Shrek Forever After

If best things come in threes, the opposite rings true for fours. Can we think of any fourth film in a celebrated series that might be remotely good? Number 4’s are usually lazy, unmotivated or unnecessary, resorting to the strokes that made the preceding movies memorable. “Shrek Forever After” is not different in recycling to the clever comedy that made the Ogre and his pals endearing. However, in adding a Capra-esque twist, this last adventure was, dare we say, decent. While it never tops the innovating satirical turns of Fairy Tales from the first two movies, “Shrek 4” manages to be more grounded that the inflated third film, softening the transition into the adult themes while still having some good fun.

This auvoir has Shrek (Mike Myers) trying to save his “Happily Ever After” after making a bad deal with sneaky Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn) has the Ogre’s life turn tabula rasa. Shrek gathers his friends Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) to help win Fiona’s (Cameron Diaz) heart all over again. Unfortunately, they don’t recall the green machine at all! With time running out, Shrek has some work to do to if he can regain his enchanting fable back.

Admittedly, Bitter Balcony was not thrilled about another trip to Far Far Away. Our experience with part 4 is like a bad date, and “Shrek 4” seemed like kissing another frog, yuck. To our surprise, this closure was more like causally seeing an old flame in a café, fondly catching up, and goodbyes are earnest and timely. Hopefully, DreamWorks will end their own love affair with Shrek and kindly close the book on his affable story.
