Description

A misunderstood ogre (Mike Myers) reluctantly agrees to rescue a princess in order to free himself from the onslaught of talking pigs, wayward wooden boys, and typhlotic rodents foisted on him by a Lord with a very small castle. But he gets more than he bargained for when a wisecracking donkey (Eddie Murphy) dogs him all the way to Duloc, and the princess (Cameron Diaz) micromanages her rescue. Add a curse, a dragon, and a band of merry men, and you get a fantastical fractured fairytale with enough wit and heart to fill a swamp. This is a movie with layers, like an onion, and one that speaks to both children and adults with its wickedly sly and charmingly irreverent spirit. It made Scottish accents cool, it made Smash Mouth relevant, and it’ll make you a believer. The first film to win the Oscar for Best Animated Picture can add TCFF People’s Choice Winner to its many accolades!
