Should You Take the Kids To: Shrek Forever After
If you find yourself in need of mindless entertainment over the long weekend, Shrek Forever After will probably do the trick. The kids might enjoy it, too.
The Montreal Gazette’s review gives it three stars, calling it a “darker and more meditative film – allowing for a talking donkey and walking gingerbread man – that lacks the energy and fun of the early movies.” The Common Sense Media review – which targets parents – recommends the movie for age 6 and up.
Although this is probably the last Shrek movie, don’t worry – a Puss in Boots spinoff is scheduled to come out in 2011. What, no Gingerbread Man?
Shrek Forever After opens Friday, May 21. Check Cinema Montreal for show times.
