Synopsis In this meet-the-parents sequel to the romantic fairy tale in which two ogres fall in love, SHREK 2 brings the loveable green menace (voiced by Mike Meyers) back to the big screen for a second round of mischief. This time around, in addition to the voices of Cameron Diaz (as Shrek's sweetheart Fiona) and Eddie Murphy (as their companion Donkey), Julie Andrews and John Cleese chime in as Fiona's parents, Queen Lillian and King Harold. Surprising newcomer Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas)--a slyly funny tabby honed for swashbuckling adventure--joins the crew. Last but certainly not least, the conniving duo of vain Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) and his power-hungry mom, the Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders), spice up the action. When Fiona insists that her new husband Shrek visit her parents, they travel to Far Far Away (a Disneyfied medieval version of Hollywood) where everything goes wrong. The King and Queen are outraged to see their daughter married to an ogre, and while Fiona tries to calm them, Shrek sets out to find a solution. He finds it, in the form of a Happily Ever After potion, which only complicates matters, drawing all parties into a confused exchange of magic and spells, all for the sake of true love. With shimmering animation giving SHREK 2 near-3-D visuals, the witty scripting and eclectic pop music soundtrack keep the film hopping along with an upbeat pace. Holding Out for a Hero by Frou Frou, and Livin' la Vida Loca by Eddie Murphy are the most raucous of the film's many great songs, though more subtle numbers such as Accidentally in Love by Counting Crows, and Little Drop of Poison by Tom Waits certainly enrich some key scenes of this enjoyable family film.[I]t's got heart and delirium in equal doses, as well as a firecracker rhythm all its own.SHREK 2 is double the fun of the original: more magical and more technically assured.Mr. Banderas's campy suavity and Puss's convincingly animated fur add some new looks and rhythms to the formula.[With] more elaborate visuals than the original and some great voice casting.[J]ust as funny, sweet and engaging as the first film starring the big galoot.SHREK 2 is bright, lively and entertaining...SHREK 2 is great.[M]uch of the humour remains gleefully satirical.[A] gem in the bigger-better-snappier tradition of TOY STORY 2.
