and Shrek are as similar to each other as the examples I gave,
but they do have things in common. Both present a story from
the sympathetic monster's viewpoint, and both feature a big
guy and his perky little sidekick. I probably didn't think of
Shrek as an example because, unlike the other Dreamworks movies
I listed, I really like Shrek. I don't *want* it to be just
another possible ripoff of a Pixar movie -- even if all that
means is that they heard about Monsters, Inc., then chose to
adapt Shrek from the original book because it was kinda similar.

suck. It was legitimately entertaining. It was clever, it presented a
common idea from a new perspective, and it had some genuinely emotional
moments as well.
Shrek II, on the other hand, was a stanky a dog turd as any what was
ever squeezed from the sphincter of a manged mutt.

What a hoot this character is!
who got to put on a fake British accent twice last
week, for costumed horse rides (Darby's contribution
to the 'show' was flying lead changes every stride for
a while - oh, he was strutting his stuff!) :D
