  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
When his frog-in-law suddenly croaks, Shrek (Myers) finds himself The Third in line for his throne (or is it first?). Mortified at the thought of having to rule Far Far Away, Shrek, along with his pals Donkey (Murphy) and Puss In Boots (Banderas), embark on an adventure to find the rightful heir to the throne, Arthur. Will Shrek be able to seat the awkward Arthur on the King

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows bold, vibrant colors combined with very good shadow delineation, making for a realistically dimensional-looking animated picture. Contrast is nicely balanced and black levels are deep. Details are rendered very well, from the sheen of horses
