Today's favourite is an ensemble cast. I just couldn't decide which character was my very favourite one. So I'm picking the entire cast of Shrek.
I can watch the first two movies over and over again (and I have). The films have a nice message: what's on the inside is more important than what's on the outside. Plus, they're pretty darn entertaining. (I'm looking forward to Shrek Forever After, which is supposed to be released next year.)
One of my favourites didn't appear until Shrek 2. Puss in Boots... well, what can I say? There's something irresistible about a cat with a Spanish accent (and I'm not even a cat person). Plus, that thing he does with his eyes... too cute.
But Shrek and Fiona will always be some of my favourite fictional characters. They have their ups and downs, but they love each other. Of course, it's a love that's based on what's on the inside (because, let's face it, ogres are not exactly pretty).
There's also a cute Christmas special called Shrek the Halls. If you don't mind a bit of belching and farting, it's pretty entertaining... and a unique addition to the traditional holiday special lineup. I've seen it a few times, and I still get a kick out of it.
One of these days I want to get my hands on the original book by William Steig. It looks like it would be pretty amusing.
