ABSTRACT
DreamWorks' loose silver-screen adaptation of the William Steig fairy tale of the same name follows the adventures of Shrek, a grouchy green ogre living a life of solitude in his swamp who becomes upset when his place of residence is invaded by storybook creatures exiled by the fairytale-despising Lord Farquaad. Desiring a return to his old ways, Shrek sets out to the kingdom of Duloc with an annoying talking donkey in tow, soon participating in a plot to deliver the beautiful Princess Fiona to Farquaad as part of the Lord's scheme to become King that grows complicated when princess and ogre's unlikely feelings for one another become evident.
