In this heart-warming and funny film, Shrek and Princess Fiona
are living happily ever after
until Fiona's parents invite
them to visit the castle in the kingdom of Far Far Away. Unaware
that Fiona and Shrek are ogres, the king and queen are shocked to
see them, and Shrek and his father-in-law disagree on everything
from the start. To make matters worse, Fairy Godmother shows up
to remind the king of a bargain they had made to have Fiona married
to her son, Prince Charming. With the aid of Puss-in-Boots, the
king decides to have Shrek eliminated. But Shrek and Donkey prove
far smarter than he gives them credit for, and Prince Charming resorts
to his own tactics to steal Fiona away from Shrek.
