Shrek 2

Shrek 2 ★★★ 2004 (PG)

Sequel picks up with Shrek (Myers) and Princess Fiona (Diaz) returning from their honeymoon. They are invited to visit Fiona's parents in the highfalutin' Kingdom of Far, Far Away and Shrek must deal with something more dangerous than dragons or diminutive evil kings—his inlaws, King Harold (Cleese) and Queen Lillian (Andrews), who don't much care to have an ogre in the family (let alone as a daughter). In fact, there's a plot to eliminate Shrek for Fiona's old beau Prince Charming (Everett). The King hires feline assassin Puss-in-Boots (Banderas, uproariously capitalizing on his Spanish heartthrob/Zorro image). Donkey's (Murphy) along as well. The film tries a little too hard in spots, but ya still gotta love the big guy. 92m/C DVD . USD: Andrew Adamson, Kelly Asbury, Conrad Vernon; W: Andrew Adamson, Joe Stillman, J. David Stem, David N.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
