Shrekking Toward Gomorrah
« on: March 01, 2015, 07:26:48 PM »
Recently I saw Shrek the Musical. It brought back various memories (my recollection of the original Shrek (2001) was a lot rustier than my recollections of #2 and #3 -- I never saw #4) one of which was the article Shrekking Toward Gomorrah from the National Catholic Register.

While I can't predict whether anyone, besides me, might be interested in conversing about it ... but I thought I'd give it a shot. Anyone?

Quote from: the article
This time Shrek subverts our expectations by allowing her marriage vows to Farquaad to be completed and then having her run off with the ogre and live happily ever after. The fact that she's now married in the eyes of the Church to someone other than Shrek is treated as part of the gag.

Call me snarky, but I bet that, once Fiona turned into an ogress, Farquaad turned around and got an annulment like this *fingersnap*
