“..Although the new Shrek will likely equally enchant the very young, it holds less interest for adults than the three that preceded it..”
by Rob Salem [Toronto Star]

“..All of this would be extremely irritating, and easy to dismiss as cynical manipulation of the moviegoing public - except for the fact that even recycled "Shrek" is still pretty funny, and that kids will thoroughly enjoy it..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]

“.."Forever After" is not the revelation that the first Shrek was, but it more than holds its own against the first sequel and stomps all over "Shrek the Third"..”
by Cathy Jakicic [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel]

“.."Forever After" comes back with more heart and much of the kick-in-the-pop-culture-keister cleverness that made the greenish brute such a breath of fresh air when "Shrek" first blew into town nearly a decade ago..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
