    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Shrek 2 may be computer-generated, but its innate heart and glorious sense of mischief make it one of the best and most humane movies of the summer. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A sequel was called for, and so a sequel has arrived -- but it's a slightly zombie-like version, with the size, look and shape of the original movie, but without its lightness or spirit, its soul. show more

    Just as funny, sweet and engaging as the first film starring the big galoot. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    There's an old-Hollywood feel to the movie's solid showmanship and unabashed sophistication. These days it's feature-length 'toons, sporting the newest-fangled technology, that take kids and adults alike back to the movies' good old days. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Shrek 2 is a dream, a sequel as exhilarating and riotously funny as 2001's top-grossing original. show more

    Shrek 2 delivers more fun than there is slime in a green ogre's swamp. Much of that is thanks to Antonio ­Banderas, who runs away with Shrek 2 on little cat feet. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Reunites one of the best voice casts ever for an animated film to create a shrewd entertainment that again successfully aims its jokes at various age groups. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    So gorgeously animated and so thoroughly entertaining for all ages that only an ogre would complain it's not quite as fresh as the original. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The Shrek franchise is alive and well -- Model 2 is zippier, sleeker, with ever-improving graphics, vast commercial potential and the same sly ability to reach out and hook the whole family. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    It has the charm, irony and saucy wit of the original, plus two supporting characters -- a suave, egocentric feline and a cheerfully conniving fairy godmother -- who are funnier than anyone in "Shrek." show more
