Shrek : The greatest fairy tale never told.

“The Prince isn’t charming. The Princess isn’t sleeping. The sidekick isn’t helping. The ogre is the hero. Fairy tales will never be the same again.” This is one of the taglines used to promote the first in a franchise of great family movies by Dreamworks. When you get a great computer animated movie that opens with one of the biggest hits from Smash Mouth you know it’s going to be good! This movie never fails to deliver, and features a cast of fairytale and Mother Goose characters that we have all grown to love and hate over the centuries.

Dr. Dolittle 2 : The Doctor Is Back!

While this movie was just as cute and quirky at its origin, Dr. John Dolittle (Eddie Murphy) becomes a Dr. DoGooder as the request of his furry and feathered patients.

Set in a the very modern city of San Francisco, CA, this fresh take on the classic tale is a far cry from the story of the veterinarian from Puddleby-on-the-Marsh.

He usually just had conversations with the family dog (Ellen DeGeneres).

The ritual scares young John so much,……
