SHREK FOREVER AFTER (U) MIKE MYERS, EDDIE MURPHY

U Supposedly the final instalment of the Shrek catalogue, Myers is back as the green ogre with the heart of gold and the trophy (ogre) wife.

Bored with domestic life, Shrek makes a deal with Rumplestiltskin in the hope that he recovers some of his va-va voom.

But careful what you wish for, because out there in aternative-reality land, there might be no wife, you might be hunted, and Rumplestiltskins are king.

And when that happens, you'll want your old life back again - just like Shrek does here. Filmed in 3D, picture entire cinema halls of kids in 3D glasses lapping this harmless escapism up. So don't miss it as it's the last in the series - probably.
