Saw this a while ago, but haven't got round to reviewing it til now.
Well, what can you say about a third instalment of a film series that won't be said anywhere else? As a film it's OK. Not a patch on the original but with a few good laughs And when I say few I mean few. One sequence, where a fearful dad-to-be Shrek feverishly dreams he's being assaulted by zillions of ogre baby shreks is funny for the first few seconds, then it gets boring.
The problem with Shrek 3 is that you know the characters and so this feels a bit like one of those circular letters which arrive in Christmas cards from people you haven't heard from since last Christmas. You can read them and find out what's happening in their lives, but realistically, if you don't read them your life won't be any poorer.
