Shrek the Third
Source: Catholic News Service
The saga of the lovable ogre continues in the same high quality vein of the first two films, as Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers) -- aided by a potential heir to Far Far Away's throne (Justin Timberlake) -- must rescue his wife, Fiona (Cameron Diaz), and the kingdom's other residents who have been captured by the evil Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) and an assortment of fairy-tale villains. Writer and co-director (with Raman Hui) Chris Miller's latest installment has a somewhat darker edge, though still plenty of laughs with Shrek's sidekicks, Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) in fine form, while the script's careful emphasis on good values such as believing in yourself, sacrificing for others, eschewing violence, and trusting in mankind's innate goodness override the occasional crude and mildly suggestive gags. Implied ogre nudity, some mildly off-color humor and innuendo, and the death of the king. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
