When you base a film on the all time classic, “It’s A Wonderful Life,” you will most likely have a winner.
The folks who produce the “Shrek” series have incorporated that grand storyline into their new movie. You have to be pretty much of a jerk to mess up this sure fire plot about appreciating life and the great gifts we take for granted. The folks involved with “Shrek” are not jerks, they are very clever.
This is another winner and I have very little doubt that this series could turn out about six or seven more quality films with first rate actors and the writers talent for “borrowing” brilliant material from award winning movies of the past.
As long as these actors are in the cast, “Shrek” will remain a safe bet to be worth the price of admission: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, John Cleese and Antonio Banderas.
