Hilarious Shrek Quotes to Bring Out the Ogre in You

These Shrek quotes will entertain and inspire you to find happiness within.

The first Shrek movie came out in 2001 and delighted audiences of all ages! The fanciful fairy tale story and a myriad of characters captivated children.

The adult humor weaved through the film seamlessly and kept the parents engaged. It was such a hit that it launched a franchise of ogre films.

Mike Meyers, as the voice of Shrek, stole the heart of millions while reminding us all to be our authentic selves and that true beauty is found within. 

Shrek is filled with lots of memorable characters, but Donkey, voiced by Eddie Murphy, is undoubtedly the show stopper.

Throughout the movie, he has a lot of hilarious one-liners, mostly about not having any friends! Poor Donkey!

Which of these Shrek quotes is your favorite?

There are currently four Shrek movies in the franchise, with the 5th one scheduled for late 2019 or early 2020. I did a little research and it doesn’t appear to be canceled but is clearly taking longer than expected.

It has been so long since I have seen the first four, and since I am basically quarantined in the house with the kids for a while, now might be the perfect time for a refresher.

Which of the films is your favorite? Do you have a favorite character? My least favorite character is, of course, Farquaad, but for a reason you might have missed!

Remember the scene where the three little bears are caged? Shortly after that there is a scene where Papa Bear and Baby Bear are crying, and Mama Bear is missing?

Later in the movie, we get to see the inside of Farquaad’s room…complete with a purple bow wearing bear rug!
