Shrek is more than a fun-loving movie about love, bad guys and happily ever afters. It teaches us important life lessons. It reminds us to go beyond appearances — remember, like Shrek, some of us have layers.
But this ogre has flaws too. This is what makes him even more loveable. Even if he was perfect, who in the world would have the patience to tell the same story every night to their kids? I would get depressed too.
So, what is there left to say but to profess our love for this movie. You can come up with your own way of praising this movie at black tie events. I will stick to repeating what this man has said, clearly, he's a genius.
