Liz Campbell and Zach Fortais-Gomm from Realms of Peril and Glory (actual play podcast launching 18 August) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Zach’s choice Shrek 2.
Shrek 2 sees the return of Mike Myers Shrek, his newlywed Fiona (Cameron Diaz), Donkey (Eddie Murphy) plus new additions of Puss in Boots (Antonia Banderas) and Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders).
Shrek, Fiona and Donkey head to the kingdom of Far Far Away to attend a ball thrown by Fiona’s parents to celebrate their wedding. Shocked to see their daughter and son-in-law as ogres they predictably end up all falling out. Elsewhere the Fairy Godmother is displeased her son Prince Charming did not marry Fiona as agreed by her father and sets out a plan for revenge.
Shrek, like its predecessor, parodies other films based on fairy tales, features references to American popular culture and features an endless soundtrack of popular songs and cover versions.
Feelings for Shrek ranged from very high - Zach and Liz - to less engaged - Helen. Flixwatcher and guests were in agreement though on engagement though and Shrek 2 scores 3.40 overall.
