Shrek 2

Shrek 2 continues the tale, with the newly-married Shrek being introduced for the first time to his in-laws ('King' John Cleese and 'Queen' Julie Andrews). Shocked and disappointed by their daughter's choice of husband, they promptly devise plans to get her out of this most unsuitable entanglement, and into the arms of Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) the son of the Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders). The plot goes through many twists and turns and introduces a new character in the form of Puss-in-Boots. But the underlying idea of the story is that there cannot possibly be a happy ending for ogres.
