The Shrek films have a reputation of being little more than nonstop onslaughts of self-aware irony and vapid pop culture references, but is there more to them? We dive deep into all four films of the Shrek Canon in this Wisecrack Edition on The Shrek Movies: Are They Deep or Dumb?

I never liked Shrek. It's mainly Mike Myers Shrek voice. And the entire movie felt unoriginal . Now Pixar movies I like.. with exception to Up.

This might be an unpopular opinion, but Shrek 3 is great. In fact it’s better than great. It’s my second favorite shrek

Is it so hard to believe that we can objectively identify somebody as a villain? Weren't Farquad and the Fairy Godmother and Charming villains? And are you seriously arguing that doing whatever you want and gorging and being a pig are more important than family and friends? That's dumb. (I did not review the movies.)

The series would have ended very differently had they not nerfed Fiona. Heck, third movie could have been Fiona centric and so much more fun as a result.

And here I am, yet again, finding myself wondering if, when they crafted the initial two movies, the creators even intended that level of depth that was found when it was dissected by Wisecrack in later decades. Not saying the analyses wasn't excellent, I always find it enjoyable, but this is just something I wonder about. :)

I recall John Cleese (Monty Python, Shrek 2) saying that the big selling point for being in the movie was that it was so "intelligent". He basically thought that it was deeper and more believable than other animated movies. If you examine it, you're likely to see how ideas (rather than plot points) are leading the way.

I liked the fourth one, deep or shallow. The third was clearly garbage, though.

Well, you chose a very specific interpretation of the first two movies. Some have argued that movies are about following 1: Shrek is afraid, of being loved. 2: Shrek is afraid, of being husband. 3: Shrek is afraid, of being a father 4: Shrek is afraid, of losing his identity In which case this is one of only series that actually has a meaning full story progression. (Arguably done later much better by Kung Fu panda)

Wisecrack should do a Deep or Dumb of Mass Effect 3. Seven years later, and that ending STILL kinda baffles me.

I think I can't entirely agree with you on Shrek the 3rd? I can understand how it can come off as black and white arthur's speech. But in reality he's telling the villains that they don't have to be ruled by how they've grown up I think. While I don't like Shrek the 3rd, I think we have to understand that the villains their WHOLE lives were raised simply as villains. They were always the ones who got the shit end of the stick and had to because that's HOW the story played out. Some people like Shrek obviously hated that shit to the point of isolation; others on the contrary probably have bought into it (much like Farquad and the fairy) to the point where they must UPHOLD it. I think the speech could've been better if Arthur himself emphasized the issue with their society in general putting labels on people for the sake of order (and trying to appreciate some of the chaotic nature of life we live in.) The speech could've definitely been less black or white but I don't think he was trying to say there was a right way to live. I think he was saying that there was a WAY to live that didn't involve just hurting people. and you shouldn't feel compelled to do that or play the role of the "ugly" or bad guy, at least on its own. Shrek Forever After I can't argue about though. That series is definitely dumb and definitely undermines what the first two went though. I think it would've been nice if they even challenged the idea of wanting kids in Shrek the 3rd and while at first it's a yes he realizes that he's losing all the things that made him.. "him." I think the series contradicted itself even more here because the idea isn't necessarily to accept and integrate your imperfection but rather "suck it up you might not be the scary ogre anymore but this is much better" I guess you could argue that with how shrek himself was raised maybe he actually wanted a family? and the idea of having kids is something he could've wanted or liked in some aspect in Shrek the 3rd (I think basically hanging with author like a psuedo-teenage son helped out a bit too.) All in all I only think the 4th Shrek shouldn't have been made. The 3rd Shrek while I think is messy I think is at least a logical conclusion for the series to go. it could've been cleaned up a bit and be a fitting sequel

The last two movies might not be as deep, but they're still damn good. Also it's some of the best looking CGI animated films out there. For some reason earlier CGI films have much more style and beauty. Nowadays, 99% of them just look vomit-inducing.

Going back to the thing about Farquaad being alive, a rather notable halloween short was relased where shrek and donkey find themselves in the old duloc castle on a dare because Farquaad's ghost still haunts it. (I haven't seen it in a while) but if I remember correctly, all of the supernatural events were fabricated by shrek's friends.

To answer the "Is Farquad still alive thing" there is an answer for that! A ride at Universal Studios! It's about Shrek and Fiona on their way to their Honeymoon post 1st movie. Farquad *as a ghost* (so he dead asf) is trying to kill Fiona in order to marry her in the afterlife. Ride Shenanigans ensue.

Both surprised, relived, and disappointed that all the comments aren't just "Shrek is love, Shrek is life." What happened to you, TRvid comments? You used to be cool.... I mean, you didn't , you're the worst, but at least I knew where is stood before, even if it was mostly on fire. One must imagine Sisyphus Shrek-y

Thank you for this video, I love Shrek so much and people almost never get it. Most thought of it as a simple childish movie. It feels good to have someone explain it in detail and calling it deep.

Well, the very fact that he ends up in a conventional system inevitably and wants to have it, gives the last movie a very realistic touch (cough, cough). I don't know if it was intentional, but that becomes a meta-criticism of itself. First two movies: Fairy tales are unrealistic, we make our own happy endings. Last movie: Even our own stories end up imperfect, let's revert back to what is comfortable.

I disagree about Shrek 4. I found it "deep". It teaches dads who are frustrated with the logistics of family life to appreciate what they have instead. That's a great message that many need to hear. There's nothing wrong with saying that happiness lies in family life (which is stated in numerous movies). Shrek 4 points out that family life is more fulfilling than single life in all it's glory. Family life is harder, but it has long term happiness too. It can be hard for single men to understand this until they've experienced it themselves.
