“Shrek” is an animated comedy film released in 2001 and directed by Andrew Adamson and Vicky Jenson. The movie takes place in a fairy tale world and follows the adventures of a grumpy ogre named Shrek, voiced by Mike Myers.

The story begins with Shrek living a solitary life in his swamp until a group of fairy tale creatures, who have been banished by the villainous Lord Farquaad, seek refuge in his swamp. Shrek strikes a deal with Farquaad to rescue Princess Fiona, voiced by Cameron Diaz, from a tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon so that he can regain his solitude.

Shrek embarks on the journey with his talkative and witty companion, a donkey named Donkey, voiced by Eddie Murphy. Along the way, Shrek finds himself developing an unlikely friendship with Donkey, who becomes his loyal sidekick.

Upon reaching the tower and rescuing Princess Fiona, Shrek discovers that she has a secret: she turns into an ogre every night due to a curse. Despite Fiona’s initial disappointment upon discovering Shrek’s true identity, the two gradually develop a bond.

As Shrek and Fiona journey back to Lord Farquaad’s kingdom, they face numerous challenges and obstacles. Lord Farquaad, who intends to marry Fiona to become king, is not what he seems to be. Shrek must confront his feelings for Fiona and decide if he is willing to let her go for her own happiness.

In a climactic showdown, Shrek interrupts the wedding ceremony, confesses his love for Fiona, and reveals Farquaad’s deceitful nature. The film concludes with a heart-warming twist as Fiona chooses to be with Shrek, and they share true love’s kiss, breaking the curse and transforming Fiona into a permanently ogre.
