  •  Peter Rainer of New York magazine liked the script, also stating that "The animation, directed by Andrew Adamson and Vicky Jenson, is often on the same wriggly, giggly level as the script, although the more "human" characters, such as Princess Fiona and Lord Farquaad, are less interesting than the animals and creatures -a common pitfall in animated films of all types." 18

The biggest moral of the story is the wrongfulness of judging people by their appearances alone, although this is undercut somewhat by the abundance of short jokes directed at Lord Farquaad. A secondary message is the importance of companionship everybody needs friends and family to offer some form of comfort and support. The above-mentioned can be proved by the example of Shrek who wants at the beginning of the movie to be left alone, but he learns by the end that no man (or ogre) is an island. 19
