Feels refreshed and might be -- especially for relieved parents -- the most entertaining film of the franchise.

Shrek the Third, which vigilantly flirts with the grey matter between child's play and adult humor, creates curious questions for children while bringing back beloved characters for another joyride in Far Far Away.

Any film with the wherewithal to cast Ian McShane as Captain Hook has more going for it than flatulence.

From beginning to end, it's very, very funny. Watch it. It's great.

Unfortunately, a few flashes of brilliance don't stop this being a disappointing follow-up to the brilliant first two films. don't let that stop you from taking your kids to see it so they can make up their own minds.

Under-10s will probably enjoy it while adults will feel they've seen it all before. Which isn't quite the fairytale ending we'd all hoped for.

There's no doubt Shrek The Third will make potloads of money. Pity it shortchanges the audience with an underwhelming plot and characters you sense are just going through the motions. When it's good it's great. Overall, though, the magic is lacking.

"Ogre and out" say the critics, but the Shrek series still has laughs and legs.

Computer-generated animated movies with wall-to-wall jokes can be excruciating, but these jokes are the funniest money can buy.

Uninspired threequel, though the animation is better than ever and there's a steady stream of chuckles, even if it does lack the magic of the previous films.

Vibrant colors and finely-crafted backdrops pave the way for characters who, believe it or not, felt more alive in this world than they did back in those old books or cartoons.

Yo no sé si habrá una Shrek 4, pero si el ingenio y el sentido de la diversión se mantienen no me importaría en absoluto volver a visitar ese reino muy, muy lejano.

Shrek the Third is the X-Men: The Last Stand of Shrek movies: overstuffed with characters, short and fast-paced, and overdone just enough to convince some that it's time for the series to take a rest.

[Seus] valores de produção jamais deixam de impressionar o espectador. Infelizmente, o mesmo não pode ser dito sobre sua narrativa, que empalidece em comparação aos capítulos anteriores.

In less than three weeks on the American cinema circuit Shrek the Third has grossed a whopping $258 million! No wonder a Shrek 4 "prequel" and a Puss in Boots (starring only you-know-who) spin-off is already in the works for 2010 . . .
