Shrek the Third

Shrek the Third ★★ 2007 (PG)

Third time is not the charm in the latest tale of the cranky ogre. Shrek (Myers), Fiona (Diaz), and Donkey (Murphy) must find an heir by the name of Arthur (Timberlake) to replace Fiona's dying father (Cleese), prevent Prince Charming (Everett) from staging a coup, and deal with the idea of tiny baby ogres and donkey-dragon toddlers. Swashbuckling kitty Puss (Banderas) is along for the ride, as well as the standard host of fairy tale and legendary characters, old and new. Potty gags and in-jokes abound, but don't seem nearly as fresh or fun as in previous efforts. The all-star cast and some of the charm of the first two remains, but all in all the movie spends more time trying to be funny rather than actually being funny and doesn't bring anything fresh or new to the story. 92m/C DVD, HD DVD .

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.
