Glücklich bis ans Ende ihrer Tage scheint niemals so Weit Weit Weg wie jetzt, denn die Reise zu Shreks Schwierigkeiten entpuppt sich als ein weiteres chaotisches Abenteuer für Shrek und Fiona!
Mit Hilfe seines treuen, aber wenig edlen Rosses Esel nimmt Shrek es mit einer Zaubertränke brauenden Guten Fee und dem aufgeblasenen Prinz Charming auf. Und auch der Gestiefelte Kater, ein berüchtigter Oger-Jäger, ist ihm auf den Fersen - ein kratzbürstiger Kamikaze-Kater, in dessen Stiefeln das Herz einer Schmusekatze schlägt...
Brandneues Überraschungs-Ende; Musik-Video des Gestiefelten Katers; Rülps-Übungen mit Shrek und Fiona; Internationale Synchronisation; Making Of "Überraschungs-Ende";
Bevor Shrek und Prinzessin Fiona nach den Flitterwochen ihr Familienleben starten, steht ein Besuch bei den Schwiegereltern an, die dummerweise nichts von Shreks Naturell wissen. Wie von dem Oger nicht anders erwartet, fällt der Empfang am königlichen Hof denn auch recht unterkühlt aus, hatte König Harold doch eigentlich den schnöseligen Prinz Charming als Gatten seiner hübschen Tochter auserkoren. Deshalb versucht er nun mit Hilfe der gerissenen Guten Fee und dem gefürchteten gestiefelten Kater seine Heiratspläne durchzusetzen.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Get used to there being a twist...
The story begins with the recitation of another standard fairy tale opening, that one might think as an ending, where Prince Charming (charmingly voiced by Rupert Everett) dashes through incredible perils to reach the unfortunate-cursed princess, Fiona, as his kiss is the only thing that will break the curse. The only problem here: when he arrives to kiss the fair princess, he is greeted by another story-book character who informs him she is on her honeymoon.
The stage is set for a frolic of fairy-tale proportions. The main characters are back - Shrek (Mike Myers) in his typical ogre self (who knew ogres spoke with muddled Celtic accents?); Fiona, every inch the ogre herself night and day (reprised by Cameron Diaz - remember the tale from the first film where she was beautiful by day and hideous by night), is blissful on her honeymoon with Shrek. They return home to be greeted by Donkey (once again the humourous Eddie Murphy), to almost immediately be summoned to Fiona's home by her parents, the king and queen, so that they may meet the husband (not quite the prince they were expecting) and be welcomed into the kingdom of Far, Far Away, which is, true to its word, far, far away (are we there yet? is the constant refrain during the journey).
It is quite delightful to imagine John Cleese and Julie Andrews as the king and queen; their characters do not imitate their features physically, but their standard screen personae come through their voices and characterisations. Rupert Everett as Prince Charming, the scheming social climber, is very well done, with typical British fop panache. However, there is no mistaking Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) as the Fairy Godmother (who, it turns out, is Prince Charming's mother, and given that it is Rupert Everett, well, enough said...) - the animation captures the twinkle in her eye and the sardonic smile as she holds the king to ransom for the secret that he hides (she once granted a wish to him, which is hinted at early on in the film - see if you can predict what it is!).
The king and queen are not surprisingly shocked to discover the ogre-ific state of their only daughter, not to mention the son-in-law; the king decides to do away with Shrek, hiring a hit man (in this instance, a hit cat), Puss-in-boots, voiced by an over-the-top Antonio Banderas. Attacking with the grace of a cat, he is nonetheless thwarted in his charge by a nasty hairball, and joins with the quest to find Happily Ever After-effects with Shrek and Donkey.
There are some good songs here, remakes of popular songs sung with style that befits a fairy-tale, medieval recreation of Hollywood/Hollyweird. Just as Fiona had her surprise chance to be an ogre in the first film, Shrek gets his chance to be drop-dead gorgeous in this film, by stealing the Fairy Godmother's potion for Happily Ever Afters. Donkey shares in this potion and becomes a dashing stallion. So, everyone will live happily ever after, right?
