Why The First Shrek Is The Best In The Franchise

When I created a poll on Instagram last night asking my friends "Which Shrek is the best Shrek?" I had never expected to start a war. What soon followed was me being awoken in the early hours of the morning to cries of "How could you think Shrek one is the best one?!?!?!" and "Shrek Two is obviously superior!" Needless to say, this has now been a debate lasting all day and ruining more friendships than a game of monopoly. So, I am here to settle the argument once and for all and justify why Shrek one is the best film in the Shrek franchise. (This is a blog post I wrote for Buzzfeed in 2018)
