Say what you will about Mike Myers. I have recently heard some pretty terrible stories about him being a diva on movie sets. Then there are failed projects like “The Love Guru” that are pretty wince-inducing. But despite all of these things, I think his work on the Shrek movies has been great! I just finished watching the fourth and final Shrek movie and I have to say that these are the perfect kids movies in the sense that they have something for both kids and adults to giggle about. The animation is fantastic, the guest appearances of great actors (I just found out John Hamm is in ogre in the fourth installment!), and the overall stories are fun and heart-warming.
Plus, you can’t go wrong with Antonio Banderas voicing Puss in Boots. Priceless!
