I laughed until I cried--it was like watching my own dysfunctional family with all the various ideas of what Christmas "should" be ;-)

DVD $ is a RIP-OFF

"1st off, Shrek The Halls itself is hilarious! Very well done, probably better material than what was in the 2nd & 3rd films. My gripe is absolutely with the dvd itself & its pricepoint. $17.99 (or $19.99 retail)for only 22 MINUTES worth of cartoon is an absolute rip-off!
According to other online outlets, here is the list of features: 12 Days of Christmas Featurette Deck the Halls Featurette Gingy Dunking Game Shrek Carnival Craze Video Game Demo & Cheat Code
That's it?! Sorry but I say just save your loot & rec'd it when ABC shows it 2-3 times this Holiday season. The cartoon is good but it ain't that good!"

"DreamWorks' Shrek the Halls Christmas special will air from 8 to 8:30 on Wednesday, November 28th, on ABC. So watch it then or record it or buy it after you see it (I bet the prices will go down after it comes out since its a short picture!) Or google it to find it cheaper elsewhere!"
Funny, Funny, Funny ...

"Ok, first of all ... it's Shrek. The adult-like inuendos and child-like references is right in line with the wit and charm of the entire Shrek series. I TiVo'd this last year (2007) when it came out for the holidays on TV and I have kept it saved in TiVo this whole time. I watch it at least once a month! It ranks right up there with the three full-length moviews in the series. Hysterically funny. You will have to rewind in certain parts because you'll be laughing so hard you'll miss some. :) Great watch! My only complaint is that it's not long enough ... the good ones never are ... ???? ENJOY as adults and/or with kids for the holidays. Good for lots of laughs!"
Price not so good, but....

"The $17.99 for 22 minutes isn't good, but it being in a Widescreen version is worth it. Besides, how many more times will ABC broadcast it; and when it comes on and I record it, it won't be widescreen."
Great christmas movie short but really funny worth having!

"Me I my family had alot of laughs during this movie. I really wished it was longer though. I paid $12.99, so I kind of expected it to be short. No complaints here this is one of the best in Christmas movies you'll find & you won't be dissapointed."
