You've never met a hero quite like Shrek, the endearing ogre who sparked a motion picture phenomenon and captured the world's imagination with...the Greatest Fairy Tale Never Told! The critics are calling SHREK "not just a brilliant animated feature, but a superb film on any level" (Larry King, USA Today).

Relive every moment of Shrek's (Mike Myers) daring quest to rescue feisty Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) with the help of his loveable loudmouthed Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and win back the deed to his beloved swamp from scheming Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). Enchantingly irreverent and "monstrously clever" (Leah Rozen, People Magazine), SHREK is ogre-sized adventure you'll want to see again and again!

Easter Eggs
Dreamworks Home Video has hidden two fun Easter Eggs on their 2-disc Special Edition release of the animated comedy 'Shrek.' Here’s how to find them.

On both discs from the 2-disc set, go to the main menu and from there to the 'Special Features' menu and highlight the 'Main Menu' entry at the bottom of the screen. Now press the 'Up' arrow key on your remote control to highlight the bellybuttons of the Gingerbread Man. Press 'Enter' now and you will get a 'Shrek Fun Fact' – a little piece of trivia information from the movie. Every time you select this hidden feature, a randomly selected Fun Fact comes up.

Another Easter Egg is hidden on the second disc of the set. From the main menu, go to the 'Play' menu entry and press the 'Up' arrow key to highlight the music note in the background. This will allow you to view the 'Shrek Karaoke.'
