable film. Everything definitely seems a little more polished. The animation is crisper, the sequences tighter. The plot is witty and well thought out. The characters are strong - the Fairy godmother is deliciously wicked, Puss in Boots wonderfully portrayed. It is an excellent production.

And yet, despite the added glitz and glamour, despite the added effort, something seemed to be missing. Perhaps it was the hype. Perhaps it was the curse of the sequel. Perhaps it was because the ground it was covering was no longer fresh. Perhaps. Either way, in spite of some excellent voice over performances, most notably from Eddie Murphy, delivered his lines with excellent comedic timing, and some superb sequences, the `meet the parents' scene, for example, the movie failed to reach the heights of its predecessor. Still, when all is said and done, it's definitely worth a watch. We do all, after all, have a right to know what happens to married couples after hearing those ill fated words, `happily ever after'!
