It's getting pretty tired right now.

Let's be honest, the Shrek movies were never that great. And it's becoming more and more evident with each new sequel.

I think these movies just lack much of the life and warmth of my favorite Pixar flicks and animated movies. I thought the first movie was some good fun and clever at times, but I'm not seeing it anymore.

And now they are having kids. Oy vey what is the fourth movie going to look like.

Honestly, Shrek 3D was a lot more fun than this movie, and that was only about 15 minutes.

I loved Shrek, and I loved Shrek 2. However, they really should have named the new one SHREK THE TURD, because it stunk. I hate to say it, but it was bad.

Personally, I liked it and thought that it was funny...maybe not as funny as the first, but surely as good as the second. Sure, it was hokey at times, but there were some really great laughs in there. My kids loved it, and were totally into the movie. It wasn't a classic, but I thought it was good. The scene with Gingy's life flashing before his eyes killed the whole theater!

Add me to the "pro" side of this debate. It wasn't up there with the first two films, but I liked the third Shrek. The total laugh-out-loud moments are sorely missed here, but Shrek and Puss still make this one worth watching. And though I didn't care much for Artie, I loved the addition of Merlin.

I will admit, though, that Donkey's spiel has gotten old. Although, "Look out! He's got a piano!" got a few laughs.

Oddly enough, though, I must give honorable mention to Captain Hook and the aforementioned piano. For some reason, this just...worked for me.

While my wife and I didn't think it was terrific, the kids thought it was. They love Gingy and pigs especially.

I thought Donkey and Puss didn't really have much of a role in this one, other than the body switching, which got old pretty fast.

Overall, nice message, decent movie, not great. $17.50 for five of us to see it. Good deal.

I thought it was pretty good.

"Look out, he's got a piano" was one of the funniest lines in the movie. The story was somewhat lacking, but the jokes were all there.

I wonder what Shrek 4 will be about.

I just got back from Shrek 4 with my 7 1/2 year old daughter and while there were a few lines that made me laugh, it was never sustained. Even my daughter didn't really laugh alot. She loved it, but I heard her laugh harder at the first and second Shrek's (we watched both of them on DCV over the past two months). Not enough slapstick comedy. And poorly written. It looks like they just mailed this one in for the paycheck. The High School had SO much promise that I wished they stayed there for another 5 or 10 minutes. Even more time with Merlin would have been good.

Oh well. I am sure it will make a boat load of money.

I enjoyed this one for what it was. I did laugh out loud when Gingy pooped a gumdrop ...

Good little movie, but not as good as the 2nd one.

I fell asleep partway through but the dunkettes loved it. A couple of good lines for the adults in the crowd. Stll some clever background puns. Cost me a lot more for 2 kids & 1 adult at 11:40am than it did the pie-brood. I hope Shrek 4 is straight to DVD.

We took the family on Saturday. The kids loved it, and my wife and I both thought it was ok. It was certainly better than a lot of other kids movies we go to, but the plot was just kind of there. I agree with dunk in that the best moments tended to be things in the background you noticed or some one-liners that flew over the kids heads.

I'm with Oliver. The wife & I saw it last night and I didnt like it at all. She thought it was cute, but I think I only laughed once or twice.

One of my buddies has sworn off sequels and I might have to do the same.

Noooo. Just third parts. Sequels are fine - look at SPIDER-MAN 2!

To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

Actually, having read the Jokerized versions, I'm very enthusiastic towards seeing this now.
