  Shrek the ogre meets his bride's parents in a mildly disappointing, occasionally funny sequel to DreamWorks' hit computer-animated comedy "Shrek." The screen debut of author William Steig's Shrek, a big, green, fearsome-looking softie voiced by Mike Myers, was a bubbly, rowdy evocation of a cockeyed fairytale world, even if it relied on topical gags that will seem dated in a few years. Lazy plotting, evanescent jokes, obvious pop-music cues, and the still-imperfect rendering and movement of CGI human figures diminish "Shrek 2," especially compared to its predecessor. As we rejoin Shrek, he's just married the feisty, formerly pretty Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) who was cursed to take ogre form by night and chose to stay that way, full-time, as a sign of love for her mate. Post-honeymoon, the couple is invited to Fiona's homeland, Far Far Away, by her royal dad and mom. The king (John Cleese) and queen (Julie Andrews), unaware that son-in-law and daughter are monstrous of form, flip when the wary Shrek, Fiona and their wisecracking donkey pal (Eddie Murphy) pull into town. Worse, a devious fairy godmother (Jennifer Saunders) plots against the newlyweds and is rewarded with a lot of the cleverest lines. But a pint-sized, swashbuckling Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) gets the lion's share of laughs.