Right, but again, there's a twist (and I'm not going to tell you what it is).
There are lots of cameos - Larry King voices the ugly sister, and Joan Rivers voices her own characters as the red-carpet announcer at the royal banquet akin to the Oscar ceremonies. There are one-liners galore, so many it is hard to recall them all - take a notebook with you to the cinema!
One of the trademarks of Shrek is its homage to various other films - try to make all the connections - Flashdance, Lord of the Rings, Ghostbusters, you name it, it is satirised. The same holds true for various fairy tales - the three blind mice, little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, even Pretty Woman!
The animation quality is superb, and shows just how astonishingly lifelike modern computer-generated graphics have become. An interesting effect, rather like a cross between clay-mation types of physical movements and hand-drawn facial expressions, the type of animation here is approaching lifelike and realistic, again with the twist of being almost puppet-like, to fit the fairy-tale aspect of the film.
Stay through the credits! Why people get up and leave the cinema as soon as the names start I shall never understand, but they missed out the bonus scene at the end, that is well worth the wait (Banderas, as Puss-in-boots, heading off for the Kit-Kat Club, begins the scene, and it just goes on from there).
This is a film for children of all ages, with enough humour for adults to keep them interested, and a classic tale, with modern twists, to delight all audiences.

Do I really need to rehash the plot here? Shrek's and Fiona's newfound happiness together is put to the test when Shrek's royal in-laws, the king and queen of Far Far Away, invite their daughter and her new husband home for a marriage celebration. The folks expect Prince Charming, of course, and are less than prepared for the ogre factor. Prince Charming is none too happy, either, and his mother the glamorous Fairy Godmother (you just can't trust a fairy godmother anymore these days) sets out to right the wrong caused by Shrek's unexpected rescue of Fiona. The king is a willing accomplice, even going so far as to contract a hit on Shrek with the renowned feline assassin Puss in Boots. In order to keep Fiona, Shrek makes the ultimate sacrifice, turning himself into a handsome man, but the Fairy Godmother thwarts him at every turn. Even with the help of his friends from back home in the swamp, it looks like the honeymoon - and marriage itself - is over.
Everyone seems to be wild about Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots, and he does make a great addition to the Shrek universe. The heart of Shrek, however, still remains in the able voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy. It's pretty simple, really - if you enjoyed Shrek, you will certainly enjoy Shrek 2. The extras on the DVD add even more delight to the Shrek 2 experience. The Far Far Away Idol contest is a brilliant addition. You get not one but two filmmaker commentaries (but, sadly, no commentaries with any of the actors), and several looks at the making of the film are also worthy of your time. The rest of the special features are a little less impressive than they look, however - several of them basically just take you to selected scenes from the film itself. Still, there's plenty here to occupy your time and magnify the entertainment value of an ingenious film all but guaranteeing a good time for one and all.
Princess Fiona was once human and due to a curse she turned into an hideous ogre by night and a stunning beauty by day. The curse led Princess Fiona's parents to hide her in a castle guarded by a dragon where only Prince Charming could rescue her. However, Shrek beat Prince Charming to it and sealed the curse by kissing Princess Fiona, which turned her permanently into an ogre. This presents some issues for Shrek as he is well aware of how the world looks upon his kind, with an axe in one hand and a torch in the other. Having this in mind, Shrek refuses to travel and meet Fiona's human in-laws, which leads the married couple into their first argument. Shrek rapidly learns that he can no longer act the way he once did as it will only sour his relationship with his beloved Fiona, which means that he must begin to listen.
As in the first episode of Shreks adventures the audience is to experience an enlightening and hilarious journey with Shrek and his companion, the talkative and histrionic Donkey (Eddie Murphy's voice). This time around Shrek faces new challenges as he must confront family issues, stereotypes, mysterious assassins, love quarrels, political issues, and moral dilemmas in the Kingdom of Far Far Away. All these heavy issues are skillfully balanced with heart-warming and belly-aching comedy, which will enchant a wide range of audiences with its charisma.
