I wonder if Shrek the Third would have been better if Fiona and Shrek decided to go with Artie instead of Donkey and Puss.
It could have given Fiona some much needed character depth as perhaps a softer motherly figure to contrast with the more down to earth Shrek.
I’ll be honest I dont hate Shrek the Third like other people. I think it has a good idea of fatherhood but executed poorly in terms of directing.
It would have been nice to have seen more scenes of Shrek’s abusive dad too to see how far Shrek has grown.
edit: Sidenote, when talking about Shrek the Third, can be people be a little less dramatic about it being so awful and just it’s eh?
