Shrek

Shrek

I bet you have never seen a donkey fly! Sometime since the release of this lovable animated satire in 2001 and now, SHREK has morphed into something of a cult-classic, a generational touchstone that make is perfect for a Friday Late Night Movie screening (with friends!) at the Rio Theatre on November 24. Minors welcome in the balcony!

Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ornery ogre named Shrek whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of annoying fairy tale characters. There are blind mice in his food, a big, bad wolf in his bed, three little homeless pigs and more, all banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquaad. Determined to save their home–not to mention his own–Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona to be Farquaad’s bride. Accompanying him on his mission is wisecracking Donkey, who will do anything for Shrek… except shut up. Rescuing the Princess from a fire-breathing dragon may prove the least of their problems when the deep, dark secret she has been keeping is revealed. Featuring the voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, Jon Lithgow, and Vincent Cassel.

SHREK (Vicky Jenson, Andrew Adamson 2001 / 90 mins / PG) It ain’t easy bein’ green — especially if you’re a likable (albeit smelly) ogre named Shrek. On a mission to retrieve a gorgeous princess from the clutches of a fire-breathing dragon, Shrek teams up with an unlikely compatriot — a wisecracking donkey.
