Shrek The Third
Dir: Chris Miller. US. 2007. 92mins. The 'greatest fairy tale never told' (as the original tag line put it) is missing a bit of its magic in this, the DreamWorks Animation CG fable about the big green ogre and his oddly familiar friends. With a new director and writers but not much in the way of new characters, Shrek The Third puts the emphasis more on family themes and less on the sort of witty comedy that gave the first two films their enjoyable edge.
