I was dubious about going to see this film as there had been so much hype created. I think that it is definately a 'boys' film but despite that I found it hilarious. I was unsure whether the locals in the film knew they were being put up or whether they thought that it was real. I felt slightly sorry for them if they thought it was real but it made for some great comedy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 6 Dec 2007
I really enjoyed the first 2 Shrek films but I feel that they should have stopped there. While this film still has laugh-out-loud moments, it lacks the excitement of the former films. They stuck to the original format which makes it feel that they are re-hashing old story lines. I still enjoyed this film but not as much as I had hoped to.
