Product Description

Product Description

Double bill of the post-modern computer-animated comic fantasy. In the first film, Shrek (2001), reclusive ogre Shrek (Mike Myers) lives in a swamp on the edges of a fairytale kingdom. The vain yet diminutive ruler of the land, Prince Fahrquaad (John Lithgow) decides to streamline his kingdom by getting rid of all the fairytale characters, who promptly decamp to live in Shrek's swamp. Faced with these unwanted tenants, Shrek strikes a deal with the Prince, promising to find and return with Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), marriage to whom will finally confer on the Prince his kingly status. In return, the Prince promises to evict the various characters living on Shrek's land. Shrek's task is further irritated by the unwanted company of a tirelessly wise-cracking Donkey (Eddie Murphy). In the sequel, Shrek 2 (2004), Shrek returns from his honeymoon with Princess Fiona 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).

From Amazon.co.uk

Both of the hit animated movies in one package.

Full of verve and wit, Shrek is a computer-animated adaptation of William Steig's delightfully fractured fairy tale. Our title character (voiced by Mike Myers) is an agreeable enough ogre who wants to live his days in peace. When the diminutive Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) evicts local fairy tale creatures (including the now-famous Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio and the Gingerbread Man), they settle in the ogre's swamp and Shrek wants answers from Farquaad. A quest of sorts starts for Shrek and his new pal, a talking donkey (Eddie Murphy), where battles have to be won and a princess (Cameron Diaz) must be rescued from a dragon lair in a thrilling action sequence. The story is stronger than most animated fare but it's the jokes that make Shrek a winner. The PG rating is stretched when Murphy and Myers hit their strides. The mild potty humour is fun enough for the 10-year-old but will never embarrass their parents. Shrek is never as warm and inspired as the Toy Story films, but the realistic computer animation and a rollicking soundtrack keeps the entertainment in fine form. Produced by DreamWorks, the film also takes several delicious stabs at its cross-town rival, Disney. --Doug Thomas

In Shrek 2, the newlywed Shrek and Princess Fiona are invited to Fiona's former kingdom, Far Far Away, to have their 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
When Shrek first hit our cinema screens a few years ago, it was likely that your whole family was grabbed by the charm of the many characters, before being thrown around all over the place in a flurry of adventure, comedy and downright hilarity. Shrek appealed to all parts of the family by remembering that not everyone who would be watching the film would be under the age of 8. It was funny in many different ways, and the characters were completely loveable.
The magic wasn't quite replicated in Shrek 2, but everyone involved gave it their best shot, so at least the film doesn't fall under the 'trashy sequel' category. The parody of Hollywood and the lifestyle of celebrity is compelling in today's current gossip-obsessed culture, yet the addition of more loveable characters, especially Puss in Boots, ensures that the film appeals to the various parts of its audience like its predecessor.
Indeed, I bought this box set, and I'm 20, and currently living away from my family! It contains two of the best animated films around (as long as we're not talking about Pixar, which I'll sweep under the rug), and has certainly kept me entertained. Far Far Away Idol (the alternate 'ending' from Shrek 2) is something the kids will love.

Format: DVD
Shrek 1 when it first came out was comical genoius with mike myers as the voice of shrek,eddie murphy as the voice and donkey and many other great voices. The film is most certainly not just a childs film, but a film for all ages as long as you open your mind up a seemingly child like appearance the film gives. When shrek 2 came out i was expecting a failure, no where near as good as the first, but it is!!! The film is great I highly recommend buying this 2 disc set as it is fantastic

Format: DVD
Shrek (1) made its mark in film history as the best animated film for decades. It combined superb animation, an excellent plot and a donkey! Despite its 'U' rating, Shrek was full of laughs and is guaranteed to be enjoyed by adults and children. There are some special features exclusive to this box-set so it's well worth buying if you don't already own Shrek 1.
Many believed that Shrek 2 couldn't compare to the original and that it would be a disappointment. This was certainly not the case! Shrek 2 was filled with humour and topped off by another great storyline. I won't go into detail about the story but it's definitely worth seeing. It's a pity you can't give more than five starts because this film certainly deserves them!
Altogether, I would recommend the box-set to ANYONE! The two Shrek films are worth buying on their own, but when combined with tons of extra features and footage, you get the ULTIMATE SHREK PACKAGE!

These movies Shrek and Shrek2 sum up to one word, Brilliance. You can not get bored of watching these movies and if you have a low budget it is worth buying. There is also far far away idol which is the equivalant to pop idol and you can vote for your best act. There isn't anything in the movies I do not like and is compatible for kids and adults.

These movies are great like most animated movies that dreamworks produce. It is great for the kids but has an underlying adult humour which is great. This means that i can watch it and laugh at the same time my son watches it. Very funny excellent characters. The second movie follows on really well and is just as entertaining as the first.
If you have kids i would buy it.

Format: DVD
Nicely packaged box set containing the first two (and only two worth buying) animated movies about the grumpy green ogre. Before the franchise became little more than a cash cow, these films had knocked animation on its head and are surely ingrained in the public consciousness.
Really a must-have set for all families; highly recommended.

Usually a film with the number two in the title is disapointing .
Not so with Shrek 2 as good as Shrek if not better went to bed singing some of the songs (And they stuck in my mind for over a week)
Not just a must see but a must see again and again

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mr. C. D. Steele on 20 Dec. 2004
Format: DVD
These two films are fantastic and you'd be a fool to miss them. You'll laugh from start to finish. Particularly funny, is the 'Donkey' character voiced by Eddie Murphy. A well thought out plot, with great animation and, well everything. Shrek is not just for kids, I'm 33 and I thoroughly enjoyed both films. Buy this DVD.
