Poster - SHREK 2

The film opens with Shrek (voiced over
by Mike Myers) and his beloved (now turned into an Ogre) Princess Fiona
(Cameron Diaz) enjoying themselves on their honeymoon at sand-kissed
beaches. Returning from their romantic idyll, Shrek and Princess Fiona
are summoned by Fiona's parents, the king (John Cleese) and queen
(Julie Andrews) of the "Kingdom Far, Far Away" (a fairy-tale version of
Beverly Hills). After much discussion, the ogre couple finally decide
to leave for the celebration at the "Kingdom Far, Far Away." Donkey
also accompanies them with his whining and one-liner spouting all
intact.

All along the journey to the
"Kingdom Far, Far Away", you cannot resist but guffaw at the nasty
doings of the Donkey. Once the ogre couple reach the kingdom for a
homecoming celebration, Princess Fiona's parents are taken aback when
they learn that their princess has married an ogre and become one, too
(as always its the parents who are the last ones to find out). That's
when the king summons a Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders) to
eliminate Shrek and have his daughter Fiona married to Fairy
Godmother's foppish son Prince Charming (Rupert Everett). The king also
calls upon a famous yet cute little ogre hunter Puss In Boots (Antonio
Banderas) for this task, but the feline eventually joins forces with
Shrek and Donkey.

Puss in Boots

Banderas is
excellent with his Spanish accent that suits right with Puss in Boots's
profile and also again gets a chance to play Zorro.

Throughout
the movie you can find nasty references to movies like Spider-Man, The
Wizard of Oz, The Lord of the Rings, The Matrix and Charlie's Angels.
The original sound tracks of the film are music to ears, and the
computer animation - gorgeous! Though its only rarely that an idea of a
sequel works, in this case, the storyline picks up seamlessly from the
first film and doesn't feel forced at all. Shrek 2 is downright funny
and wonderful - a must-see for the young and the old.
