Not since Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and The Iron Giant has an animated movie given me such a sweet "feel good" feeling as did Shrek.

Like most moviegoers, I was humored by the poking fun at Disney's favorite fairy tales and the talkative donkey (excellently voiced by Eddie Murphy), but it was the moving love story, combined with the almost-human expressions of the characters (including the wonderfully "acted" Shrek character who was voiced as humanly as possible by Mike Myers), and the right combination of other characters, animation, film's pace, editing and the rock soundtrack, which made Shrek one of the most enjoyable movies in a long long time.
