Consensus: While not without its moments, Shrek Forever After too often feels like a rote rehashing of the franchise's earlier entries.

An entertaining conclusion to the franchise -- one that parents should happily endure. But let's hope that's all, folks.

By the middle of the second act, Forever After finally finds its groove, becoming mildly amusing (the actors -- Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, Antonio Banderas -- are in fine form) but never rising to the inspired heights of the original.

This one had the same paucity in wit and script issues as the whole Shrek series.

It's no classic, but Shrek Forever After is a pleasant reminder that every time a cash register rings, this ogre turns angelic.

Shrek Forever After is a fairy tale ending for the series.
