Shrek the Third is a 2007 American computer animated comedy film from DreamWorks Animation, the third in the hugely popular Shrek film series. He's slayed the dragon, rescued the princess, married the ogress, and met the parents and now Shrek is going to become a father! When Princess Fiona announces that she is pregnant only moments before Shrek sets sail for the elite Worcester Academy, where they will retrieve Arthur Pendragon in order to save Shrek from having to become King of Far Far Away, Shrek's world is turned further on its head. Is he ready to be dad? Can he do this whole royalty thing? And why isn't anything as simple as it was in the old days, when it was just him, his stench, and his swamp? Big questions, true but when Shrek discovers that Arthur is the scrawny 16-year-old underachiever, Artie, and that Prince Charming has designs to get rid of Shrek once and for all, he has much bigger concerns. Shrek the Third is a hodgepodge of beloved fairytales told in a fresh, new way.

    Has its moments... But does a kids' movie really need, among other similar touches, a Hooters joke? I, for one, wouldn't want to have to explain it.
