’Repellent meaning mongering’

Thomas Hibbs -- author of the excellent Shows about Nothing -- helps explain why my children, should I ever have any, will not see Shrek or its sequels -- at least not until they've been given a thorough grounding in classic fairy tales (and possibly not even then). As too few moviegoers and too few filmmakers seem to realize, you shouldn't see the satire -- especially not the "parasitic" variety -- until you can understand and appreciate the original.

(For you newbies, Catherine and I had a discussion way back when about some of the Shrek series' unintended messages.)
