Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
It's wondrous, it's fabulous, it's -- all but unprecedented.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
This is not your average family cartoon. Shrek is jolly and wicked, filled with sly in-jokes and yet somehow possessing a heart.

Washington Post - Desson Thomson
A movie that appeals to the eye, mind, heart and funny bone; that's a pretty good quadruple for any movie.
90
New York Magazine (Vulture) - Peter Rainer
The script, instead of being what we tolerate in order to savor the visuals, is a delight all by itself.

Chicago Reader - Lisa Alspector
A movie whose story may be even more innovative than the superreal solidity of the animated characters.
