Bear has retired from the circus to the Russian woods and now just wants to be left alone to sleep, or pursue his hobbies, or chase after Lady Bear. Unfortunately he has been targeted by Masha, the six-year-old terror of the forest, as her Very Best Friend.

Shrek is released on DVD... I've got mine, and it is great! In all seriousness, I think this film is one of the finest artistic achievements of *all time* (and damn funny), and furthermore I predict that animation (particularly computer animation) will be the preeminent artistic form in the next 10 years. So, that's my opinion clarified. What do you guys think? Away you go, esteemed fellow MeFi people!
