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.
