The first film in the beloved franchise is fun for the whole family! The green ogre Shrek (Mike Myers) finds his beloved swamp home taken over by fairy-tale folk who have been banished by scheming Lord Farquaad. In order to win the deed to his swamp and restore his solitude, Shrek must rescue Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), with help from a very talkative Donkey (Eddie Murphy). This fairytale mash-up will have kids and adults alike chuckling at clever jokes that bring a breath of fresh air to the classic fantasy. Content Advisory: mild language and some crude humor
