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?

Everytime I see Rumplestiltskin I think of Shane Dawson and I feel like if you dubbed his lines over Shane's videos, it wouldnt really change his content.

Your point on the fact that Shrek 4 is bad is very flawed, you said that Shrek Forever after says that you must accept social norms and idealistic standards, but look it up this way, you said that the messages of the two first films were that YOU MUST ACCEPT THE IMPERFECT REALITY, and, Isn't it the message of Shrek 4? Accept his imperfect life as a father and husband? The problem with Shrek Forever after it is that replaced the goofy and funny tone of the first and second with a dramatic and sad tone, but it is explained by the fact that Shrek The Third was the complete opposite, it passed from a comedy to a circus show for kids (though it doesn't justify it's change of tone), so the creators wanted to make see Shrek as deep, and they achieved it l, Shrek 4 is a masterpiece, if it was a separate story from the Shrek universe it would be really appreciated.

Long story short there were these kids at my school who are totally and literally obsessed with shrek. They were totally obsessed and it was kind of creepy… So I decided to put an end to it… Or so I tried to. I decided to make “the Peppa Pig club”. All of the “Shrek club” people got very very mad at me and started screaming at me for a whole week. They were talking trash and even telling the teachers if Shrek or Peppa Pig was better. I’m just did this for fun and games and anyways… It’s turned into a war now. LOL

If we go deep the princess narrative is pretty fucked. Her whole identity has to be determined by his lover, She needs to find love to validate herself.

I liked Schiffrillas Productions' take on Shrek 4. It's more deep than Wisecrack gives it credit for.

I think the 4th was amazing from an entirely story telling point. Maybe it does not fit in the philosophy presented the first 2 movies (the third does not exist), but it does not have to. They explored the last question in our characters journey: After you got everything you wanted and you fought for, now what? Life becomes dull to Shrek he never really got used to the whole parenting thing and being popular, so he wished to change everything. The move makes our characters live a life without each other, they realize why they ended up together on the beginning and they fight again to gain each other back. I also liked the deeper exploration between Shrek and Fiona's relationship. I thought it was a good movie to end the franchise, and it might not be deep, but I don't think is a story made for us to ponder much about its message, I really believe the story was made for the characters.

You forgot the Shrek Xmas special in your analysis. Fiona, who spent many years by herself in the tower, seems to feel the need to surround herself with people even to the degree where it is inappropriate. Xmas is for the kids. The focus should be solely on the kids. New Years is for going out and surrounding yourself with crowds of people - Shrek got that right in the Xmas special and Fiona overruled him. In Shrek 4, Fiona is a bit indiscriminate in who she invited to what should be a children's party. A few close family friends who have been like aunts and uncles to the kids, their children, and either the kids the triplets play with or their classmates. Inviting the whole town takes the focus off of the kids and creates the situation that leads to Shrek's meltdown. If Fiona wants to invite the whole town to her own birthday, that is one thing, but this was ridiculous. If the whole town is there, you are on display, you are always performing, you can't let your hair down. In Shrek 4, Shrek found himself a parody of his old self - instead of someone people were afraid of, someone who was expected to growl on command. Secondly, life seemed like ground hogs day - repetitive and unvarying and Shrek was taking no responsibility for his part in that. For Shrek 3, the exploration of father-hood is not bad. Shrek's fear is that he won't be able to be a good father - so they brought into the story a character whose father dumped him at the school and disappeared - it sounds like he is likely dead. Arthur is there to teach Shrek that he can be a dad and Shrek there to teach Arthur that he matters after a life of not seeming to matter to anyone. There are similarities between Mr Phillip's performance in the Christmas pantomime in Season 2 episode 6 of Anne with an E and Prince Charming's performance in the play of Shrek 3. There is also an irony where Prince Charming suddenly becomes the leader of all the villains - ok, except the cross-dressing wolf in the Three Little Pigs. They were only villains in the first place because other characters, such as Charming, insisted that they be that way because he needed a foil. Charming can only be the hero if he makes Shrek into the villain - and yet all these people that Charming made into villains so as to make themselves look more heroic flock to him. Arthur could be telling them that they can be anything they want - he does a bit of that like you say, but he is also telling them not to let other people who don't have their best interests at heart define who they are. Arthur tells them that they matter in their own right - that they are not just there to make other characters look good. I'd rather focus on the latter aspect of it than the former - since it is the better of the two messages.

I think the dumbest thing it's classifying this movie as deep or dumb. You can say a movie it's deep/dumb or etc wen a movie it's made for certain genre and can fail/succeed to that certain purpose. Shrek's movie made for entertaining, and it achieves that goal with class and perfection, but not only silly entertaining, it's a good quality movie, with a good study of the characters (not meant to be extremely realistic just expressive), good music, spectacular design for the time. Of course is not meant to be deep but that doesn't make it a dumb movie. So I say this analysis is absolutely unnecessary.

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.
