*** 1/2

The first thing I need to say about “Shrek Forever After” is it didn’t suck. Thank God. My mom thought it would stink and my sister, Carol didn’t even go with us. But surprise, the final Shrek movie is well plotted, better written and more laugh inducing. It brings back some of the magic of the first two films. Read More»
