It’s not easy being green — especially if you’re a likable (albeit smelly) ogre named Shrek. On a journey to retrieve a princess from the clutches of a fire-breathing dragon and reclaim power over his own swamp, Shrek teams up with an unlikely sidekick — a wisecracking donkey. A sly and subversive turn on the fairy tale, Shrek not only won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, this offbeat and hilarious film even competed in the Cannes Film Festival – the first animated film since Peter Pan to have the honor.
