Shrek 2 [DVD]
About this deal
To make the effects of this potion permanent, the drinker must obtain his true love’s kiss by midnight.
Without warning, the potion transforms Shrek and Fiona into humans, and Donkey into a white stallion for the following morning.If any character besides Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, or Puss is selected, an alternate ending plays where Cowell would refuse to accept the winner and proclaim himself the victor, leaping onto the judging table and performing his "own" rendition of " My Way". Though he wrote that it is not as good as the first film, Kevin Lally of Film Journal International described it as "inventive and often very funny". Desperate they sought the help of a fairy godmother who had them lock the young princess away in a tower there to await the kiss of the handsome prince charming!
Shrek 2 was released on VHS and DVD on November 5, 2004   and on Game Boy Advance Video on November 17, 2005. Its critical consensus reads, "It may not be as fresh as the original, but topical humor and colorful secondary characters make Shrek 2 a winner in its own right.The film's character Puss in Boots has also received his own series of spin-off media— Puss in Boots (2011), The Adventures of Puss in Boots (2015–2018) and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish (2022)—following his debut. There’s only one fellow who can handle a job like that, and, frankly… he don't like to be disturbed. At the Fairy Godmother's urging, Shrek leaves the castle, believing that the best way to make Fiona happy is to let her go.
The film also took away the highest worldwide gross made by an animated feature, which was before held by Finding Nemo (2003),  although the latter still had a higher overseas-only gross. Shrek 2 takes place following the events of the first film, with Shrek and Donkey meeting Fiona's parents as her zealous Fairy Godmother, who wants Fiona to marry her son Prince Charming, plots to destroy Shrek and Fiona's marriage. It spent ten weeks in the weekly Top 10, remaining there until July 29, and stayed in theaters for 149 days (roughly twenty-one weeks), closing on November 25, 2004.You are hereby summoned to the Kingdom of Far, Far Away for a royal ball in celebration of your marriage at which time the King will bestow his royal blessing… upon you and your…" uh…"Prince Charming. Fiona (VO): Dear Diary… Sleeping Beauty is having a slumber party tomorrow, but Dad says I can’t go.
