"I'm just a jolly green giant," moans Shrek at his son's birthday party.
Another tale of mid-life crisis and the best Shrek since the first one. Shrek now has three little ogres, his home has become a tourist attraction and every day feels like a drag. Enter Rumpelstiltskin, who dupes Shrek into signing a contract, allowing him to relive one day from his past. The series recovers some of its sly wit (absent in Shrek 3), but the adventure must stop here, on a moderate high.
