Top 10 Moments from Shrek (2001)


The Top Ten

1 All Star Opening All Star Opening

The movie opens with Shrek reading a fairy tail book before ripping the page off and possibly using it as toilet paper as he emerges from the out house as All Star plays as he goes about his daily life, on a side note All Star was originally was suppose to be a place holder until they could get in another song for the opening but ultimately decided to keep it in the movie after the test audience loved it. - egnomac

You knew right from the moment this opening happened that this wasn't your average fairytale.

You knew when this song played you were treated to one of the best animated films of all time. - htoutlaws2012

What a coincidence that I discovered this list after watching 'Shrek Retold'!
