Shrek 2 Special

Teruko Okabe 2005/10/21



Once upon a time, there was an ogre named Shrek who lived in solitude with his wife Fiona in their swamp. One day, they received an invitation from Fiona’s parents to come and visit them in the kingdom of Far Far Away. Despite Shrek’s reluctance to leave the comfort of his home, they embark on a journey to meet Fiona’s parents.

Upon arriving at the kingdom, Shrek and Fiona are greeted by a lavish reception but soon realize that not everyone is happy about their presence. Fiona’s father, King Harold, disapproves of her marriage to an ogre and hires Puss in Boots, a skilled assassin, to eliminate Shrek.

Meanwhile, Fairy Godmother has plans of her own. She wants her son Prince Charming to marry Fiona so that he can become king. In order to achieve this goal, she offers Harold a deal: she will help him get rid of Shrek if he agrees to make Charming marry Fiona.

As Puss in Boots sets out on his mission to kill Shrek, he finds himself struggling with his conscience and ends up befriending the ogre instead. Together with Donkey (Shrek’s best friend), they hatch a plan to stop Fairy Godmother and Charming from gaining control over Far Far Away.

Their plan involves breaking into Fairy Godmother’s factory and stealing a love potion that will make Shrek irresistible to Fiona all over again. With this newfound power of persuasion, Shrek convinces Fiona that they belong together despite what others might think.

In the end, good prevails over evil as Fairy Godmother is defeated and Charming is exposed for his true self - a selfish and cowardly prince who only cared about power and wealth. Harold reconciles with his daughter and welcomes both Shrek and Donkey into their family with open arms.

Shrek 2 teaches us the importance of staying true to ourselves and standing up against those who try to bring us down. It also shows us that true love can conquer all obstacles, no matter how big or small they may seem.




Shrek 2 is a delightful animated movie that is full of laughs and heartwarming moments. Released in 2004, the film was directed by Andrew Adamson, Kelly Asbury, and Conrad Vernon and produced by DreamWorks Animation. It is the sequel to the original hit movie “Shrek” which was released in 2001.

The story picks up where the first movie left off. Shrek (Mike Myers) and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) are now happily married, but trouble arises when Fiona’s parents invite them to visit their castle in Far Far Away. The king (John Cleese) and queen (Julie Andrews) are shocked when they discover that their daughter has married an ogre. They had arranged for her to marry Prince Charming (Rupert Everett), who was supposed to rescue her from a tower guarded by a dragon in the first movie.

Shrek and Fiona decide to go on this visit, hoping they can win over Fiona’s parents despite their initial negative reaction. Along with Donkey (Eddie Murphy), they set out on a journey that brings them face-to-face with some hilarious characters including Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas), who becomes one of the main attractions of the movie.

Throughout their journey, Shrek and Fiona struggle with feeling like they don’t fit into each other’s worlds. This dynamic adds depth to the story as it explores themes of acceptance, identity, and love. However, these themes never detract from the humor that runs throughout the entire film.

One of the strengths of this movie is its witty dialogue which is filled with pop culture references that will keep both children and adults entertained. The animation itself is visually stunning with great attention given to detail such as character expressions and movements.

Another standout aspect of Shrek 2 is its music score which includes popular songs such as “Livin’ La Vida Loca” by Ricky Martin and “Accidentally in Love” by Counting Crows. These songs blend seamlessly into the movie, adding to its fun and upbeat atmosphere.

Overall, Shrek 2 is a fantastic sequel that lives up to the high standards set by its predecessor. It’s an entertaining family movie filled with humor, heart, and unforgettable characters. The film teaches valuable lessons about acceptance while still managing to be a laugh-out-loud comedy that will have you quoting lines for days.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
