It ain't easy bein' green -- especially if you're a likable (albeit smelly) ogre named Shrek. On a mission to retrieve a gorgeous princess from the clutches of a fire-breathing dragon, Shrek teams up with an unlikely compatriot -- a wisecracking donkey.

This film also introduces an incredibly sophisticated form of animation that had not been seen prior to this...it's a more sophisticated form of "claymation" that allows the characters facial expressions to convey complex emotions that actually allow the viewer inside the thought process of these characters...this dazzling new animation is often the closest thing to live action movie making that I have ever seen.
