    The Christmas special Shrek the Halls is fabulous.
  3. 80
    Shrek the Halls offers enough zany antics and nicely understated sentiment to justify its existence.
  4. 80
    Shrek the Halls may not be an instant holiday classic--nothing can really compete with the Grinch, the Peanuts Christmas special or the various Rankin-Bass offerings--but it’s enjoyable enough and likely to induce at least a few giggles.

    As Shrek wishes "A smelly Christmas to all and to all a gross night," you may be appallingly charmed.
  6. For families seeking a new Christmas special, particularly if they're already fans of "Shrek" on the big screen, Shrek the Halls is a treat.
  7. 75
    Simple and fun, if not exactly memorable.
  8. 75
    Shrek the Halls does a very good job of top-to-bottom production.

    It's loud and only marginally coherent, but, for a made-for-TV version of a theatrical blockbuster, it looks utterly polished.
  10. There’s not a ton of depth to Shrek the Halls but it is fun.

    It was really funny, especially the break dancing chicken and the stories. My only complaint, it should have been longer.

    Awesome, and Puss in Boots is the cutest animated character I've ever seen!
