Shrek Forever After

Plot: Shrek, bored with his now mundane family life, makes a deal with the devious Rumpelstiltskin to return to his old ogre ways for a day. But after signing the deal, Shrek finds himself in an alternate Far, Far Away where Stiltskin is king and his friends don’t recognize him.

Critic Consensus: “While not without its moments, Shrek Forever After too often feels like a rote rehashing of the franchise’s earlier entries.”
