This being about fiction, they're usually at least moderately attractive. Shrek, a green ogre who loves the solitude in his swamp, finds his life interrupted when countless fairytale characters are exiled there by order of the fairytale-hating Lord Farquaad of Duloc.Lord Farquaad banishes characters and threatens them with execution.There's also a scene where a fire-breathing dragon chases Donkey, Shrek, and Fiona, and actors dressed like skeletons writhe and dance around the stage.William Steig (book), Andrew Adamson (story), Andrew Adamson (screenplay), Joe Stillman (screenplay), J. Weiss (screenplay), Cody Cameron (additional dialogue), Walt Dohrn (additional dialogue), Chris Miller (additional dialogue), David P. As with its predecessor, it has quite a bit of adult innuendo, potty humor, and gross-out jokes, though the musical does seem to have a bit more adult humor than the cartoon.The Amazon Brigade is an elite fighting unit, often the best of the best or damn near close to it, that is composed entirely of women.Naturally, they should never be underestimated, for they can and will kick your ass, potentially easily.
The winner gets the "privilege" of rescuing Fiona so that Farquaad may marry her.

Shrek and Donkey easily defeat the other knights in wrestling-match fashion, and Farquaad accepts his offer to move the fairytale creatures from his swamp if Shrek rescues Fiona.
Impressionable children everywhere were introduced to a fat, smelly, green ogre 15 years ago. Lord Farquaad is obviously not going to rescue her himself, so he decides to host a tournament to find someone dumb (I mean, valiant) enough to do it for him.
Shrek tells them that he will go ask Farquaad to send them back.
