After battling a fire-breathing dragon and the evil Lord Farquaad to win the hand of Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), Shrek (Mike Myers) now faces his greatest challenge: his in-laws. Shrek and Princess Fiona return from their honeymoon to find an invitation to visit Fiona’s parents, the King and Queen of the Kingdom of Far, Far Away (Julie Andrews - "Mary Poppins" and John Cleese - "A Fish Called Wanda"). The newlyweds set off with motormouthed Donkey (Eddie Murphy) tagging along. All of the citizens of Far, Far Away turn out to greet their returning Princess, and her parents happily anticipate the homecoming of their daughter and her new Prince. But no one could have prepared them for the sight of their new son-in-law, not to mention how much their little girl has changed.
Little did Shrek and Fiona know that their marriage had foiled all of her father’s plans for her future…and his own. Now the King must enlist the help of a powerful Fairy Godmother, the handsome Prince Charming (Rupert Everett - "My Best Friend’s Wedding") and Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas)to put right his version of "happily ever after." The film is filled with so many delicious gags that it's impossible to catch them all on first viewing, which obviously will make you want to see it again and again.
