Shrek became Dreamworks’ flagship franchise, much like Toy Story was Pixar’s, and went on to win the inaugural Best Animated Feature at the Oscars.
It’s a subversive fairy tale, where the conventions of fairy tales are skewered, and so the tone of Shrek is well on the smart-ass side. Shrek (Mike Myers), a loner ogre,  finds a bunch of fairy tale characters in his swamp one day and goes to Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) to complain. Farquaad agrees to give Shrek total control of his swamp back if he retrieves Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) from her dragon-guarded, lava-surrounded castle.   Farquaad needs to be married to get control of the kingdom and he has chosen Fiona to be his bride.   Shrek takes the annoying new “friend”  Donkey (Eddie Murphy) with him to help save the princess.After saving Fiona, the princess wants the fairy tale romance, thinking Shrek is her true love.   But when he unmasks, she realizes how hideous he is. However, Fiona has a secret, one that makes her warm to  the ogre  and on the way back to Farquaad’s castle the two begin to like each other. Still, how would they make it work, especially since Fiona is reticent to tell her secret?
There are some truly funny moments in Shrek (the reaction of Shrek and Donkey after a Disney-esque theme park “welcome song” is priceless). But watching this again, it leaves a lot to be desired for the most part. Plus, being subversive is one thing, but then ending up playing along with the conventions of a fairy tale is a bit of a cop-out.
